    Should we Drink Coke and Pepsi ?

    Friends, here's what I got in the email recently. FYI and comments

    Have a look at the wrapper on a Coca-Cola bottle and in the ingredients label you will find Phosphoric Acid in it. Minute quantities of Ethylene Glycol are also used (which is acknowledged in the soft drink world for making it really “chill"). This is popularly known as ‘anti-freeze’ which prevents water from freezing at 0’C and
    instead makes it freeze at –4’C or –5’C, with minute quantities. This chemical is a known slow poison in the caliber of arsenic. So, if you manage to drink about 4 litters of Coke within an hour or so, you can die.

    Guess what's the pH for soft drinks, e.g.
    Coke? pH 3.4! This acidity is strong enough to dissolve teeth and bones! Our human body stops building bones at the age of about 30. Someone put a broken tooth in a bottle of
    Pepsi and in 10 days it DISSOLVED! Can you
    believe it? Teeth and bones are the only human parts that stay intact for years after death. Imagine what the drink must be doing to your soft intestines and stomach lining!

    Two months back, there was a competition at
    Delhi University, “Who could drink the most Coke?" The winner drank 8 bottles and fainted on the spot. Reason: Too much CO2 in the blood. Thereafter, the principal banned all soft drinks from the college canteen!. While this might have been an extreme measure, the results do provide some food for

    Did you know that soft drinks use chemicals in them that cause immense harm to you. Soft drinks do not have any nutrition value (in terms of vitamins & minerals). It is high in sugar content, carbonic acid, chemicals i.e.colourings etc. Read along and give up
    these dangerous things. Be natural; have flavored milks, tender coconuts, buttermilk, lassi and plain water instead of these "soft" drinks.

    Some like to take cold soft drinks after each
    meal. Do you know what's the impact? Our body needs an optimum temperature of 37 degrees Celsius for digestive enzyme functioning. The temperature of cold soft drinks is way below 37’C degrees or even close to 0’C. This will dilute the enzymes & stress the digestive system. The food taken will not be digested. In fact it will be fermented! The fermented food produces gases, decays and becomes toxin, gets absorbed by the intestine, circulates in the blood stream and is carried to the whole body. Hence toxin is cumulated in other parts of the body, developing into various diseases.

    Think before you drink Coke/Pepsi (or any soft drink) again. Have you ever thought what you drink when you drink an aerated drink? You gulp down carbon dioxide, when nobody in the world would advise you to drink CO2.


    I am shocked!! Is it true?



      I think I am back to Rau(Cane sugar juice)

      Dont tell me thats gonna make me affected by Sugar


        I sent the email to many many friends... 80% of them, wrote back, saying they are off Coke, Pepsi and other aerated drinks (Fanta, Teem, Sprite, etc), now that they know the side effects.

        I guess this is like cigerette smoking. In 50s and 60s people didn't realize its soooo bad, now that they are dying, they start suing tobacco companies. Its possible that the same also happen to these Big soft drink companies. I hate to be guinea pig in this GIANT experiment

        Life is too short to waste
        Enjoy... and be Happy

                intresting statements Pristine.........gonna check up on this for sure

                You see things, and you say 'Why?' But I dream things that never were and I say 'Why not?'


                  hmmmm quite unbelieveable!!!
                  i usually drink 8/10 Pepsis in a week. even sometimes i consume 1 or 1-1/2 litre in just half an hour.... and i have no such problem!!! I got very healthy teeth and bones.. in fact im quite fit and kinda tough... thats quite strange...isn it?


                    Nice stories there guys.

                    I have heard that Pepsi has Pepsin (?) in it which is haram so you shouldn't be drinking it anyway. The drinks in middleeast and Pakistan have different ingredients.

                    I don't know about Coke

                    Personally I don't drink either
