Drink all the sugar you want!
The world's biggest soft-drink maker is responding to a controversial proposal by New York mayor Michael Bloomberg.
He wants to limit the size of sugary drinks at restaurants, theaters, and street carts.
Coca-cola argues there isn't a scientific link between obesity and sugary drinks.
They claim the intake of sugar from drinks fell 39-percent from 1999 to 2010.
During the same time, coke says the percentage of obese kids rose 13-percent and the percentage of obese adults rose 7-percent.
