What Happens To Your Body If You Drink A Coke Right Now?

by Wade Meredith on December 8th, 2006

Have you ever wondered why Coke comes with a smile? It's because it gets you high. They took the cocaine out almost a hundred years ago.

You know why? It was redundant

In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons 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

20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst.

Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat

(There's plenty of that at this particular moment)

40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream.

The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness

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

60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism.

This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium

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

60 minutes: As the rave inside of you dies 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 the Coke.

But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth

This will all be followed by a caffeine crash in the next few hours. (As little as two if you're a smoker.

) But, hey, have another Coke, it'll make you feel better

Japanese researchers have discovered that it takes 32 glasses of alkaline water with a pH of 7 to neutralize the acidic affect of one can of cola has on the body

It is my belief that there needs to be more education about hydration and the damaging affects drinking soda has on the body

How Coca-Cola Obtains Its Coca


By CLIFFORD D. MAY
Published: July 1, 1988
LEAD: For years people have speculated about the secret formula of Coca-Cola, and the ingredients its contains. The formula has been locked in a bank vault, and only a few executives can see it.

For years people have speculated about the secret formula of Coca-Cola, and the ingredients its contains. The formula has been locked in a bank vault, and only a few executives can see it.

Coca-Cola, the world's best-selling soft drink, once contained cocaine, and it is still flavored with a non-narcotic extract from the coca, the plant from which cocaine is derived.

This week, details of how Coca-Cola obtains the coca and how it is processed emerged from interviews with Government officials and scientists involved in drug research programs. They identified the Illinois-based Stepan Company as the importer and processor of the coca used in Coke. After Stepan officials acknowledged their ties to Coca-Cola, the soft drink giant confirmed those details of its operations. Coca-Cola's Comment

In a telephone interview from Coca-Cola's Atlanta headquarters, Randy Donaldson, a company spokesman, said, ''Ingredients from the coca leaf are used, but there is no cocaine in it and it is all tightly overseen by regulatory authorities.''

Emanuel Goldman, a beverage industry analyst at Montgomery Securities in San Francisco, commented: ''This is old hat to people in the industry, but might come as a surprise to others. But it also makes sense: when you have a good product you change it as little as possible.''

The first batch of Coca-Cola was brewed in 1886 by John Styth Pemberton, a pharmacist, who described the product as a ''brain tonic and intellectual beverage.'' The original recipe included coca with cocaine, but the narcotic was removed just after the turn of the century, according to company spokesmen.

Cans and bottles of Coca-Cola list only ''natural flavors,'' in addition to water, high-fructose corn syrup and/ or sucrose, caramel color, phosphoric acid and caffeine.

A Stepan laboratory in Maywood, N.J., is the nation's only legal commercial importer of coca leaves, which it obtains mainly from Peru and, to a lesser extent, Bolivia.

Besides producing the coca flavoring agent for Coca-Cola, Stepan extracts cocaine from the coca leaves, which it sells to Mallinckrodt Inc., a St. Louis pharmaceutical manufacturer that is the only company in the United States licensed to purify the product for medicinal use.

During the 1980's, imports of coca by Stepan have ranged from 56 metric tons to 588 metric tons a year, according to figures from the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Some coca cultivation is still permitted in Peru, where coca leaves have been both chewed and brewed into teas for centuries. However, the United States has been pressuring Peru and other countries to eradicate the plant and substitute other crops.

Mr. Donaldson declined to discuss whether the Reagan Administration's planned attempt to reduce South American coca growing could have an impact on the company and the formula used to make its soft drink.

He also declined to say whether the new formula Coca-Cola introduced in 1985 contained a coca derivative, noting that it was company policy not to discuss its product formulas. The Coca Eradication Plan

American officials said recently that, as part of the Administration's war on drugs, they planned to begin testing a coca eradication program in Peru within 90 days. The testing, which is contingent on final approval by the Peruvian Government, would involve the aerial spraying of powerful herbicides.

Critics of the herbicide project charge that it is politically motivated - an attempt to convey an impression of bold action in an election year - and environmentally hazardous.

Others argue that it is bound to fail. According to estimates based on D.E.A. data, enough coca to satisfy the United States demand for cocaine can be produced on 96 square miles of land - an area smaller than the borough of Queens. The climates of much of Latin America as well as Africa and Asia are suitable for the cultivation of coca, a hardy, woody shrub. How the Coca Is Acquired

chemically poisoned. There should not be any secrets in food or drinks people consume. If its a secret, than its a conspiracy that equates to being no good.
