Coca Cola. How Much Harm Can You Do The Human Body?

[b]Do you know how much harm a bottle of coca cola means to the body? I understand a bottle contains an average of 8-equivalent cubes of sugar as it also has bleaching properties. A bottle cleanses so well any dirty entrapment. How true is this? Experts in this forum should please, educate us.

Abegi. Have a coke and a smile- that was the slogan in my time. Wat's wit all this crap about leaving a tooth in a glass of coke for a period of time and the tooth will erode and eventually disappear? This is utter bull,yes it causes your teeth to decay,makes some people fat and will give you jedi-jedi but nothing in life is fair! So Tafari, keep up the good work- long live coca-cola. If u don't like it,stick to kunu and zobo.

Ok, about Cola drinks.

Before I continue let me state for the record that I drink 10-12 cans a week.

Depending on brand and country you can expect the following in your cola;

- Sugar

- Phosophoric acid

- Aspartame

- Saccharin

- Caffeine

SUGAR apart from the common obesity and diabetes we all blame sugar for, sugar has also been implicated in suppressing IMMUNE response. Studies showed sugar solution impaired the ability of white blood cells to ingest bacteria for up to 7 hours. Other health experts also claim drinking a can of cola provides enough sugar to suppress the immunity for 4hours.

PHOSPHORIC ACID

this upsets the normal levels of calcium in the blood , decrease of calcium often sets the stage for dental caries and osteoporosis ie brittle bones especially in kids. As this also acidifies the blood, it encourages growth microbes just as alkalinised blood prevents their survival. High phosphate has aslo been linked with damaged ateries.

ASPARTAME

Found in most 'Diet' colas, aspartame when ingested releases over 50mg of METHANOL not the ethanol found in booze. Methanol is known to cause neurological damage and blindness .experts have linked aspartame to 'Attention deficeit' in children.

SACCHARIN

Believe it or not , saccharin is a derivative of PETROLEUM. Its used because its many times sweeter than actual sugar. Unfortunately its been implicated as a carcinogen in many cancers including the pancreas.

CAFFEINE

A can of cola provides one with 45mg of caffiene which is enough to cause withdrwal symptoms after frquent daily intake. The symptoms of withdrwal are depression weakness muscle pain, tremors and PMS , to mention a few, according to johns hopkins university.

SODIUM BENZOATE

Used as a preservative, blamed as the cause of allergies like eczema, urticaria rash in soda drinkers. That notwithstanding, I still drink over 10 cans a week.

'The is just good for you!' really doesnt work on me. Oh wow, what i wanted to see is what i saw? Wow, when it got cleaner, i attributed it to my mental powers. But carry on, on your quest to erase the hype.

I am not advertising coke for you. cocacola has been there for long. It sells by itself. What I am trying to do is to erase hype and unfounded story about coke. In your acclaimed experiment, what u want is what you see! However that does not describe soda at all. Above all change your mentality about coke. It is just good for you!

Abeg read what i wrote before you point at me. I said it cleans it but maybe not perfectly but atleast some of the dirt or rust or whatever will be gone. I ddnt claim it bleaches.

@ iice, the veracity of ur claim is skeptical. for your info, soda is carbonated water ( weak acid ). just co2 impregnated in water. It has mild acidic properties. but to claim it bleaches is a fallacy. soda cleans the body system( viscera) of toxic/unwanted materials. It is meant to replenish the system. cocacola products are satified and safe for drinking.

Nothing tastes like cocacola. It is the [b]REAl thing [/b]

And yes there are alarms about coffee despite the success of Starbucks and their ilk. Unfortunately certain people can't do without their daily cup or two.

Saying it has caffeine is not the same as saying it can be used in place of dettol (an obvious lie).

Caffeine is more concentrated in coffee and tea, and peope are not sounding such alarms over them.

Abi o, and multiplying that by how many years you have been consuming soda

yeah, we know it is negligible, doesn't mean it is harmless. Negligible, from 1 bottle right? wat about when you take a bottle everyday for 365 days, will it still be negligible?

Yes I do! What is the concentration(ppm) of of caffine in coke?

It is too negligible to cause any ill effect.

This is a fact.

All the rumours about cocacola and other products are unfounded.

I know a lot about the product and its xteristics.

I can authoritatively inform you that cocacola is good for the body. Not because i am a stakeholder, but bc i know the constituents and the effect on the body.

Drink coke always! Make it Real
