Sodas like Coke are definitely not healthy. They’re loaded with high fructose corn syrup which is an especially strong driver of obesity, heart disease and diabetes. It is an especially dangerous sweetener because unlike glucose and other forms of sugar, it is the only one directly metabolized by the liver and which is almost immediately converted to fat.
Add to that it has phosphoric acid (all sodas do) which breaks down bone tissue! And if you were thinking drinking sugar-free Coke is the answer – think again. Those artificial sweeteners have their own laundry list of very dangerous side effects.
I found this infographic about what happens to your body one hour after drinking a can of coke absolutely alarming – especially since so many children drink soda! I believe it speaks for itself and says more than I could about why you should avoid these types of beverages.
How does this make you feel about drinking Coke?
