Coca cola is so common in today’s world that after the word ‘hello’, it is the second most recognized word in the world. The brand is considered as the most valuable in the whole world today. In some parts of the world, buying coca cola is easier than buying clean, pure drinking water.
By now, it is well known that this drink is harmful to our body. It has many ingredients which damage our health and causes toxicity. This toxicity is due to the fact that this drink is highly acidic and its pH is just one point higher than that of a battery acid. This can have serious implications on our long term health.
The pH of battery acid is 1, where as that of coke is found to be 2.5. A pH between 1-7 is considered acidic, where as between 7-14 is alkaline. A pH of 7 is neutral. Pure water has a neutral pH of 7.
This acidic content of coke can increase the risk of diseases such as heart attack or stroke by 48%. It can also cause COPD and asthma.
Coca cola does not really have a good name in the industry with respect to social and environmental ethics. This can also be due to water shortage and pollution related problems.
