Over the past couple of years, the #CocaCola company has been plagued by an enormous amount of bad press, and for good reason. Here is what happens to your body just one hour after drinking a can of #Coke, and here are 20 practical uses for coke that prove it does not belong in the human body. And we haven’t even brought up the topic of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) yet…
A couple of years ago, PepsiCo was sued by a man who claimed he had found a dead mouse in a can of Mountain Dew. Experts from the company were brought in to explain why this could not possibly be true, and their reasoning was absolutely shocking.
They stated that the #MountainDew would have dissolved the mouse, turning it into a “jelly-like substance,” if the animal had been in the can from the time of its bottling until the day this gentlemen opened it, which happened more than a year later.
This is because of the citric and phosphoric acid that’s commonly found in these drinks — and we’re not talking about the citric acid that is naturally found in fruits. An industrialized form of these acids is used instead. Coca Cola, for example, is a soft drink most often compared to battery acid, and in 2004 a well-known study found that citrus sodas like Mountain Dew erode tooth enamel at an alarming rate.
According to Scientific American, the citric acid in Mountain Dew would eat away a mouse’s bones in a similar manner as it erodes teeth, breaking down the chemical bonds that hold the tissue together by infiltrating them with positively charged particles.
Pepsi stressed that there is absolutely no way that a mouse corpse could survive for 15 months in a pool of Mountain Dew for the simple reason that this drink, just like other similar sodas, is quite corrosive. There is plenty of evidence to suggest that they can eat away teeth and bones in a matter of months, and they would, accordingly, most likely do the same to the mouse.
ABOVE excerpt is from CE and the video is from a BBC journalist showing a Coca-Cola executive just how much sugar is in their drink. There are a host of other troubling ingredients within these drink too.
Hopefully this gives you something to think about, especially if you are a busy flight attendants, who always work in high altitude that your taste buds might easily be tricked and you might think that sodas is not as sweet as you thought and so you keep sipping in one full can each time and then go for another type of energy drink. Studies have shown that the perception of saltiness and sweetness drops 30% at high altitudes. The low humidity in airline cabins also dries out the nose which decreases olfactory sensors that are essential for tasting flavour in dishes.
The easiest way to combat this? Not eating at all and just drink powdered form green juice OR structured water to rehydrate you during your long hours duty flight!
