The world’s most popular soda can always be found in the poorest areas, including in developing countries such as Africa or the Philippines.
But despite its popularity, Coke’s acid levels are so high that they rival what you would expect from battery acid. This is why it is more effective than many toxic house hold cleaners.
One of the ingredients found in Coke, known as phosphoric acid, is literally transported in galvanized steel containers because it eats through normal transport containers. Unsurprisingly, phosphoric acid also weakens the body’s storage capacity for calcium.
People who consume soda’s such as Coke have a 48% increase in heart attack and risk of stroke. A recently published study in the journal Respirology reveals that “soft drink consumption is associated with lung and breathing disorders including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)”.
