Sure, you may already know about Coca-Cola Co and the terrible things they do but do you know just how toxic their products really are? When we drink their soda we are ingesting a host of dangerous chemicals.
Sure, Coca-Cola is one of the most recognized brands in the world and is considered an icon here in the US these soft drinks are making us terribly unhealthy. Drinking just one extra can of soda a day can add as much as fifteen pounds to your weight over the course of a single year and increase your diabetes risks by about eighty-five percent! Their crimes against humanity also do not go unnoticed as they have also polluted groundwater in other countries and created water shortages altogether. I rarely see anything good about the soda itself or the company.
Once you really understand what you are ingesting it is much easier to see why you should stop. Below you will find a list of dangerous chemicals found in Coca-Cola’s Coke soda and just what they can do to you. Please pay close attention.
