Will You Still Drink....Cola or Pepsi...Be healthy

An interesting piece of information ....... Have a look at the wrapper on a Coca-Cola 1.5 litre bottle and in the ingredients label you will find phosphoric 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. So, if you manage to drink about 4 litres of Coke within an hour or so, you can die. Read along and give up these dangerous things. Be natural, have flavoured milks, tender coconuts, butter milk and plain water instead of these "soft" drinks. Guess what's the pH for soft drinks, e.g. Coke? pH 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 value (in terms of vitamins &minerals). It is high in sugar content, carbonic acid, chemicals i.e.colorings etc. Some like to take cold soft drinks after each meal. Guess what's the impact? Our body needs an optimum temperature of 37degrees Celsius for digestive enzyme functioning. The temperature of cold soft drinks is very much below 37 degrees or even close to 0 degrees Celsius. This will dilute the enzymes & stress the digestive system. The food taken will not be digested. In fact it will be fermented! The fermented food produces gases,decays and becomes toxin, and gets absorbed by the intestine, circulates in the blood stream and is carried to the whole body. Hence, toxin is cumulated in other parts of the body, developing into various diseases. Think before you drink coke/Pepsi (or any soft drink) again. Have you ever thought what you drink when you drink an aerated drink? You gulp down carbon dioxide, when nobody in the world would advise you to drink CO2. Two months back, there was a competition at Delhi university. "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! While this might have been an extreme measure, the results do provide some food for thought. 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! Do u know anymor harmful effects of soft drinks? how much of areated drinks do u have? is it a household necessity for you?

Hi nupats, You have provided a great information.I know many will get benefited by this. However I know that consuming bottled drinks are not good for health. Drinking occassionally a bottle or two will not do much damage... but it is better to avoid. Instead a fresh fruit juice prepared at home is always healthy which is my practise. Good Luck.

I quit drinking all forms of pop years ago except for the occasional treat. It takes about 32 glasses of water to counteract the effects of one can of pop! People say that it quenches their thirst but it makes me thirstier. Water is better. However, there's nothing like a Coke over ice. I'll have a can about once a month, sometimes even less often.

I don't think drink cola or pepsi is for health,in fact we only drink it for its taste.When we drink cola or pepsi,we will feel very cool and this is why we drink it,of course it is not healthy,but I like it and it's enough.

I used to drink a lot of this stuff earlier and more orless stopped it once I learnt of some of the harmful effects that you have described above. Thanks for sharing this. I was extremely useful and informative.
