Cola Drinks ~ Harmful Effects

Cola Drinks – Harmful Effects
Look at the wrapper on a Coca-Cola 1.5 litre bottle and in the ingredients you will find phosporic acid in it. Minute quantities of ethylene glycol is also used (which is acknowledged in the soft drink world for making it “really chill”). This is popularly known as anti-freeze which prevents water from freezing at 0 degree C and instead drops it by 4-5 degrees with minute quantities. This chemical is a known slow poison in the caliber of arsenic (which is popularly used to kill RATS!!!). So, if you manage to drink about 4 litres of Coke within an hour or so, you can die.
A 12 oz can contain 45.6 mg of caffeine. That amounts to about 200 mg of caffeine in a 1.5 litre bottle.
Caffeine is deliberately added to all kinds of soft drinks to make it addictive. Read along and give up these dangerous things. Be natural; have flavoured milks, tender coconuts, butter milk, lassi, and plain water instead of these cold drinks.Guess what’s the pH of soft drinks like Coke is ? Its 3.4 ! This acidity is strong enough to Dissolve Teeth and Bones ! Our human body stops building bones at the age of about 30.
Soft drinks do not have any nutrition in terms of vitamins & minerals. They are high in sugar content, carbonic acid, & chemicals as colouring agents.
Some people like to take cold soft drinks after each meal. Guess what’s the impact of such a habit ! Our body needs an optimum temperature of 37 deg.Celsius for digestive-enzyme to function. The temperature of cold soft drinks is very much below 37 deg or even close to 0 deg Celsius. This will dilute the enzymes & is stressful for the digestive system. The food ingested would not be digested properly. In fact it may undergo fermentation. The fermented food produces gases and produces toxin which get absorbed in the intestine and circulate in the blood stream and is carried to the whole body. Hence toxic substances get accumulated in various parts of the body which may help in the development of various diseases.Think before you drink Coke/Pepsi (or any soft drinks) the next time. Have you ever thought of what exactly you are taking into your system when you drink an aerated drink? You are gulping down Carbon Dioxide. Nobody in the world would advise you to drink CO2.
Two months back, there was a competition at Delhi University among the students – “Who could drink the most Coke?” The winner drank 8 bottles and fainted on the spot — too much CO2 in the blood. Thereafter, the principal banned all soft drinks from the college canteen !
Did you know that soft drinks use chemicals in them that cause immense harm to you.
Someone put a broken tooth in a bottle of Pepsi, and in 10 days it DISSOLVED ! Can you believe it? Teeth and bones are the only human parts that stay intact for years after death. Imagine what the drink must be doing to your soft intestines and stomach lining!
