20 Practical Uses for Coca Cola – Proof That Coke Does Not Belong In The Human Body


Update: Coke responds and cleverly tries to bring other safe products into the spotlight in order to suggest their product is just as safe. http://www.coca-cola.co.uk/faq/rumours/can-coca-cola-be-used-as-a-household-cleaner.html

Coke is the most valuable brand in history, and “Coca-Cola” is the world’s second-most recognized word after “hello.” However, the beverage itself is an absolute poison to the human metabolism. Coke is very acidic, it’s only one point higher on the pH scale than battery acid. Consequently it can clean surfaces equivalent to and often better than many toxic household cleaners.

It’s cheaper and easier to buy Coke in some third world countries than it is to access clean water. Coke uses “public relations propaganda” to convince consumers and entire nations that it is an “environmental company” when really it is linked to pollution, water shortages, and disease.

People who consume soft drinks such as Coke have a 48% increase in heart attack and stroke risk, compared to people who did not drink the sodas at all or did not drink them every day. A study published in the journal Respirology reveals that soft drink consumption is also associated with lung and breathing disorders including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

The carbonation in Coke causes calcium loss in the bones through a 3-stage process:

  1. The carbonation irritates the stomach.
  2. The stomach “cures” the irritation the only way it knows how. It adds the only antacid at its disposal: calcium. It gets this from the blood.
  3. The blood, now low on calcium, replenishes its supply from the bones. If it did not do this, muscular and brain function would be severely impaired.

But, the story doesn’t end there. Another problem with most Coke is it also contain phosphoric acid (not the same as the carbonation, which is carbon dioxide mixed with the water). Phosphoric acid also causes a draw-down on the body’s store of calcium.

So Coke softens your bones (actually, makes them weak and brittle) in 3 ways:

  1. Carbonation reduces the calcium in the bones.
  2. Phosphoric acid reduces the calcium in the bones.
  3. The beverage replaces a calcium-containing alternative, such as milk or water. Milk and water are not excellent calcium sources, but they are sources.

Esophageal cancer was very rare two generations ago — now, it’s common. The basic mechanism works as follows:

  1. Mechanical damage to cells is a huge risk factor for cancer. It’s why asbestos particles, for example, cause lung cancer.
  2. All soft drinks cause acid reflux (stomach acid rising up past the esophageal valve). This is more pronounced when the body is horizontal (as in sleeping), but the sheer volume of Coke and soft drinks consumed in the USA means the acid reflux is well past the danger point. Any time you ingest a gassy drink, you are going to get belching–and acid into the esophagus. How much is too much? The research doesn’t say where the limit is–it only shows that most of us are far, far, far past it.
  3. tomach acid dissolves tissue — that’s its purpose. The stomach lining does not extend into the esophagus, so the lower esophagus gets damaged by acid far more frequently in soft drink users than in non soft drink users. This results in a radical increase in cell mutations, along with a far higher level of free radicals.

20 Practical Uses For Coke

Coke acts as an acidic cleaner. The amount of acid in soda is enough to wear away at the enamel of your teeth, making them more susceptible to decay. In tests done on the acidity levels of soda, certain ones were found to have PH levels as low as 2.5. To put that into perspective, consider that battery acid has a pH of 1 and pure water has a pH of 7.

To prove Coke does not belong in the human body, here are 20 practical ways you can use Coke as a domestic cleaner:

  1. Removes grease stains from clothing and fabric
  2. Removes rust; methods include using fabric dipped in Coke, a sponge or even aluminum foil. Also loosens rusty bolts
  3. Removes blood stains from clothing and fabric.
  4. Cleans oil stains from a garage floor; let the stain soak, hose off.
  5. Kills slugs and snails; the acids kills them.
  6. Cleans burnt pans; let the pan soak in the Coke, then rinse.
  7. Descales a kettle (same method as with burnt pans)
  8. Cleans car battery terminals by pouring a small amount of Coke over each one.
  9. Cleans your engine; Coke distributors have been using this technique for decades.
  10. Makes pennies shine; soaking old pennies in Coke will remove the tarnish.
  11. Cleans tile grout; pour onto kitchen floor, leave for a few minutes, wipe up.
  12. Dissolves a tooth; Use a sealed container…takes a while but it does work.
  13. Removes gum from hair; dip into a small bowl of Coke, leave a few minutes. Gum will wipe off.
  14. Removes stains from vitreous china.
  15. Got a dirty pool? Adding two 2-liter bottles of Coke clears up rust.
  16. You can remove (or fade) dye from hair by pouring diet Coke over it.
  17. Remove marker stains from carpet. Applying Coke, scrubbing and then clean with soapy water will remove marker stains.
  18. Cleans a toilet; pour around bowl, leave for a while, flush clean.
  19. Coke and aluminum foil will bring Chrome to a high shine.
  20. Strips paint off metal furniture. Soak a towel in Coke and lay it on the paint surface.

Now can you imagine what is does to your stomach lining? 

Who needs the ‘household and cleaning’ section at the hardware store when we have Coke.

Have you ever wondered what exactly Coca Cola is?

After 10 minutes: The sugar contained in a glass of Cola can cause a devastating “strike” on the body. The cause being the phosphoric acid which inhibits the action of sugar.

After 20 minutes: A leap in insulin levels in bloodstream occurs.

After 40 minutes: Ingestion of caffeine is finally completed. The eye’s pupils are expanding. Blood pressure rises because the liver disposes more sugar into the bloodstream. The adenosine receptors become blocked thereby preventing drowsiness.

After 45 minutes: The body raises production of the dopamine hormone, which stimulates the brain pleasure center. Similar to the reaction Heroin creates.

After 1 hour: Phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in the gastrointestinal tract, which supercharges metabolism. The release of calcium through urine takes place.

After more than 1 hour: Diuretic effects of the drink enters in “the game”. The calcium, magnesium and zinc are removed out of the body, which are a part of our bones, as well as sodium. At this time we can become irritable or subdued. The whole quantity of water, contained in a coca cola, is removed through urination.

When having a cold bottle of Coke and enjoying its undeniable freshness are we aware of what chemical “cocktail” we are putting into our bodies? The active ingredient in Coca-Cola is orthophosphoric acid. Due to its high acidity, cisterns used for transporting the chemical have to be equipped with special reservoirs designed for highly corrosive materials.

Let’s have a look at “the anatomy” of one of the most advertised products of “Coca-Cola Co.” – Coca-Cola Light without caffeine. This drink contains Aqua Carbonated, E150D, E952, E951, E338, E330, Aromas, E211.

Aqua Carbonated – this is sparkling water. It stirs gastric secretion, increases the acidity of the gastric juice and provokes flatulency. Filtered tap water is what is primarily used.

E150D – this is food coloring obtained through the processing of sugar at specified temperatures, with or without addition of chemical reagents. In the case of coca-cola, ammonium sulfate is added.

E952 – Sodium Cyclamate is a sugar substitute. Cyclamate is a synthetic chemical, has a sweet taste, which is 200 times sweeter than sugar, and is used as an artificial sweetener. In 1969 it was banned by FDA, since it, as well as saccharin and aspartame, caused cancer in rats.

E950 – Acesulfame Potassium. 200 times sweeter than sugar, containing methyl-ether. It aggravates the operation of the cardiovascular system. Likewise, it contains asparaginic acid which can also cause an excitant effect on our nervous system and in time it can lead to addiction. Acesulfame is badly dissolved and is not recommended for use by children and pregnant women.

E951 – Aspartame. A sugar substitute for diabetics and is chemically unstable at elevated temperatures it breaks down into methanol and phenylalanine. Methanol is very dangerous as only 5-10ml can cause destruction of the optic nerve and irreversible blindness. In warm soft drinks, aspartame transforms into formaldehyde which is a very strong carcinogen. Symptoms of aspartame poisoning include: unconsciousness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, palpitation, weight gain, irritability, anxiety, memory loss, blurry vision, fainting, joint pains, depression, infertility, hearing loss and more. Aspartame can also provoke the following diseases: brain tumors, MS (Multiple Sclerosis), epilepsy, Graves’ disease, chronic fatigue, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, mental deficiency and tuberculosis. Later, this substance was initially illegal due to its dangers but was again made legal in a suspicious manner.

E338 – Orthophosphoric Acid. This can cause irritation of the skin and eyes. It is used for production of phosphoric acid salts of ammonia, sodium, calcium, aluminum and also in organic synthesis for the production of charcoal and film tapes. It is also used in the production of refractory materials, ceramics, glass, fertilizers, synthetic detergents, medicine, metalworking, as well as in the textile and oil industries. It is known that orthophosphoric acid interferes with the absorption of calcium and iron into the body which can cause weakening of bones and osteoporosis. Other side effects are thirst and skin rashes.

E330 – Citric Acid. It is widely used in pharmaceutical and food industries. Salts of citric acid (citrates) are used in the food industry as acids, preservatives, stabilizers, and in the medical fields – for preserving blood.

Aromas – unknown aromatic additives

E211 – Sodium Benzoate. It is used in production of some food products for anti-bacterial and anti-fungal purposes. It is often found in jams, fruit juices and fruit yogurts. It’s not recommended for use by asthmatics and people who are sensitive to aspirin. A study conducted by Peter Piper at the Sheffield University in Britain, found that this compound causes significant damage to DNA. According to Peter, sodium benzoate which is an active component in preservatives, doesn’t destroy DNA, but deactivates it. This can lead to cirrhosis and degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease.

Coca-Cola is undeniably a very useful product. The key is to use it for purposes that do not include drinking! Here is a video about Coca-Cola!

  2. my emails

    This is 99% hype. Vinegar is also a strong acid as is the HCL in your Stomach!

    If you have to explain the difference between Carbonation and acid, then your audience is either unconcerned with learning the facts involved or just plain Stupid.

    • Audience, I will field this one for you. Who’s calling who stupid? The audience here is duped almost 100% of the time when it comes to research and studies. Those who provide research and studies are flat out incapable of providing or creating cures and or preventions therefore any and all studies and research are to be taking with a grain of salt.

      The audience here is no more gullible than the leading researchers from Harvard and Berkley.

      What the audience needs here is HONESTY. And then and only then can they start to become wise and informed, not through Google but through logic. Sure the article here is extremely flawed but so is every word of any “cancer” research or study.

      The entire industry of healthcare relies SOLELY on hypothesis.
      noun \hī-ˈpä-thə-səs\
      : an idea or theory that is not proven but that leads to further study or discussion

      Every word printed in regards to healthcare is designed to be discussed, NOT TO PRODUCE CURES OR PREVENTIONS.

      Because the commercial industry of healthcare, constantly repeats their HYPOTHESIS, consumer begin to view them as facts, they execute it to be that way. The industry of medicine and healthcare have no facts, they do not want facts, they want people to accept HYPOTHESIS as fact all on their own. In that sense the audience is a bit gullible but the healthcare has the resources to invest whatever it takes to manipulate the consumer and they succeed.

      Every word from today’s healthcare is designed to be discussed not to prevent or cure disease. Researchers are trained to fail, trained to NEVER ever move past HYPOTHESIS.


      my emails, when you can cure or prevent disease, or be immune to disease yourself, you can stand up and judge. Until then, you might want to tone it down. This article as all articles, studies and other hypothesis are for discussion ONLY. The “theory” that “cancer” is a mutated cell is strictly for discussion, it’s not a fact at all.

  4. Will Royal Crown, Pepsi and other cola products do the same? What about the cola nut itself? What will it do?

  5. Caffeine in the body does not increase blood pressure.. It does the opposite effect. It allows MORE blood to flow. That’s why a lot of endurance athletes use it for their races and training.

    • Hmmm, how does it make “more blood to flow”? Well we sure can’t rely on commercial science to answer that. So what could make “more blood flow”. What could make “MORE” blood to flow? More water in the blood would make more blood volume so more blood could flow and naturally more water or volume causes what???? Higher blood pressure is what happens when blood volume goes up so if caffeine makes more blood flow it stands to reason blood pressure would go up, so you are corrected timpar3.

      Now, is raised blood pressure due to higher blood flow harmful, probably not. There certainly is no reason to turn to commercial science for those kinds of questions and answers. Their job is to create industry for profit not help people. The article here despite CE’s good intentions has no merit but neither to 98% of the comments either. Too many people relying on commercial science for hire for their source for knowledge, BIG MISTAKE.

      • common sense

        How about you stop bringing your childish insults of science and other people into this and just comment on the subject in question. Think we’ve established you’re fooling no one, if anything you’re turning them against your cause.

        • I’m pretty happy with the results CS. Things all work out in time. I’m creating a new found demand for real science. Just to keep the record straight I only bash hypothesized science. I bash it because people aren’t even aware that hypothesized science, otherwise known here as commercial science isn’t even real science, it’s just paid for marketing.

          People need to be aware that there is real science with real results and then there is commercial hypothesized science used strictly for business and marketing with no intent to improve the human situation outside of financial of course.

          Also, I’m not against people making a living off of hypothesis. I don’t begrudge them a livelihood. I’m simply against the misconception the industry promotes.

          I’m sure if today’s commercial science was worth it’s salt we wouldn’t be rubbing each other the wrong way. Maybe your beef shouldn’t be with me but with Harvard and Berkeley instead. Get them to step up and make a difference, or at least show some interest in seeing them make a difference. Why not raise the bar a little? Why hate me for pointing out that a mouse couldn’t get under the bar the way things are..

          TODAY’S SCIENCE in ONE word hy·poth·e·sis
          noun \hī-ˈpä-thə-səs\

          : an idea or theory that is not proven but that leads to further study or discussion

          CE is a great host but every article here is based SOLELY on hy·poth·e·sis and because of such, today’s science is only good for a good debate and stacking cash.


          I threw in my information page on immunity because a lot of the readers here are not nearly so loyal to hy·poth·e·sis. A lot of people might be tiring of the debate. I came on strong with timpar3 because his or her comments came on strong too and though timpar3 may be upset with my comment he or she got the point. What he or she does with it is up to him or her.

        • Exactly right Common Sense

    • Dulaney Glen

      HOWEVER- with caffeine on board one’s blood pressure swings are more volatile i.e. an alarm stimulus will send the systolic reading higher than it would if uncaffeinatedl.
