A large number of products in today’s modern society are processed, or contain various harmful chemicals, dyes, and preservatives, which can be a huge problem for our bodies, as they are not designed to digest such complex compounds.
When we consume junk foods, soda, and other processed treats, our body has a hard time and strains itself in order to digest the goods. For example, if a normal salad is digested in just 2 hours, a hamburger can take up to three days and leaves residues which could not be consumed completely.
But enough about junk food, let’s turn our attention to soda. We are all aware of the facts showing that the famous soda brand Coca-Cola, is extremely harmful, as its composition is equivalent to more than 30 tablespoons of sugar per container, which is an extremely harmful and scary for those who consume it on regular basis.
By drinking this beverage, large quantities of sugar and glucose enter our body, which can lead to problems and health conditions such as obesity, heart failure, arthritis, hypertension, artery blockages and more.
Some of the effects of consuming Coca-Cola are:
- 10-15 minutes: You receive all the sugar you need for the whole day, and this impacts the body in a big way
- 20 minutes: The liver finishes converting the sugar into fat
- 40 minutes: Glucose enters the blood and increases blood pressure, causing our pupils to dilate
- 45 minutes: our brain starts producing dopamine and our heart rate accelerates
These effects can easily lead to a cardiac arrest afterward, which is why health experts recommend the consumption of such beverages.
