Coca-cola. According to copious advertising, Coke “is it!”, it is “the real thing!”, it is “life!”, and “you can’t beat the feeling!”.
But what does Coke really do to our bodies?
From the Renegade Pharmacist, “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 and other flavorings cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down.” – doesn’t that sound like fun!
Click through to this HuffPost article, or the original RP “What Happens One Hour After Drinking a Can of Coke” and perhaps consider a glass of water next time.
