the disadvantage of drinking Coca-Cola or Pepsi

the disadvantage of drinking Coca-Cola or Pepsi:

1) Caffeine, Sugar, and Aspartame: These products are invariably present within sweetened soft drinks. Coca-Cola and Pepsi have been under lawsuits in some of the developed countries against using Aspartame which causes several diseases. Children should be strictly restricted from consuming products with Aspartame. Furthermore, caffeine and sugar are very addictive leading to another set of diseases like diabetes and a life-long habit of inducing caffeine in the body.

2) Kidney Failures: Sweet sugar is not the reason for a failing kidney but artificial sweeteners are. Hence consuming Diet versions of Coca-Cola or Pepsi has proved to produce more impairment than the sweet versions.

3) Metabolism Level Decreases: A glass of warm water can speed up your metabolic rate but may taste awful after a workout session. A can of Coke can surely be tasty but it decreases the metabolism and helps in destroying the fat-burning enzymes in no time. Thus a can of either Diet Coke or simple Coca-Cola after a rigorous workout or busy day is strictly not advisable.

4) Obesity and Diabetes: Obesity was never a major problem when Coca-Cola or similar products were not introduced. But with the advent of these products, a major portion of the population is turning obese which includes children and teenagers.

5) Teeth and Bone Damage: The pH level of Coke or Pepsi is 3.2 which is quite high. This pH level decides the acidic nature of a liquid. Hence these beverages are acidic and can dissolve bones and enamels very quickly.

6) Reproduction problems: A research has shown that the cans of Coke or Pepsi are coated with such chemicals that may lead to reproduction problems with regular consumption.
