And you wonder if Coke is bad for you? Take a look at how Barry (gray thinning hair) and Robin Gibb (toupee plopped on his head) aged. How Jay Black (of Jay and the Americans at the time, now solo and no longer allowed to mention the band name) became quite frog-like. And yes, that's Neil Diamond without his hairpiece.
What happens after you drink a can of COKE...
Within the first 10 minutes, 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. This is 100 percent of your recommended daily intake… Within 20 minutes, your blood sugar spikes, and your liver responds to the resulting insulin burst by turning massive amounts of sugar into fat. Within 40 minutes, caffeine absorption is complete; your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, and your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. Around 45 minutes, your body increases dopamine production, which stimulates the pleasure centers of your brain – a physically identical response to that of heroin….
The chemicals in a can of ordinary, "harmless" Coke or Diet Coke include: Phosphoric Acid: Which can interfere with the body's ability to use calcium, leading to osteoporosis or softening of the teeth and bones. Caffeine…(which causes) insomnia, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, elevated blood cholesterol levels, vitamin and mineral depletion, breast lumps, birth defects, and perhaps some forms of cancer. And either sugar (which can lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, premature aging)….or Aspartame….There are over 92 different health side effects associated with aspartame consumption including brain tumors, birth defects, diabetes, emotional disorders and epilepsy/seizures.
Soda consumption and childhood obesity (are linked) and Just one extra can of soda per day can add as much as 15 pounds to your weight over the course of a single year!
• One soda per day increases your risk of diabetes by 85 percent
•Soda drinkers have higher cancer risk. While the federal limit for benzene in drinking water is 5 parts per billion (ppb), researchers have found benzene levels as high as 79 ppb in some soft drinks…
•Soda has been shown to cause DNA damage – courtesy of sodium benzoate, a common preservative found in many soft drinks, which has the ability to switch off vital parts of your DNA. This could eventually lead to diseases such as cirrhosis of the liver and Parkinson's.
If you struggle with an addiction to soda….remember, sugar is actually more addictive than cocaine!)
