    Why not?

    Do you think gin is healthy?

    For the same reason liquor, sodas and cigarettes are still legal. People like to destroy themselves for the sacrifice of pleasant sensation

    Lots of things are unhealthy. We dont ban potato chips either. It's up to the consumer to behave responsibly

    Because people still buy it. Money is the bottom line. Nobody cares about your health or well being.

    Same reason every other soda is "still a drink", and same reason you can buy hamburgers that clock in at well over 1000 calories, and same reason so many other high calorie, high unhealthy fat, high sugar, nutritionally deficient foods and beverages are still out there...because people enjoy them (there's a market for them). No one is required to consume them if they don't want to.

    In case you haven't noticed, "unhealthy" is the rule for what comes out of the the food industry, not the exception.

    What would you suggest it should be?

    As someone’s already said, “imbibable liquid” - a liquid that can be, and is designed to be, drunk.

    Being “unhealthy” doesn't affect whether it's a “drink” or not. I'd guess that the majority are unhealthy!

    Because it's an imbibable  liquid.

    The same reason that vodka, donuts, McDonald's and KFC are still available.
