Meet the CEO of Coca Cola. And watch him squirm his way out of some tough questions that everyone should be asking this company. It’s about time…
Watch the video to find out:
- Just HOW much sugar is in Coca-Cola (much more than you think)
- Why Coke Zero or Diet Coke could be EVEN WORSE for the body
- Why ‘low calorie’ arguments are BS
- Exactly HOW and WHY Coke’s marketing works to seduce your brain
Is Coca-Cola REALLY That Bad for You?
The short answer? Well… yes.
The real problem, unsurprisingly, lies in the obscene amount of sugar and artificial sweeteners they put in their product.
In 2015, The World Health Organisation (WHO) issued guidelines on the recommended daily intake of free sugars:
“We have solid evidence that keeping intake of free sugars to less than 10% of total energy intake reduces the risk of overweight, obesity and tooth decay,”~ Dr Francesco Branca, (Director of WHO’s Department of Nutrition for Health and Development)
In other words, for the average diet, you should not consume more than 12 teaspoons (approx 50 grams) of sugar per day. Halving that to 6 teaspoons provides additional health benefits.
But before you aim for that, you should know this – a single can of Coca-Cola contains up to 40 grams (around 10 teaspoons) of sugar.
That’s 83% of your daily recommended intake!
But What’s Wrong With a Little Sugar?
Even Mary Poppins said that a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, but ever the canny nanny, she qualified it with… JUST a spoonful!
Small amounts of sugar aren’t unhealthy, and natural sugars are an important part of the human diet.
However, the trouble starts when we consume copious quantities of sugar or artificial sweeteners in completely unnatural amounts…on a daily basis.
The reason that sugar is so harmful is because it leads to increased risk of:
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Heart Disease
- Skin Aging
- Cellular Aging
- …and more
Even though the awareness behind the health dangers of sugar is rising, hundreds of millions of people still consume multiple cans, bottles, and cups of cola and soda every single day, which begs the question…
If We Know It’s So Bad, Then Why Do We Keep Drinking It?
There’s a simple reason why…
Everything about Coca-Cola is a form of seduction.
From the fizzy sound it makes when you open the can to the way it sounds when you pour it into the glass, Coke knowingly uses cause-based and emotional marketing to hide the fact that they have successfully brainwashed billions of people to willingly put something into their bodies that’s dangerous.
But have you ever wondered why consumption is highest among young adults and teenagers?
In many cases, Coca-Cola is often directly marketed to young people because the sooner they’re hooked, the longer they unknowingly fund the company’s destructive practices.
While in other cases, it’s simply a financial issue.
Because in many parts of the world, soda is far less expensive than milk and fruit juice.
Whatever the reason is, it’s essential to realize the extent to which artificially sweetened beverages can affect your body!
