Coca-Cola is a globally recognized brand that is sold in every country on the planet.
However, researchers are concerned about the acidity of this drink and think that it contains toxins that might damage our health in the long run. Coca-Cola has a pH that is only one number higher than that of battery acid.
Because the acidity level of this drink equals the acidity level of battery acid, it essentially destroys metabolism. This toxin has been related to disorders such as cardiac arrest, stroke, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and others, and it is especially harmful to young children since it interferes with a healthy diet.
Furthermore, Medical News Today discusses the serious negative consequences of excessive consumption of such a sugary drink, stating that there are approximately 10 teaspoons of added sugar in a single can of cola, which is far above the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines of no more than 6 teaspoons of added sugar daily. This explains why sugary drinks are connected to a variety of health problems.
According to the Harvard School of Public Health, persons who consume 1-2 cans of sugary beverages each day have a 26% higher chance of getting type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, Medical News Today reported on a research that claimed sugary drinks are responsible for 184,000 global fatalities per year.
Furthermore, another study with 2,400 middle-aged individuals discovered that after 4 years,
those who consumed soda on a daily basis had:
- Lower levels of good cholesterol are associated with a 32% higher risk.
- Obesity risk is raised by 31%.
- A 30 percent increase in the likelihood of having a bigger waistline
- High blood sugar and lipid levels are 25% more likely.
- High blood pressure risk is increased.
Participants in another trial who consumed soda on a regular basis were shown to have a 48 percent increased risk of stroke or heart attack.
As a result, the acidity of this drink renders it unfit for human ingestion, but it is a great cleaning agent in the home.
Here are several ways to use Coke instead of
cleaning chemicals around the house:
1. Remove rust – Dip a sponge or a cloth in it and use it to remove the rust off your household’s metal goods.
2. Remove strip paint off metal furniture by soaking a cloth or sponge in Coke and wiping the paint-covered surfaces.
3. Restore the luster of chrome things — Use Coke and aluminum foil to restore the luster of chrome objects.
4. Clean your engine – Coke will assist you in making your engine seem as good as new.
5. Clean burned pans – Pour some Coke into the pan and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing it.
6. Clean your toilet — Pour Coke all the way around the toilet bowl, then flush after a few minutes.
7. Clean the vitreous china – Coke cleans the spots on the china better than any other cleaning solution.
8. Restore Pennies’ Shine – Soak old pennies in Coke to restore their luster and eliminate corrosion.
9. Remove oil stains from your garage floor – Spray the garage floor with Coke and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing it off.
10. Blood stains — To remove blood stains from clothing or textiles, use Coke.
So it appears that we should not drink it, but we can certainly get Coke and use it as a multifunctional cleanser at home!
