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.
The effects of Coca Cola consumption in the human body

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 „.
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.
