How To Wean Yourself From Coca Cola
If like me, you can take soft drinks or leave them then they won’t be a problem for you. But if you feel Coca Cola, Pepsi and other soft drinks have become a regular habit that you have to have every day. Consider this;
1 Can = 1 Stone In A Year
Regular coca cola contains nearly 10 teaspoons of sugar. If you drink just one can of coke per day, then you will be consuming about 2 1/2 pounds of sugar per month and approx. 4200 calories. Over a year it adds up to over 50,000 extra calories which will add one stone in weight to your body.

Coca Cola Acids
Cola contains caffeine citrate, citric acid and phosphoric acid. The latter can rot your teeth and your bones. If you were to put a tooth in some coke and seal it and come back some time later the tooth would have been dissolved by the coke.
Coca Cola History
Cola used to have cocaine in it as part of the original recipe. It still contains coca leaves but has the alkaloid ecgonine which can be synthesised into cocaine removed. It is the only company in the USA today to be allowed to import and process coca leaves.
In 2003 it imported enough coca leaves that could make 200 million dollars of cocaine.
This may explain how it became so popular! It was registered as a nerve tonic after it was formulated by John Stith Pemberton at a drug store in Columbus, Georgia as French Wine Coca. In 1885 re-named Coca-cola and the wine was replaced by sugar.
It was sold as a medicine that could cure a morphine addiction and supposedly numerous other diseases. Of course time has uncovered those lies and Coca Cola today cannot make such claims.
