Say goodbye to all the calcium, zinc, electrolytes, magnesium, etc. you had stored. Enter: sugar crash.
In the first ten minutes, 10 teaspoons of sugar flood into your system, which is 100% of the recommended daily intake. By 40 minutes, your pupils dilate and blood pressure rises, as sugar is being poured into the bloodstream. Just five minutes later, at 45 minutes your body goes through the same physical reaction as if heroin is in your system. Basically, increased amounts of dopamine ignite the “pleasure centers” of your brain. And by 60 minutes? You’ll most likely have to use the bathroom, in which you will pee out any nutrients you did have in your body. Say goodbye to all the calcium, zinc, electrolytes, magnesium, etc. you had stored. Enter: sugar crash.
Coca-Cola is worth $74 billion : That is more than Pepsi, Starbucks, Red Bull and Budweiser combined
In the first year Coca-Cola creator John Pemberton sold an average of just nine glasses a day. The company now sells 1.9 billion beverage servings every day. 3.1% of all beverages consumed around the world are Coca-Cola products. If every drop of Coke ever produced were put in 8-ounce bottles and laid end-to-end, they would reach the moon and back over 2,000 times
Coca-Cola is Acidic
Which means it can rot your teeth, destroying the enamel, causing you physical discomfort, and mental stress . An interview with Dr. James McKay, formerly of the Naval Medical Research Institute, found that colas are closest in pH level to vinegar–between 2.0 and 3.4, according to the Food and Drug Administration. In 2010 a Danish study showing that men who drank 32 ounces (around 1 litre) or more of Coca-Cola daily could reduce their sperm count by nearly 30 percent.
A can of Coca-Cola contains 64 mg of caffeine. Too much caffeine in the body will raise cortisol levels, this may lead to muscle aches and pains, poor skin complexion and can even prevent the body from burning body fat. A can of Coca-Cola contains 39 grams of sugar. Too much sugar will lead to body fat accumulation. The liver can store about 90 to 100 grams of glycogen (sugar), after that the body will convert any excess sugar into body fat. The DNA of people who drink the equivalent of 20 ounces of sugary drinks daily is almost five years older than those who don’t consume carbonated beverages. The University of California San Francisco researchers contend that regular consumption of sugar-sweetened drinks can influence disease development, not only by straining the body’s metabolic control of sugars but also through accelerated cellular aging of tissues.
The carbonation in Coke causes calcium loss in the bones. The carbonation irritates the stomach, The stomach “cures” the irritation the only way it knows how. It adds the only antacid at its disposal: calcium. It gets this from the blood. The blood, now low on calcium, replenishes its supply from the bones. If it did not do this, muscular and brain function would be severely impaired. Fizzy drinks contain high levels of toxic pesticides and insecticides, high enough to trigger cancer, damage the nervous and reproductive systems, cause birth defects and severe disruption of the immune system according to CSE. A huge, decades-long study involving more than 33,000 Americans has yielded the first clear proof that drinking sugary beverages interacts with genes that affect weight, amplifying a person’s risk of obesity beyond what it would be from heredity alone
Over consumption of sugar will lead to weight gain and a can of Coca-Cola contains 39 grams of sugar. It’s a simple home truth that the more body fat you are carrying the more likely you are to develop diabetes. The body becomes less efficient at dealing with sugar the more you consume it and depending on the amount. Daily consumptions of fizzy drinks can lead to insulin resistance, which may eventually lead to diabetes. This happens when cells become permanently damaged. Diabetes currently affects more than 371 million people worldwide and is expected to affect 552 million by 2030.
For years, doctors have speculated that certain foods and beverages like Coca-Cola and Dr Pepper may have something to do with ADHD. What these substances seem to do, is worsen ADHD symptoms or affect behaviour that mimics the signs of ADHD in children, behaviour such as hyperactivity, mood swings and energy fluctuations.
Is it really the end of the world? of you stop consuming coke that is so toxic for your body and even mental health. Make a wiser choice.
