MANY of us love the fizzy taste of our favourite soft drink but one pharmacist is taking aim at Coca-Cola, telling how it affects the body up to an hour after it is consumed. 

Niraj Naik has outlined the health issues on his blog Truth Theory and the findings are alarming.

The First 10 Minutes: You consume 10 teaspoons of sugar (100 per cent of your recommended daily intake). It is actually that sweet that your body should vomit but
phosphoric acid cuts the flavour allowing you to keep it down.

20 Minutes: Your blood sugar spikes giving you an insulin burst. Your liver responds by turning sugar into fat.

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 centres of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works.

>60 Minutes: The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. The buzz dies down and you’ll start to have a sugar crash.

Dr Naik said he started investigating Coke after being puzzled why people on a strict low fat diet were gaining weight.

“Fructose is the form of high fructose corn syrup is found in pretty much all processed foods such as ready meals, fast foods, sweets and fizzy drinks and most people are totally unaware of its danger,” he wrote on his blog. “Many fruits also contain fructose, but nature has provided the antidote, as these fruits are also packed with fibre which prevents your body from absorbing too much of it.

“There are 1.6 billion servings of Coke sold each day worldwide!!” he wrote. “If you care about your heart, health and mind then please remember this article next time you reach for that bottle of Coke!”

Coca Cola is one of the world's premier poisons for the human body, yet it is one of the more (if not most) popular bottled drink.

In Australia the government has mandated that cigarette companies label their product as carcinogenic ( for liability purposes), but no such mandate for Coca Cola Amatil products.

If you drink this product you deserve the sickness it brings to your body.
