The effects of Coca Cola Consumption in Human Body

                                                   History of the Coca Cola drink

Coca Cola is a carbonated drink made by Coca Cola. Originally considered an authorized medicine, the drink was invented by John Stith Pemberton and later bought by businessman Asa Griggs Candler.

John Stith Pemberton, after graduating medical studies went in a civil war. After the war, he was diagnosed with a serious serious life-threatening wound. Being addicted to morphine, John Stith Pemberton found a way to fight his addiction by creating Coca Cola.

In 1885, Pemberton began selling a drink called „Pemberton’s French Wine”, the beverage being made of cocaine, kola nuts and damiana (a shrub with aphrodisiac and anti-anxiety properties).

Coca Cola was originally marketed as a remedy for many illnesses, one of which included impotence. Pemberton has given this drink properties such as: healing headaches, anxiety, depression, indigestion and addiction. Cocaine was removed from the drink only in 1914. At that time, a glass of Coca Cola cost was 5 cents.

The name of the drink refers to two of its basic ingredients: cocaine leaves and round nuts (a coffee source). Today, Coca Cola uses instead of fresh coca leaves, used leaves – the cocaine extracts, cocaine from them being present at the molecular level.

Kola Nuts – is a source of flavor and coffee. However, the ingredients made public are: carbonated water, sugar, phosphoric acid, caramel dyes, natural flavor and caffeine. As we all know, the Coca Cola drink recipe remains a secret today, although recipes have been identified, but none is the original one.

Wine writer Meredith made a study about Coca Cola. According to this study, a 330 ml dose of Coca Cola contains so much sugar that the human body should vomit, but phosphoric acid „cuts off”, helping the body keep the fluid inside.

After 40 minutes of drinking, blood sugar has increased, pupils are dilated and blood pressure is also rising. Thus, the body begins to produce more dopamine, a neurotransmitter that controls nerve centers of brain pleasure, basically in the same way that heroin works.

In an hour you will feel the need to urinate, starting to have a carbohydrate crisis in the body, which will make you irritated and faint. Also, with eliminated urine and water present in Coca Cola, along with important nutrients in the body.

The Infograf’s creator, former pharmacist Niraj Nirak, says that absolutely all caffeine beverages act this way, not just Coca Cola.

                                         What doctors say about Coca-Cola …

Cola does not bring any benefit to the body, being energetic and poor nutritional – it doesen’t contain vitamin, mineral, it’s empty, says Dr. Corina Zugravu, representative of the National Institute of Public Health.

The thing confirmed by Dr. Madalina Olimid, the family doctor, – cola is enriched in the CO2 manufacturing process and is considered acidic with a PH acid that damages the stomach. These drinks are forbidden in those with gastritis and gastro esophageal reflux, hernia hiatata, says the doctor.

Carbonated beverages of the cola type have the main defect that fat, fattening leads to countless and serious complications. „Many are sweetened not with sugar, but with honey fructose fructose, which is more obese and more damaging to the heart and the heart.” „Weight gain is a risk factor for other diseases.” Recent research has shown that these beverages are a factor risk and high blood pressure. Not to mention the syndrome of metabolism, diabetes, etc … „says the nutritionist.

Dr. Corina Zugravu warns about the negative effects of caffeine in cola – insomnia, tremor, tachycardia. She says she is one of the cola victims of caffeine, although she can drink two hard coffees without problems, but we do not sleep for hours on cola.

Last but not least, Cola is a demineralising effect on teeth due to PH acid. „Age is not a predisposing factor, but perhaps only by the preferences of the patient. Generally, young people are more likely to drink more,” explains Dr Simona Sevcenco, a dentist. The effect of Coca Cola on teeth can be compared to the effect of some actions. The carbonated beverages have a pH around 3, and the gastric juice is pH 0.9-1 „.

                                                          Personal conclusions

In conclusion, Coca Cola is not recommended for consumption, neither long nor short. Personally, I have a little enjoyable history of Coca Cola consumption, because I am anemic, which means I perceive the „side effects” of the drink much more intense.

Trembling, imbalance, dizziness, nausea, agitation and lack of concentration are just some of the effects that Coca Cola exerts on the body.

There are people who can not live without the consumption of carbonated drinks, such as Coca Cola, Pepsi and others, but at what risk? Why would I want to hurt myself, willingly and consciously? Just because we have them and we have the option to choose, that does not mean we have to choose wrongly.

During the studies in the faculty, The Dean often told us at classes: All the foods are good for the body as long as we know how to do dose them. A small amount of a particular product, well thought out and administered at the right time can do wonders.

So in closing the article I conclude that although Coca Cola is a very publicized and commercialized drink, that does not mean we have to do abuse. Ideally we would like to focus on the beneficial drinks for the body such as water, natural fruit juices and teas.

Dean Ornish said that bad health is not because we have it but because we already have something that makes it bad. Health is not something to get, it’s something you already own if it isn’t bothered by something – let’s not let that thing be Coca-Cola.


Efectele consumului de Coca Cola in organismul uman

Istoricul bauturii Coca Cola

Coca Cola este o bautura carbonatata, fabricata de compania Coca Cola. Original, gandita ca un medicament autorizat, bautura a fost inventata de catre John Stith Pemberton si cumparata ulterior de catre omul de afaceri Asa Griggs Candler.

John Stith Pemberton, dupa absolvirea studiilor medicale a servit in razboiul civil. In urma razboiului, acesta s-a ales cu rani grave ce ii puneau viata in pericol. Fiind dependent de morfina, John Stith Pemberton a gasit o modalitate de a-si combate dependenta creand bautura Coca Cola.

In 1885, Pemberton a inceput sa comercializeze o bautura denumita: „Vinul francez cu coca al lui Pemberton”, bautura fiind constituita din cocaina, nuci kola si damiana (un arbust cu proprietati afrodisiace si anti-anxietate).

Coca Cola a fost comercializata initial ca un remediu pentru multe afectiuni, una dintre ele incluzand impotenta. Pemberton a conferit acestei bauturi proprietati precum: vindecarea durerilor de cap, a anxietatii, a depresiei, a indigestiei si a dependentei.

Cocaina a fost indepartata din bautura abia in anul 1914. Pe atunci, un pahar de Coca Cola costa 5 centi.

Denumirea bauturii se refera la doua dintre ingredientele sale de baza: frunzele de cocaina si nuci kola (o sursa de cofeina). Astazi Coca Cola utilizeaza in loc de frunzele de cocaina proaspete, frunze folosite – resturile de la procesul de extractie a cocainei, urmele de cocaina de pe acestea fiind prezente la nivel molecular.

Nucile de Kola – reprezinta o sursa de savoare si cofeina. Totusi, ingredientele facute publice sunt: apa carbogazoasa, zahar, acid fosforic, coloranti de caramel, arome naturale si cofeina.

Dupa cum bine stim, reteta bauturii Coca Cola ramane si astazi un secret, desi s-au mai identificat retete, insa nici una fiind cea originala.

Efectele consumului de Coca Cola in organismul uman

Scriitoarea Wine Meredith a realizat un studiu despre Coca Cola. Conform acestui studiu, o doza de 330 ml de Coca Cola contine atat de mult zahar incat organismul uman ar trebui sa vomite, insa acidul fosforic „taie aroma”, ajutand corpul sa pastreze lichidul inauntru.

Dupa 40 de minute de la consumul bauturii, zaharul din sange a crescut, pupilele sunt dilatate iar tensiunea arteriala, de asemenea, a crescut. Astfel, corpul incepe sa produca mai multa dopamina, un neurotransmitator ce controleaza centrii nervosi de placere ai creierului, practic, in acelasi mod in care actioneaza si heroina.

Intr-o ora vei simti nevoia sa urinezi, incepand sa ai o criza de glucide in organism, ceea ce te va face iritat si lesinat. De asemenea, prin urina elimini si apa prezenta in Coca Cola, impreuna cu nutrientii importanti din organism.

Creatorul Infografului, fostul farmacist Niraj Nirak, afirma ca in acest mod actioneaza absolut toate bauturile racoritoare cu cofeina, nu doar Coca Cola.

Ce afirma doctorii despre Coca Cola…

Cola nu aduce niciun beneficiu organismului, fiind densa energetic si saraca nutritional – nu are vitamine, minerale, este “goala”, spune dr. Corina Zugravu, reprezentanta Institutului National de Sanatate Publica.

Lucru confirmat si de  dr. Madalina Olimid, medic de familie, pacientilor sai – cola este imbogatita in procesul de fabricatie cu CO2 si este considerata bautura acidulata cu un PH acid, care daunează stomacului. Aceste băuturi sunt interzise la cei cu gastrită şi reflux gastro esofagian, hernie hiatata, spune medicul.

Bauturile carbogazoase de tip cola au principalul defect ca ingrasa, ingrasatul duce la complicaţii nenumarate si grave. “Multe sunt îndulcite nu cu zahar, ci cu sirop de fructoza din porumb, care este si mai obezogen si mai daunător pentru vase si inima. Ingrasatul este in sine un factor de risc pentru alte boli. Cercetări recente au aratat ca aceste bauturi sunt un factor de risc si pentru hipertensiunea arteriala. Ca sa nu mai zic de sindromul metabolic, diabetul zaharat, etc…”, spune nutritionistul.

Dr. Corina Zugravu avertizeaza asupra efectelor adverse de la cofeina din cola – insomnie, tremurături, tahicardie. Aceasta spune ca ea insasi se numara printre victimele cofeinei din cola, desi poate bea două cafele tari fara probleme, insa de la cola nu mai doarme ore in sir.

Nu în ultimul rand, Cola are un efect demineralizant asupra dintilor din cauza PH-ului acid. “Varsta nu este un factor predispozant, decat, poate, doar prin preferintele de consum ale pacientior. In general, tinerii sunt mai predispusi deoarece ei consuma mai des acest gen de bauturi”, explica dr. Simona Sevcenco, medic stomatolog. Efectul Coca Cola asupra dintilor poate fi comparat cu efectul unor acizi. Bauturile carbogazoase au PH-ul in jurul valorii de 3, iar sucul gastric are PH-ul 0.9-1″.

Concluzii personale

In concluzie, bautura Coca Cola nu este recomandata pentru consum, nici indelungat si nici de scurta durata. Personal, am o istorie putin placuta cu consumul de Coca Cola, din cauza faptului ca sunt anemica, ceea ce inseamna ca percep „efectele secundare” ale bauturii mult mai intens.

Tremuraturi, dezechilibru, ameteli, stari de greata, agitatie si lipsa de concentrare sunt doar cateva dintre efectele pe care le resimt la nivelul organismului in urma consumului de Coca Cola.

Sunt persoane care nu pot trai fara consumul de bauturi carbogazoase, precum Coca Cola, Pepsi si altele, insa cu ce risc? De ce as vrea sa imi fac rau mie insumi, in mod voit si constient? Doar pentru ca le avem la dispozitie si avem optiunea de a alege, asta nu inseamna ca trebuie sa alegem eronat.

In decursul studiilor din timpul facultatii, doamna decan ne spunea adesea la orele de curs: Toate alimentele sunt bune pentru organism atata timp cat stim sa dozam. O cantitate mica dintr-un anumit produs, bine gandita si administrata la momentul potrivit poate face minuni.

Asadar, in inchiderea articolului concluzionez ca desi Coca Cola este o bautura foarte mediatizata si comercializata asta nu inseamna ca trebuie sa facem abuz. Ideal ar fi sa ne axam pe bauturile benefice pentru organism precum: apa, sucuri naturale de fructe si ceaiuri.

Dean Ornish spunea ca sanatatea proasta nu e din cauza ca o avem ci din cauza ca deja avem ceva ce o face proasta. Sanatatea nu e ceva ce trebuie sa obtii, e ceva de detii deja daca nu o deranjeaza altceva – sa nu lasam acel altceva sa fie Coca Cola.
