Here's an article I found on my homepage.

Ever wondered why Coke comes with a smile? Itís because it gets you high. They took the cocaine out almost a hundred years ago. You know why? It was redundant.

* In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You donít immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down.
* 20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get itís hands on into fat. (Thereís plenty of that at this particular moment)
* 40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dialate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.
* 45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.
* >60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.
* >60 Minutes: The caffeineís diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that youíll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water.
* >60 minutes: As the rave inside of you dies down youíll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. Youíve also now, literally, passed away all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth.
This will all be followed by a caffeine crash in the next few hours. (As little as two if youíre a smoker.) But, hey, have another Coke, itíll make you feel better.


Whoa.. what do you guys think of this? I think it's pretty weird.
I only drink Diet, though, so I wonder if it has the same effects?
Guides, if you think it is necessary, you may close this.

I think it's overreacting. There aren't even ten teaspoons of sugar in Coke. Atleast... not pure ones. They have glucose and high fructose corn syrup.

Add on: Did you know even eating food can give you a dopamine burst? it's not that special, it's basically material happiness.

So you're saying coke(the drink) is basically the same thing as cocaine after they took the actual drug out? Uhm.. No it's not.

Cocaine makes you numb. The drink doesn't. Nor does it get you high. The drink makes you hyper-ish and even more thirsty than you were before.
