Within 10 minutes of drinking one 330ml can of regular coke, 10 teaspoons of sugar will rush into your internal system, which is more than the recommended allowance for one day.
The Renegade Pharmacist, a blog run by pharmacist Niraj Naik includes a seven-step breakdown of the drink’s supposed effects.
The sugar hit is so intense, he says, that you would normally vomit, but for the phosphoric acid which inside the coke ‘cuts the flavour’ so you can keep the liquid down.
In the next 40 minutes or so your pupils will dilate, your blood sugar will spike and you’ll get a huge caffeine hit.
After 60 minutes and the ‘rave’ inside of you is complete, you will crash, need to urinate, and become irritable. You’ll probably want another coke.
These facts on Coke may shock you, but it is a good indication as to why we shouldn’t be drinking it!
