A recent news item in one of the UK's popular health magazines reports curing your addiction to soda, stating “You need to run two miles to burn off that bottle of Coke.”
OK, so far so good, this is what you might expect from a leading health magazine, it re-enforces its affront on coca cola by citing from The American journal of public health, “in the study, teens were less likely to buy a sugar-sweetened beverage—soda and fruit drinks—if its physical activity equivalent was displayed than if it’s calories or percentage daily values were posted.”
Now you are hooked, intrigued, and you have come this far so you interested in more solid information, what else does the AJPH have to say about coke, sugar content perhaps? Colourings? Additives? – The Bait has been set – next comes the switch.
“We can’t control what’s printed on your soda nutrition label, but we can do the math for you. Your 20-ounce bottle of soda is roughly the same as:”
Washing dishes or grocery shopping for 76 minutes
Unicycling or cleaning gutters for 35 minutes
Jazzercising or chopping wood for 29 minutes
Shoveling or skiing for 25 minutes
Boxing or fast jump-roping for 15 minutes.
So does doing all of the above cure you of addiction? No!
Do the above mislead you to thinking that drinking a cola is as healthy as doing the above? Yes.
So to balance it out a little and gets some perspective on cola, here are a few facts that they do not want you to know!
A 330ml can of soda contains 35 grams of sugar, which is approximately equivalent to 6 teaspoons of sugar. It can lead up to 75 unpleasant metabolic changes. It causes obesity and Opioid Dependence. It is also classed as a drug.
The Colour Caramel E150d, it is important to firstly understand that this is a colour and not a flavour, though the manufactures could use any other colour that is not associated with food but chooses not too presumably since when reading the label we readily accept Caramel as a flavour. The correct name for this laboratory made carcinogen is called Sulfite Ammonia Caramel. It is not Caramel as we have come to understand it, it is formulated by reacting sugar with both Ammonium and Sulfite compounds, the two by products of 2-methylimidazole and 4-methylimidazole which are also found in some foods and tobacco smoke prohibit full development of organs, prohibits healthy cell growth, Inflammation of the epididymis (where the sperm is stored), tissue inflammation and studies showed that carcinogenic activity of 2-methylimidazole (2MI) was demonstrated in male and female rats and mice.
Phosphoric acid is used as a cleaner in various construction industries for the purpose of removing mineral deposits, cementitious smears, and hard water stains, soak an old penny in some cola with Phosphoric acid for 30 minutes and see her gleam! Phosphoric acid has an extraordinarily high PH value of around 2.8, and will rot the enamel from your teeth! You need approximately 16 glasses of water to get back to being roughly ph neutral.
Caffeine is also added to the drink, you cannot taste caffeine in cola but it serves two purposes. Firstly it is a diuretic, it encourages fluid loss through Urine, then you become dehydrated, since you are now hooked on sugar, (and soon caffeine) you reach for another cola!
