Wow!  I was not aware of these bodily functions taking place simply from drinking a can of Coca-Cola.


Other than having to take a leak there are other things that happen. Haven't had a Coke in many years and won't have it in my house.

 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.

I know it can mentally make me more alert, but I also know it takes 16 hours for that alertness to clear my system.


Yes, excellent info! Since long, they were known to contain too much sugar, like the other soft drinks, and they would not help when you were thirsty. Tea with lemon and a bit sugar or honey, as well as unsweetened herbal tea, or clean tap water, are ideal in case of hot weather and intensive physical activities.

You also experience withdrawal and need rehab


I often drink Coca Cola. Thank you!


I heard that putting a shot of rum in your Coke prevents all these bad effects.  :angel:
