What Happens To Your Body Within An Hour Of Drinking A Cola?
¤ 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 its hands on into fat. (There’s plenty of that at this particular moment).
¤ 40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, 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 Cola. 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.
So there you have it, an avalanche of destruction in a single can. Imagine drinking this day after day, week after week. Stick to water, real juice from fresh squeezed fruit, and tea without sweetener.
Cancer-causing chemical found in Coca-Cola, Pepsi...
High levels of a chemical that causes tumors in animals were found in Coca-Cola Co. and PepsiCo. Inc. sodas, according to a consumer advocacy group
pressing U.S. regulators to ban a color additive.
The chemical 4- methylimidazole was found in Coca-Cola, Pepsi Cola, Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi and is part of caramel coloring used in the beverages, according to a study released today by the Center for Science in the Public Interest.
The group petitioned the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in February to ban the ammonia-sulfite coloring, which is found in most colas.
