soda chemicals 263x164 What Chemicals are Really in Coca Colas Coke Soda?Perhaps you already know that the Coca-Cola Co. has committed atrocious ground-water polluting in other countries, along with creating water shortages. You probably know as well that the company is turning providing the mass population with toxic beverage choices. After reading this quick, informative article, you will understand exactly what you are putting into your body, and this just might make it easier to break the Coke-drinking habit.

Here’s what’s really in Coca-Cola’s famous Coke soda:

  • Carbonated tap water - Whatever is in unfiltered municipal water is also in your Coke. The carbonation that is added increases gastric secretions and can make you flatulent. Here is what your tap water looks like, by the way.
  • E150D – This is a food coloring, which is made from processing sugar at certain temperatures. Ammonium sulfate is then added (also a constituent of Round Up Ready Chemicals used by Monsanto). This chemical has been known to increase asthma attacks.
  • E952 – This is a sugar substitute. It is 200 times sweeter than sugar and can cause your glycemic levels to sky-rocket. This can lead to diabetes, obesity and other diseases.
  • E950 – This is Acesulfame Potassium, and it aggravates the heart, vascular system, and nervous system. It is especially bad for children and pregnant women.
  • E951 – Aspartame – GMO product which can cause seriously negative impact on your body. Symptoms of aspartame poisoning include: unconsciousness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, palpitation, weight gain, irritability, anxiety, memory loss, blurry vision, fainting, joint pains, depression, infertility, hearing loss and more. Aspartame can also provoke the following diseases: brain tumors, MS (Multiple Sclerosis), epilepsy, Graves’ disease, chronic fatigue, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, mental deficiency and tuberculosis. Later, this substance was initially illegal due to its dangers but was again made legal in a suspicious manner.
  • E338 – Orthophosphoric Acid - This causes skin and eye irritation, and can interfere with your body’s ability to absorb calcium, causing osteoporosis.
  • E330 – Citric Acid – This is preservative that is also used in the medical field for preserving blood. In small doses it is fine, but in large doses it can eat away at your stomach and esophageal lining.
  • Aromas – Unknown aromatic additives.
  • E211 – Sodium Benzoate - According to a study completed by Peter Piper at the Sheffield University in Britain, sodium benzoate can harm DNA.

So would you really want to put this in your body on a daily, weekly, or even monthly basis? The drink is full of chemical toxins that you really don’t need. Consider drinking more purified water and freshly squeezed juices instead.

    When travelling on business I had cause to visit a U.S. owned Chemical works in England specialising in making Agricultural Phosphates from GUANO (bird shit).
    As I arrived there were three big road tankers leaving the site fully loaded. I enquired what they contained & was told it was a bi-product of the Phosphate manufacturing process, a very corrosive green liquid called Phosphoric Acid.
    I asked “Who buys it?”, thinking it may be a potential customer for our engineering products.
    “You don’t want to know” came the retort. But I insisted and eventually was told……
    COCA COLA. Seemingly the acid is THE main ingredient for the drink, which goes a long way to explain those urban myths about leaving a dirty penny in overnight & in the morning it will be sparkling, or leave a piece of beef in & it will be gone my morning.
    Needless to say, after the exposee of the amounts of sugar or aspartame on top of the acid thing, I banned it in our house.

    Don’t forget the chemicals that leach from the plastic bottles, and the aluminum in the cans tied to Alzheimer’s, and the fact that a can a day, diet or not, adds 10 pounds of body fat a year.

      I have a can a day and I am 5’6″ and 120 pounds. It’s all about balancing your diet and moderation. I’m healthy, I’m fit and there is NO aspartame in regular soda, but IS in diet, which I have never, ever drank.

    Come one! You didnt even mention the BIG one, FLUORIDE! All soda is bottled in your local major city where it uses city water. It may be filtered w a basic sediment filter so that sand or rust doesnt get into their soda, but fluoride removal requires a very expensive filter they’re not gonna invest in. DEADLY FLUORIDE IS IN EVERY SODA! Drink up.

    This product is sold all over the WORLD! I see young CHILDREN drinking it. What will it take to educate people about this toxic, chemical liquid that is so harmful to their health? The TOBACCO industry was taken on by society, so why isn’t the SODA industry?
    The term DIET and ZERO CALORIES was a marketing genius to get people addicted and to THINK it really was a ‘good’ thing…the industry will stop at nothing to deceive us.
    WE have to stop THEM
