So, is it so bad to drink Coke? What does it cause?
If you leave a tooth in a glass of coke overnight, it will dissolve!!
Not entierly, only 50% or so, i have tested it but so what?
A tooth may dissolve in Cola but we don't go to sleep with a mouth full of soda do we?
Sugar and caffiene but i drink lots of sodas anyway.
If you want to know i drink pepsi one which tastes good and has 1 calorie and no sugar.
Well it depends...
I often drink Coca Cola when eating pizza. It helps cut the grease of the pizza.
By the way, Coca Cola is supposed to be really good at cleaning grease off motors.
It can give you a sugar spike, it is bad for your teeth, and can make you fat. That's about it.
Just FYI: I asked my dentist if brushing my teeth after drinking Coke would help and she almost stabbed me with her tools....
Apparently if you brush up to 30 mins after drinking it, the Coke acts as an abrasive on your teeth and the brushing helps grind it in.
Nice! I'm going to have to try that.
Ah yes, the only negative thing i know about cola is the FAT thing, but i drink a glas nearly everyday day for 3 years and im not fat, do not have any problems with my teeths or anything else.
If you drink Coke in reasonable amounts, and have a good dental hygiene, you shouldn't have any problems.
But remember, there's that wonderful FREE drink called water that totally rocks.
I used to drink a lot of coke. After hearing possible health effects and having felt stomachache a couple of times, i completely replaced it with other drinks (usually beer)
Yeah, beer is sooooo much better for your health !
Water is free in France?
Wow.... Do they also give electricity and gas free too?
Yeah, technically it's not free. But tap water is pretty cheap, though.
Close - soda weakens your teeth for up to 90 minutes after you drink it - which means that if you brush your teeth in this time, you actually rub off some of the enamel. Which means you're permanently ruining your teeth. You're better off letting your enamel reharded for at least 90 minutes before brushing.
I really think that should be common knowledge, because it's not obvious, and it matters.
As well, drinking fructose drinks is hard on your liver and speeds the approach of adult onset diabetes (even if you're not becoming fat). It basically speeds your death and makes it more likely that you'll be fat when you're older (it's not the calories, it's the insulin exposure)
Finally, caffeine might start being bad for your heart in your mid thirties.
Diet coke is a different ball of wax because the Recommended Daily Allowance of Aspartame is not mentioned on the can, and because Aspartame is potentially linked with cancer, even at low doses.
Its potentially linked with cancer in lab animals. However i dont know of any case of a person getting cancer from diet sodas yet.
