Coca-Cola was originally marketed as a nerve tonic and substitute for morphine. No, really. Over the past 130-odd years, consumers have used the beverage as a DIY solution for almost every problem you can imagine. This infographic looks at 50 alternate uses for Coke; from neutralising jellyfish stings to cleaning your toilet.
Soft drinks are regularly cited as one of the top causes of obesity and tooth decay in Australia: yet we still quaff them by the gallon. You know it's bad for you - you may have even tried to quit - but that highly addictive sugar hit will always have you in its thrall.
This infographic breaks down the sugar content in five popular drinks; from Coke to Powerade. The ranking might actually surprise you. (Who would have thought a certain iced tea would be worse than Red Bull?)

If you've grown a (ginger) beer belly in recent years, it's probably time to cut soft drinks from your diet for good. This infographic provides 12 proven weaning tactics to help you quit.
This week, the iconic Coca-Cola bottle celebrated its 100th birthday. To mark the occasion, the American-style BBQ restaurant Surly's has brewed up a new menu that uses Coke as the primary ingredient. No really. The specials on offer include Coca-Cola BBQ chicken wings, a pulled pork candied apple sandwich with Coca-Cola BBQ sauce and Coca-Cola glazed pork spare ribs.

Coke Life is a new "mid calorie" soft drink that uses a natural sweetener extracted from the leaves of the stevia plant.

For the rest of the summer, you will be able to get the can in blue, lime green, pink, purple and orange varieties. This is obviously a blatant gimmick to sell more units; much like last year's "Share a Coke" campaign.
