Coca-Cola is widely known as the most valuable brand around the world, and in some places it’s even easier and cheaper to buy a Coke than clean water.
Of course that the brand attempts to promote itself as a socially and environmentally conscious company, but the truth is that it’s deeply associated with pollution and water shortages.
Its acidity is only one point higher than the pH of a battery acid, so this questioned many about the toxicity of Coke.
According to one study sponsored by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, it was discovered that people who drank at least one Coke a day had a 44% higher risk of metabolic syndrome development.
Another study showed that people who consume one or more Cokes per day, had a 48% higher risk of stroke or heart attack than those who don’t drink Coke every day, or at all.
The consumption of soft sodas has also been associated with respiratory disorders like asthma and COPD.
