I admit I used to be a big fan of Coke, until I found out a few of its effects on my diet & body.
Especially the joys of what High Fructose Corn Syrup, that Crack Cocaine of sugars, does to you.
-So it’s back to tea, because artificial sweeneners don’t look much better.
-If only they would start making Coke with Stevia instead of sugar, artificial sweeteners, or HFCS.
On this page via LifeHacker there are,
A few joyful items describing several effects on your body, chronologically as you drink that Coke. (-or most any soda, for that matter)
100% Daily Sugar Allowance in 1 Can,
Vomit Prevention via Phosphoric Acid,
(which when combined with Carbonic Acid is -GREAT- for your teeth),
Blood Sugar Spikes,
Wholesale Fat Storage,
VooDoo Zombifying Adenosine Receptor Blockage,
Happy Hormone Production,
Cocaine-Like Dopamine Effects,
The Eventual Pee,
–AND the inevitable post-bender soda-effect Hangover!
-Wherein you feel Drrty, so Very Very Drrty, waking up somewhere in a Montreal gutter tattoed and itching in odd places.
(*To be fair to Coke, these effects on your body happen with lots of sodas & energy-drinks, especially Mountain-Dew, which reportedly has even more caffeine; -than all of Brazil.)
