how to buy yourself diabetes for only $0.50 a day

You know drinking soda is bad for you.   Perhaps you and I talking a bit about  WHY will be just the trigger you need to kick the habit—or get your kids to do so.   Have  a kid you care about  read this.   According to the Nutrition Research Center (Oct. 2007), here’s what you can expect in the first hour after drinking one can of Coke:

Within 10 minutes, 10 teaspoons of sugar, 100 percent of your recommended daily intake, shoots to your bloodstream.   (Keep in mind that nowhere is refined and acidic corn syrup or sugar actually “recommended.”   Good sugars don’t come from a can of Coke.)   Phosphoric acid cuts the flavor—otherwise, you’d throw up from the overwhelming sweetness.   That same phosphoric acid is draining calcium from your bones and teeth.

Within 20 minutes, your blood sugar goes through the roof, and your liver responds to the resulting insulin burst by turning massive amounts of sugar into fat.

Within 40 minutes, the enormous caffeine stimulation causes your pupils to dilate, your blood pressure to rise, and your liver to dump more sugar into your bloodstream. Dopamine stimulates the pleasure centers of your brain (just like street drugs do).

After 60 minutes, you start to crash.   You’ll feel shaky and desperately crave more sugar and caffeine.   Run to the machine for another can of Coke, and do it again daily until you develop diabetes.   Shouldn’t take too long.   Then you’ll have daily blood testing and insulin shots to look forward to, plus a shortened life expectancy and a host of very unpleasant  risks, like  limb amputation, for instance.

    Absolutely fascinating–thanks for posting this! Any chance you know the process when the soda is diet? (I shudder at the thought)

    No, but let me say THIS about THAT:

    Aspartame has been linked to more complaints to the FDA than all other food additives combined! And keep in mind that the FDA has approved more than 4,000 food-additive chemicals. It’s linked to all kinds of neuro phenomena. I used to drink an occasional Diet Coke, years ago. Not often–maybe 3 cans a month. I would occasionally get really scary migraines: my arm would go numb, my vision blurry, and I could not speak—the pain was so intense. I’d have to take a drug and climb in bed and be comatose for hours. It happened on vacation with my baby once, and it happened while I was teaching once.

    My gut and my research told me that NUTRASWEET (aspartame) was the problem. Got off it and my migraines never came back.
