Drinking Coke is bad for you

  1. In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don’t immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down.

    20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get it’s hands on into fat. (There’s plenty of that at this particular moment)

    40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dialate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.

    45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.

    >60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.

    >60 Minutes: The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you’ll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water.

    >60 minutes: As the rave inside of you dies down you’ll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You’ve also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth.

  2. Sometimes i wonder if the food and beverage industry are invested in the medical industry as well. Would sure be profitable with so many people going sick
  3. All true! It is also true you can die in a thousand different ways regardless of your diet. Should you survive to the ripe old age of 90 or so, you'll probably be shitting in your "depends" while trying to figure out the difference between your breakfast and a turd in the toilet. During a brief lucid moment you may find yourself wishing you had drank more Coke.:D
  4. Sure, most food companies are owned (in part at least) by chemical corporations, and vica versa, its a natural vertical integration over time.

    The food industry needs bulk additives, raw products, flavour enhancers, preservatives galore, hundreds of million of tonnes of pesticides, phosphates, chemical fertilisers, which are directly manufactured by chemical concerns.

    Think of pure table salt, which is the cheap bit thats left, after all the valuable trace elements and minerals are extracted-so that they can be sold to you in pillform, in the health food shop.

    Of course, "alternative" medicine is booming-the sales figures at least, but what do they tell you if something like that doesnt help you?

    "see your doctor if symptoms persist."

    The same docter, who will prescribe you drugs, manufactured by dow-corning, lever and kitchen (etc) who also run some of the biggest fertilser/chemical (and drug testing ) operations on the planet.

    Jesus H Christ, thats depressing
    :( :mad: :eek: :confused: :(

  7. Nothing wrong with her bones
  8. Soda, diet or not, is definitely not good for you. If you have it once in a while, not a biggie, but every day, it's trouble in the long run. Just goodle it.
