Dr West Conner, a self-proclaimed „Renegade Pharmacist“ , states that one of the worst things a person can do is drink a can of Coke. He made a timeline of what happens to a person’s body after ingesting this soft drink.
In the first 10 minutes after drinking it, you loaded your body full of sugar. A can of coke has 10 teaspoons of sugar, which amounts to 100 percent of the recommended daily usage.
After 20 minutes your body discharges insulin, while your liver start working and turns as much sugar into fat as it can.
After 40 minutes you absorbed the caffeine found in the soft drink, while you liver is powering through the sugar.
After 45 minutes you feel a release of dopamine which cause the feeling of pleasure in your body.
After 60 minutes two things happen. First, any discharge of calcium through the urine is blocked by all the simulated sweeteners and the crazy amount of sugar in your body. And two, the phosphate acid from the Coke ties with calcium, magnesium and zinc to your digestive system, thereby boosting digestion.
After this, you will feel the urge to defecate, and will then discharge all the zinc, calcium and magnesium which is supposed to strengthen your bones. Also, you lose a great amount of sodium, water and electrolytes.
At 65 minutes, you feel the so called „sugar crash“. You will feel lazy and irritable and will have lost a great deal of water.
In sum, your bones miss out on the needed vitamins and minerals that keep them strong and healthy, you feel depressed and lazy and there is a chance for you to end up wearing an insulin pump. All this, just from a can of harmless Coke.
