Update: Coke responds and cleverly tries to bring other safe products into the spotlight in

order to suggest their product is just as safe. http://www.coca-cola.co.uk/faq/rumours/can-

Coke is the most valuable brand in history, and Coca-Cola is the worlds second-most
recognized word after hello. However, the beverage itself is an absolute poison to the
human metabolism. Coke is very acidic, its only one point higher on the pH scale than
battery acid. Consequently it can clean surfaces equivalent to and often better than many
toxic household cleaners.
Its cheaper and easier to buy Coke in some third world countries than it is to access clean
water. Coke uses public relations propaganda to convince consumers and entire nations that
it is an environmental company when really it is linked to pollution, water shortages, and
disease.
People who consume soft drinks such as Coke have a 48% increase in heart attack and stroke
risk, compared to people who did not drink the sodas at all or did not drink them every day. A
study published in the journal Respirology reveals that soft drink consumption is
also associated with lung and breathing disorders including asthma and chronic obstructive
pulmonary disease (COPD).
The carbonation in Coke causes calcium loss in the bones through a 3-stage process:
1. The carbonation irritates the stomach.
2. The stomach cures the irritation the only way it knows how. It adds the only antacid
at its disposal: calcium. It gets this from the blood.
3. The blood, now low on calcium, replenishes its supply from the bones. If it did not do
this, muscular and brain function would be severely impaired.
But, the story doesnt end there. Another problem with most Coke is it also contain
phosphoric acid (not the same as the carbonation, which is carbon dioxide mixed with the
water). Phosphoric acid also causes a draw-down on the bodys store of calcium.
So Coke softens your bones (actually, makes them weak and brittle) in 3 ways:
1. Carbonation reduces the calcium in the bones.
2. Phosphoric acid reduces the calcium in the bones.
3. The beverage replaces a calcium-containing alternative, such as milk or water. Milk
and water are not excellent calcium sources, but they are sources.
Esophageal cancer was very rare two generations ago now, its common. The basic
mechanism works as follows:
1. Mechanical damage to cells is a huge risk factor for cancer. Its why asbestos
particles, for example, cause lung cancer.
2. All soft drinks cause acid reflux (stomach acid rising up past the esophageal valve).
This is more pronounced when the body is horizontal (as in sleeping), but the sheer
volume of Coke and soft drinks consumed in the USA means the acid reflux is well
past the danger point. Any time you ingest a gassy drink, you are going to get
belchingand acid into the esophagus. How much is too much? The research doesnt
say where the limit isit only shows that most of us are far, far, far past it.
3. tomach acid dissolves tissue thats its purpose. The stomach lining does not extend
into the esophagus, so the lower esophagus gets damaged by acid far more frequently
in soft drink users than in non soft drink users. This results in a radical increase in cell
mutations, along with a far higher level of free radicals.
20 Practical Uses For Coke
Coke acts as an acidic cleaner. The amount of acid in soda is enough to wear away at the
enamel of your teeth, making them more susceptible to decay. In tests done on the acidity
levels of soda, certain ones were found to have PH levels as low as 2.5. To put that into
perspective, consider that battery acid has a pH of 1 and pure water has a pH of 7.
To prove Coke does not belong in the human body, here are 20 practical ways you can
use Coke as a domestic cleaner:
1. Removes grease stains from clothing and fabric
2. Removes rust; methods include using fabric dipped in Coke, a sponge or even
aluminum foil. Also loosens rusty bolts
3. Removes blood stains from clothing and fabric.
4. Cleans oil stains from a garage floor; let the stain soak, hose off.
5. Kills slugs and snails; the acids kills them.
6. Cleans burnt pans; let the pan soak in the Coke, then rinse.
7. Descales a kettle (same method as with burnt pans)
8. Cleans car battery terminals by pouring a small amount of Coke over each one.
9. Cleans your engine; Coke distributors have been using this technique for decades.
10. Makes pennies shine; soaking old pennies in Coke will remove the tarnish.
11. Cleans tile grout; pour onto kitchen floor, leave for a few minutes, wipe up.
12. Dissolves a tooth; Use a sealed containertakes a while but it does work.
13. Removes gum from hair; dip into a small bowl of Coke, leave a few minutes. Gum
will wipe off.
14. Removes stains from vitreous china.
15. Got a dirty pool? Adding two 2-liter bottles of Coke clears up rust.
16. You can remove (or fade) dye from hair by pouring diet Coke over it.
17. Remove marker stains from carpet. Applying Coke, scrubbing and then clean with
soapy water will remove marker stains.
18. Cleans a toilet; pour around bowl, leave for a while, flush clean.
19. Coke and aluminum foil will bring Chrome to a high shine.
20. Strips paint off metal furniture. Soak a towel in Coke and lay it on the paint surface.
Now can you imagine what is does to your stomach lining?
Who needs the household and cleaning section at the hardware store when we have Coke.
Have you ever wondered what exactly Coca Cola is?
After 10 minutes: The sugar contained in a glass of Cola can cause a devastating strike on
the body. The cause being the phosphoric acid which inhibits the action of sugar.
After 20 minutes: A leap in insulin levels in bloodstream occurs.
After 40 minutes: Ingestion of caffeine is finally completed. The eyes pupils are expanding.
Blood pressure rises because the liver disposes more sugar into the bloodstream. The
adenosine receptors become blocked thereby preventing drowsiness.
After 45 minutes: The body raises production of the dopamine hormone, which stimulates
the brain pleasure center. Similar to the reaction Heroin creates.
After 1 hour: Phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in the gastrointestinal
tract, which supercharges metabolism. The release of calcium through urine takes place.
After more than 1 hour: Diuretic effects of the drink enters in the game. The calcium,
magnesium and zinc are removed out of the body, which are a part of our bones, as well as
sodium. At this time we can become irritable or subdued. The whole quantity of water,
contained in a coca cola, is removed through urination.
When having a cold bottle of Coke and enjoying its undeniable freshness are we aware of
what chemical cocktail we are putting into our bodies? The active ingredient in Coca-Cola
is orthophosphoric acid. Due to its high acidity, cisterns used for transporting the chemical
have to be equipped with special reservoirs designed for highly corrosive materials.
Lets have a look at the anatomy of one of the most advertised products of Coca-Cola
Co. Coca-Cola Light without caffeine. This drink contains Aqua Carbonated, E150D,
E952, E951, E338, E330, Aromas, E211.
Aqua Carbonated this is sparkling water. It stirs gastric secretion, increases the acidity of
the gastric juice and provokes flatulency. Filtered tap water is what is primarily used.
E150D this is food coloring obtained through the processing of sugar at specified
temperatures, with or without addition of chemical reagents. In the case of coca-cola,
ammonium sulfate is added.
E952 Sodium Cyclamate is a sugar substitute. Cyclamate is a synthetic chemical, has a
sweet taste, which is 200 times sweeter than sugar, and is used as an artificial sweetener. In
1969 it was banned by FDA, since it, as well as saccharin and aspartame, caused cancer in
rats.
E950 Acesulfame Potassium. 200 times sweeter than sugar, containing methyl-ether. It
aggravates the operation of the cardiovascular system. Likewise, it contains asparaginic acid
which can also cause an excitant effect on our nervous system and in time it can lead to
addiction. Acesulfame is badly dissolved and is not recommended for use by children and
pregnant women.
E951 Aspartame. A sugar substitute for diabetics and is chemically unstable at elevated
temperatures it breaks down into methanol and phenylalanine. Methanol is very dangerous as
only 5-10ml can cause destruction of the optic nerve and irreversible blindness. In warm soft
drinks, aspartame transforms into formaldehyde which is a very strong carcinogen.
Symptoms of aspartame poisoning include: unconsciousness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness,
nausea, palpitation, weight gain, irritability, anxiety, memory loss, blurry vision, fainting,
joint pains, depression, infertility, hearing loss and more. Aspartame can also provoke the
following diseases: brain tumors, MS (Multiple Sclerosis), epilepsy, Graves disease, chronic
fatigue, Alzheimers, diabetes, mental deficiency and tuberculosis. Later, this substance was
initially illegal due to its dangers but was again made legal in a suspicious manner.
E338 Orthophosphoric Acid. This can cause irritation of the skin and eyes. It is used for
production of phosphoric acid salts of ammonia, sodium, calcium, aluminum and also in
organic synthesis for the production of charcoal and film tapes. It is also used in the
production of refractory materials, ceramics, glass, fertilizers, synthetic detergents, medicine,
metalworking, as well as in the textile and oil industries. It is known that orthophosphoric
acid interferes with the absorption of calcium and iron into the body which can cause
weakening of bones and osteoporosis. Other side effects are thirst and skin rashes.
E330 Citric Acid. It is widely used in pharmaceutical and food industries. Salts of citric
acid (citrates) are used in the food industry as acids, preservatives, stabilizers, and in the
medical fields for preserving blood.
Aromas unknown aromatic additives
E211 Sodium Benzoate. It is used in production of some food products for anti-bacterial
and anti-fungal purposes. It is often found in jams, fruit juices and fruit yogurts. Its not
recommended for use by asthmatics and people who are sensitive to aspirin. A study
conducted by Peter Piper at the Sheffield University in Britain, found that this compound
causes significant damage to DNA. According to Peter, sodium benzoate which is an active
component in preservatives, doesnt destroy DNA, but deactivates it. This can lead to
cirrhosis and degenerative diseases like Parkinsons disease.
Coca-Cola is undeniably a very useful product. The key is to use it for purposes that do not
include drinking! Here is a video about Coca-Cola!
