Coca Cola is bad for our body and we don't care - but we should!

What’s that? Coke is bad for us? What else is new?

We’ll have a can of coke, go to the gym and it’ll be fine. Wrong!

A health writer has shocked the internet by showing us just how much the damage is done to your body in just one measly hour.

Coca Cola

Wade Meredith has evidenced the fact that one can of Coca Cola is very, very bad for our insides. But, it’s our “insides”, thus we can’t see it, so do we really care?

Coca Cola, McDonalds and all the other poisonous popular food and drinks would have gone out of business a long time ago if we did.

Before you’ve even got to the end of Wade Meredith’s article, she posts links to similarly scary articles warning of the dangers of caffeine, ice cream, and what happens to your body if you stop smoking. Which begs the question, is this just another article to scare us? Another health article that will tell us nearly everything could lead to cancer, obesity or diabetes?

We know very well that the things we eat aren’t particularly good for us and until now, that’s really repeatedly all we’ve been told.

However, now we know the details of what exactly is going on inside after downing a fizzy drink do we start to pay attention?

The Telegraph quotes the former UK pharmacist and creator of the infographic Niraj Naik casually slipping in whilst explaining what the brain does when we drink coke that it works just like heroin does, “by the way” he says.

Niraj Naik also says that this pattern “applies to pretty much most caffeinated soft drinks, not just coke.”

Remember that Super-Size Me documentary where Morgan Spurlock ate McDonalds three times a day for 30 days to see what would happen? Did McDonalds go out of business after that came out? No.

Not even at the end of the documentary when it was harshly asked “who do you want see go first, you or them?” The bottom line is, no matter how harshly these warnings are put out to us we still can’t part with our favourite junk.

A Coca-Cola spokesperson told FEMAIL: “People have enjoyed drinking a Coca-Cola for more than 129 years. Like all soft drinks, it is perfectly safe to drink and can be enjoyed as part of a balanced diet and lifestyle. We provide a choice of colas to meet the needs of different consumers, including options that are lower sugar, sugar free and caffeine free.”

This in particular brings about the question that many articles have hovered over, that companies care more for their own personal financial profit than they do telling their costumers the truth. Ironically, this big Coca-Cola issue has come a couple days after a Leicestershire Tesco’s announced as of September they’re axing sugary drinks to try to tackle childhood obesity. But why September? Surely, it can be done sooner?

This latest announcement by Tesco proves perhaps it is not all about financial gain (but is about that a little) for companies, and now Tesco have certainly pushed the villain of child obesity blame away from them and on to other supermarkets.

Adam Leyland, editor of The Grocer was quoted in the Leicester Mercury saying that the decision to axe certain brands was a “sensible idea but an idea that will leave the supermarket with several difficulties”. 

And it will, there is no way the likes of ASDA and ALDI will follow in Tesco’s footsteps after they see how many Tesco’s costumers start shopping with them.

Adam Leyland also wrote; “Will Tesco really go to war with the likes of Coca Cola? The UK’s number one brand is a favourite with kids. If it axes red Coke what will the impact be on its sales?”

It doesn’t take a genius to answer that.
