Harmful effects of coke


Have you ever wondered what exactly Coca Cola is?


After 10 minutes: The sugar contained in a glass of Cola can cause a

devastating “strike” on the body. The cause being the phosphoric acid

which inhibits the action of sugar.


After 20 minutes: A leap in insulin levels in bloodstream occurs.


After 40 minutes: Ingestion of caffeine is finally completed. The

eye’s pupils are expanding. Blood pressure rises because the liver

disposes more sugar into the bloodstream. The adenosine receptors

become blocked thereby preventing drowsiness.


After 45 minutes: The body raises production of the dopamine hormone,

which stimulates the brain pleasure center. Similar to the reaction

Heroin creates.


After 1 hour: Phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in the

gastrointestinal tract, which supercharges metabolism. The release of

calcium through urine takes place.


After more than 1 hour: Diuretic effects of the drink enters in “the

game”. The calcium, magnesium and zinc are removed out of the body,

which are a part of our bones, as well as sodium. At this time we can

become irritable or subdued. The whole quantity of water, contained in

a coca cola, is removed through urination.


When having a cold bottle of Coke and enjoying its undeniable

freshness are we aware of what chemical “cocktail” we are putting into

our bodies? The active ingredient in Coca-Cola is orthophosphoric

acid. Due to its high acidity, cisterns used for transporting the

chemical have to be equipped with special reservoirs designed for

highly corrosive materials.


Let’s have a look at “the anatomy” of one of the most advertised

products of “Coca-Cola Co.” – Coca-Cola Light without caffeine. This

drink contains Aqua Carbonated, E150D, E952, E951, E338, E330, Aromas,



Aqua Carbonated – this is sparkling water. It stirs gastric secretion,

increases the acidity of the gastric juice and provokes flatulency.

Filtered tap water is what is primarily used.


E150D – this is food coloring obtained through the processing of sugar

at specified temperatures, with or without addition of chemical

reagents. In the case of coca-cola, ammonium sulfate is added.


E952 – Sodium Cyclamate is a sugar substitute. Cyclamate is a

synthetic chemical, has a sweet taste, which is 200 times sweeter than

sugar, and is used as an artificial sweetener. In 1969 it was banned

by FDA, since it, as well as saccharin and aspartame, caused cancer in



E950 – Acesulfame Potassium. 200 times sweeter than sugar, containing

methyl-ether. It aggravates the operation of the cardiovascular

system. Likewise, it contains asparaginic acid which can also cause an

excitant effect on our nervous system and in time it can lead to

addiction. Acesulfame is badly dissolved and is not recommended for

use by children and pregnant women.


E951 – Aspartame. A sugar substitute for diabetics and is chemically

unstable at elevated temperatures it breaks down into methanol and

phenylalanine. Methanol is very dangerous as only 5-10ml can cause

destruction of the optic nerve and irreversible blindness. In warm

soft drinks, aspartame transforms into formaldehyde which is a very

strong carcinogen. Symptoms of aspartame poisoning include:

unconsciousness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, palpitation,

weight gain, irritability, anxiety, memory loss, blurry vision,

fainting, joint pains, depression, infertility, hearing loss and more.

Aspartame can also provoke the following diseases: brain tumors, MS

(Multiple Sclerosis), epilepsy, Graves’ disease, chronic fatigue,

Alzheimer’s, diabetes, mental deficiency and tuberculosis. Later, this

substance was initially illegal due to its dangers but was again made

legal in a suspicious manner.


E338 – Orthophosphoric Acid. This can cause irritation of the skin and

eyes. It is used for production of phosphoric acid salts of ammonia,

sodium, calcium, aluminum and also in organic synthesis for the

production of charcoal and film tapes. It is also used in the

production of refractory materials, ceramics, glass, fertilizers,

synthetic detergents, medicine, metalworking, as well as in the

textile and oil industries. It is known that orthophosphoric acid

interferes with the absorption of calcium and iron into the body which

can cause weakening of bones and osteoporosis. Other side effects are

thirst and skin rashes.


E330 – Citric Acid. It is widely used in pharmaceutical and food

industries. Salts of citric acid (citrates) are used in the food

industry as acids, preservatives, stabilizers, and in the medical

fields – for preserving blood.


Aromas – unknown aromatic additives


E211 – Sodium Benzoate. It is used in production of some food products

for anti-bacterial and anti-fungal purposes. It is often found in

jams, fruit juices and fruit yogurts. It’s not recommended for use by

asthmatics and people who are sensitive to aspirin. A study conducted

by Peter Piper at the Sheffield University in Britain, found that this

compound causes significant damage to DNA. According to Peter, sodium

benzoate which is an active component in preservatives, doesn’t

destroy DNA, but deactivates it. This can lead to cirrhosis and

degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease.


So, if you can’t imagine a life without coca-cola, take advantage of

the following recommendations:


– Many distributors of coca-cola in U.S use this drink for cleaning

their truck engines.


– Many police officers in U.S have bottles of coca-cola in their cars

and when a car accident happens, they wash the blood off of the road

with it.


– Coca-Cola is a great tool for removing rusty stains on chrome

surfaces of cars. To remove corrosion from a car battery, pour Coke on

it and the corrosion will disappear.


– To unscrew a rusty screw, dip a cloth in Coca-Cola and wrap around

the screw for several minutes.


– To clean stains from clothes – pour Coca-Cola on the dirty clothing,

add washing detergent and run the washing machine as usual. You will

be surprised at the results.


– In India, some farmers use Coca-Cola instead of pesticides for pest

extermination because it’s cheaper and the effect is very similar.


Coca-Cola is undeniably a very useful product. The key is to use it

for purposes that do not include drinking! Here is a video about
