The Beyond Compare Connection Between Warren Buffet And The Coca-Cola Co (NYSE:KO)

Warren Buffet’s connection with any firm revolves around trading for 99 out of 100 times, keeping the one for his chemistry with The Coca-Cola Co (NYSE:KO). As per the reports, the billionaire trader and investor confessed on CNBC that out of all the calories he consumed, one-quarter came from drinking Coca-Cola soda.

What Buffet Has To Say:

The 84-year-old Berkshire-Hathaway CEO stated that he could confess even at this age that one-quarter of all the calories which he consumed came from Coca-Cola. He further added that he never understood that fact how anyone could feel better than him. Leaving apart the past three years, Buffet claims to have never missed a work day without drinking the soda in one way or another. He only had to take a step back when doctors found symptoms of prostate cancer radiation.

Even though he was diagnosed by one of the deadliest forms of cancer, but Buffet never thought that it occurred due to drinking coca-cola excessively. The timing of valuable comments from one of the top ten billionaires is perfect. He spoke about his drinking preferences after a weekend singing praises of soda during the annual shareholders’ meeting of Berkshire-Hathaway, which was held in Omaha, Nebraska.

It’s not the first time when Buffet has confessed his love for drinking coke on a daily basis. He even told in the past that the secret to his ever growing happiness was nothing but to eat like a six-year-old kid. In February, he said that if he ate 2,700 calories on any particular day, a quarter of that would be coca-cola. He further added that he drank at least five 12-ounce servings on a daily basis without any failure.

He stated that he checked the actuarial tables and found that the least number of deaths were among 6-year old kids, so he decided to eat like a 6-year-old kid forever.
