Owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the largest religious university in the USA has shunned caffeinated sodas since at least the mid 1950's, the school's director of dining services Dean Wright explained in a rather blunt BYU Q&A.
Wright said the decision to offer caffeinated sodas stemmed from student interest, which has grown in the last few years.
"Despite what was reported, the Church revelation spelling out health practices (Doctrine and Covenants 89) does not mention the use of caffeine".
"I am drinking CAFFEINATED Diet Coke", one smiling student tells The Daily Universe between sips. "The Church's health guidelines prohibit alcoholic drinks, smoking or chewing of tobacco, and "hot drinks" - taught by Church leaders to refer specifically to tea and coffee".

BYU Dining Services says it has already begun selling canned and bottled caffeinated soft drinks, but says fountain equipment will take longer to update.
BYU student Wesley Monahan, also known as "the caffeine dealer", owns Caffeine Corner. "Consumer preferences have clearly changed and requests have become much more frequent". But the dining halls will only sell Coca Cola products. "We created faithful customers out of something that should have been a normal thing, selling caffeine on campus", Monahan said.
