Do you know nearly 30% of Nigerians drink soda on a regular basis, according to data collected by the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, and both experts say that’s a problem. Experts say that the addiction is mainly due to all of the sugar: A can of soda can contains about 3 or more tablespoons of sugar. When you take this soft drinks the sugar actually floods your body system, this leads to a quick rise in blood sugar level.

Another important fact is that many consumers don’t know the real content of what they drink. While a lot of manufacturers try to hide this ingredients, it is important we pay attention to labels and be more curious about what goes into our favourite soft drinks during the production stage.
[size=18pt]Below what happens after you drink a Coke:[/size]

Within the first 10 minutes: Ten teaspoons of sugar (100 percent of your recommended daily intake) hits your system.
In 20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes and causes a burst of insulin. Your liver responds by turning the sugar it comes into contact with into fat.

In 40 minutes: Your body has absorbed the soda’s caffeine. Your pupils may dilate, your blood pressure rises, and your liver “dumps more sugar into your bloodstream.” The adenosine receptors in your brain are blocked to prevent you from feeling drowsy.
In 45 minutes: Your body increases production of the pleasure neurotransmitter dopamine.

In 60 minutes: The soda’s phosphoric acid binds with calcium, magnesium, and zinc in your lower intestine to give you a further boost in metabolism. This is intensified by the high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners that also cause you to urinate out calcium.

After 60 minutes: The caffeine’s diuretic effect makes you have to pee. When you do, you’ll pass on the bonded calcium, magnesium, and zinc that were headed to your bones, as well as sodium, electrolytes, and water.

Eventually a sugar crash begins, and you may become irritable and sluggish. You have now urinated out all of the water that was in the Coke, along with the nutrients that the phosphoric acid bonded to in your body that would have hydrated you or gone on to build strong bones and teeth.

Read this guys...

A 2012 Harvard University study found that sugary drinks increased a person’s risk of chronic heart disease (CHD).
Some participants who drank the most soda were 20 percent more likely to have a heart attack, the researchers discovered. Another study, published in 2011, found that sugary beverages raises a person’s blood pressure, and it increases the more you drink. Even cutting back by one soda per day can decrease your blood pressure and improve your heart health.

Interestingly in Nigeria, You and I know soda's not exactly good for you—but at the same time, it can be hard to resist. Its sweet taste, pleasant fizz, and energizing jolt often seems like just what you need to wash down your dinner, get you through an afternoon slump, or quench your thirst at the movies. The truth be told- STOP eating with soft drink by your side. You are gradually killing your body system and filling it with sugar.

But the more soda you consume (regular or diet), the more hazardous your habit can become. And whether you're a six-pack-a-day drinker or an occasional soft-drink sipper, cutting back can likely have benefits for your weight and your overall health. Here's why you should be drinking less, plus tips on how to make the transition easier.

Thanks for reading!

Many people reach for a Diet Coke or a soft drink in the drowsy after-lunch hours at work, hoping to get a caffeine and sugar boost. It may help you focus temporarily, but in the long-term drinking a lot of soda can have a negative effect on your brain function and thinking processes. One study found that long-term consumption of sugar could lead to impaired learning, memory, and behavioral plasticity.

Nice post. What about the sugar free coke?

My dear friend, they all contain sugar. In a recent video- the CEO of coca-cola was interviewed and asked how many cubes of sugar is in 1 bottle of coke - he said 9. when asked about the diet coke- he said a little bit lesser. How do they enlighten the public? The man said they will come up with a info. It is marketing gingle. They are after profit that's why hey spend much to bit any competitor and keep their product relevant.

The best is fluid. Long life!
