Cola is the world’s most popular soft drink, with about 1.7 billion servings of cola products consumed every day. Although the drink is popular, and seemingly refreshing, its effects on your health may be serious and in many respects non-reversible.

Here’s what happens to your body when you drink an ice cold glass of cola:

One can of cola has about 10 teaspoons of sugar, 150 calories, 30-55 milligrams of caffeine and is loaded with harmful artificial flavors and coloring. The major culprit in the cola ingredient list, however, is high-fructose corn syrup, and we’ll tell you why.

High fructose corn syrup is derived from fructose, a cheaper sweetener made from corn. The harmful thing about fructose is not only its high sugar content, which has been linked with diabetes and a number of other liver problems, but its effect on your metabolic rate, meaning the pace at which you absorb and digest food. So although you may think that a can of cola will help you better digest the food you are eating, it may actually inhibit your digestive process. Of course, this amount of sugar has other effects on your health, so it’s best to shy completely away from high fructose corn syrup!

Cola also contains phosphoric acid. Acid is, of course, the last thing that we want to be putting in our bodies because it harms the body’s ability to use calcium and can lead to a softening of teeth and bones, and eventually osteoporosis.
