This Is What Happens Inside Your Body One Hour After Drinking A Can Of Diet Coke
After the recent incredible popularity of the infographic showing what may happen to you after one hour of drinking a can of regular coke now comes a similar infographic about diet coke.
Diet Coke was the second best-selling soft drink in the US last year, but sales have dropped since more people have become aware of its apparent health risks, according to new figures by trade publication Beverage Digest.
A Coca-Cola spokesman gave this statement as their official response to my previous article that made the headlines.
“People have enjoyed drinking a Coca-Cola for more than 129 years. Like all soft drinks, it is perfectly safe to drink and can be enjoyed as part of a balanced diet and lifestyle. We provide a choice of cola’s to meet the needs of different consumers, including options that are lower sugar, sugar-free and caffeine-free.”
But is this true?
Your taste buds get tricked.
The artificial sweetener, aspartame, tells your body to get in sugar processing mode even though there’s no actual sugar.
Research, including studies from Swithers and colleagues, shows that frequent consumption of high-intensity sweeteners may have the opposite effect by confusing the body’s natural ability to manage calories based on tasting something sweet.
You teeth are attacked.
The acid in the soda attacks your teeth relentlessly.
According to a report published in the March / April edition of General Dentistry, phosphoric acid in soda causes tooth enamel erosion, even with minimal exposure.
