It is safe to call coke a bleaching agent. Coca Cola is the most recognized trademark in the world, and it is the world’s second-most famous word after “Hi". However, the drink itself is a real poison to the human metabolism. The level of acidity of coke is almost the same as the acidity level of a battery acid.
In addition to that, Coke can clean dirty surfaces almost the same to and often much more better than the most used toxic household cleaners.
Clean water is more expensive than a bottle of
Coca Cola in many countries. Coke has made a lot of efforts in advertising to get people consumer blindly this beverage that is very destructive for our body.
Those who consume sodas such as Coca Cola
have a 48% increase in heart attack and stroke
risk, compared to people who do 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
But, the story doesn’t 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 body’s 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
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, it’s common. The basic mechanism
works as follows:
1. Mechanical damage to cells is a huge risk
factor for cancer. It’s 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 belching–and acid into the esophagus. How much is too much? The research doesn’t say where the limit is–it only shows that most of us are far, far, far past it.
3. Stomach acid dissolves tissue — that’s 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.
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
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
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
8. Cleans car battery terminals by pouring a small
