The effect of #CocaCola in 7 steps in 1 hour!
Watch out, you may be hurt! ;) Na zdrowie! Graphic supplied by TheRenegadePharmacist.com. An average can of soda contain 3 tablespoons of sugar and 4 tablespoons if in a 12-ounce-bottle. First 10 Minutes : 10 teaspoon of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don't immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down. In 20 Minutes : Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your live responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There's plenty of that at this particular moment.) In 40 Minutes : Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your liver dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness. In 45 Minutes : Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way. In 60 Minutes : The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium, and zinc in your lower intestine providing a further boost in metabolism. This is a compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium. After 60 Minutes : The caffeine's diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you'll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium, and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water. As the rave inside of you died down you'll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You've also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in theCoke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like having the ability to hydrate your system of build strong bones and teeth. #USA #Europe #Europa #infographic #socialmedia #zdrowie #health #food #soda #napoje #cukier #sugar #pressure #blood #cofeine #kofeina #uzaleznienia #uzaleznienie 
What A Coke Does To Your Body In 1 Hour
I'll be the first to admit that I love Coca Cola. But it's absolutely horrible for us. A very detailed infographic supplied by TheRenegadePharmacist.com has officially proven again how bad Coke is for your body (WE KNOW). The American CDC has said that 25% of Americans drink soda on a regular basis which is a hefty reason why obesity has run rampant. Sugar is the main culprit since an average can of soda can contain 3 tablespoons of sugar and 4 tablespoons if in a 12-ounce-bottle. Coke is one of the most popular soft drinks in the United States with a massive marketing empire so there will never be a day where we won't see it somewhere. But there comes a time where you need to take a moment and see what you're putting into your body. Let's take a look : All it takes is ONE Coke : First 10 Minutes : 10 teaspoon of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don't immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down. In 20 Minutes : Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your live responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There's plenty of that at this particular moment.) In 40 Minutes : Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your liver dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness. In 45 Minutes : Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way. In 60 Minutes : The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium, and zinc in your lower intestine providing a further boost in metabolism. This is a compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium. After 60 Minutes : The caffeine's diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you'll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium, and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water. As the rave inside of you died down you'll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You've also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in theCoke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like having the ability to hydrate your system of build strong bones and teeth. Why you should care? - Coke weakens bones and teeth. - Increases your chance for getting diabetes. - It slows your metabolism, especially long term. - Aspartame in the soda leads to disease and organ irritation. - Coke has negative affects on fertility. - It leads to weight gain. - Can worsen asthma or increase risk for heart disease. - Cancer, Osteoporosis, and Kidney issues are common in people who drink soda. - It's expensive to continually buy it. - Diet sodas are a scam and false advertising. All soda is bad for you. - No nutritional value. - Raised cholesterol and specifically increased belly fat. Do I need to say more? Coke or soda for that matter is never a good idea. (But don't worry, I still love it.)
Health Agency Releases 'Anti Coca-Cola' Ad, But Are They Making Assumptions?
Americans have been drinking Coca-Cola for well over a century. We've been enjoying it during baseball games, in our pizza parlors, at the movies, and even in mixed cocktails for many generations. But as obesity rates - and the illnesses associated - hit a record high, many health advocates have been taking proactive strides to create change. In comes 'Change The Tune', a public service advertisement funded by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), a national watchdog group. Adapted from Coca-Cola's iconic 'Hilltop' campaign, the ad focuses on the detrimental effects of drinking sugary beverages like Coca-Cola. But instead of singing that they'd 'like to buy the world a Coke', real-life Americans with a number of different diet-induced medical conditions sing a cautionary tale in a very dark manner, complete with a 'Truth' campaign style shot of a Diabetes 2 patient injecting insulin into his stomach. While I understand the obesity crisis in this country is something we must take control over, does anyone else feel like this ad is making a lot of sweeping generalizations about people who have these kinds of conditions? Granted, nutrition is a HUGE factor, but specifically calling out soda and making implications that soda alone caused these people to acquire their medical conditions is a little much. To conclude that sugary beverages are the only reason people acquire Diabetes 2, hypertension, tooth decay, or obesity (they LITERALLY write 'fighting soda-related obesity') is to suspend everything we have learned about human genetics. For starters, Diabetes 2 has been stigmatized as a 'fat person' condition, when in all actuality, it is a highly genetic condition that affects Native Americans, African Americans, and Hispanics at a proven and disproportionate rate. While diet can play a factor, of course, it is certainly not always the case for everyone. The same argument could be made for obesity. Now, you can easily gain weight if you take more calories in than you expel, but research has also shown that metabolism ranges greatly from person to person. And surely, when someone is overweight, it would be pretty impossible to pinpoint something as specific as soda as the cause. (That's like those people who omit baby carrots from their diet because they read somewhere it causes cancer. Many, many factors usually go into why a person's diagnosed with cancer, and I don't think indulging in a 3-ounce bag of baby carrots is going to kill you.) Similar arguments regarding genetics can also be made for hypertension and people prone to tooth decay. (No, seriously, those teeth can fall out from sweets AND genetics). Ultimately, I'm not saying that it isn't possible for unhealthy diet habits to cause certain medical conditions. I'm just saying that pinpointing one specific food and saying "This thing specifically caused this guy's high blood pressure problem!" is like the nutritional equivalent of witch-hunting when the reality is no one really knows any of this for certain. And I know I can't be the only one who feels like this commercial is only fueling the stigma we have against what is popularly perceived as 'fat people conditions'. Moral of the story: Throw out the Coke. But throw out the perpetuation of stereotypes too.
