Drug II by vrupatel Drug II by vrupatel
Coca Cola is a good example of one of many carbonated soft drinks that is distributed in more than two hundred countries. Its original intention was essentially patent medicine when it was invented by John Pemberton in late 19th century. Coca Cola was essentially a concentrate made from Coca leaf (cocaine) and kola nuts (caffeine), that was then distributed to be carbonated and redistributed. The incorporation of cola was removed in 1903, but it still contains the coca flavoring without the Cocaine. Coca Cola contains 46 mg of caffeine per 12 fluid oz.

The main ingredients of Coca Cola today are carbonated water, Sugar (sucrose or high-fructose corn syrup), Caffeine, Phosphoric Acid v. caramel (E150D), and undisclosed natural flavoring. A can of coke is 12 oz and contains 39 grams of carbs, 50 mg of sodium, 0 grams of fat, 0 grams of potassium and 140 calories.

Furthermore certain cases have been reported that the sugar replacement used in diet coke, if used in concentrated amounts can cause blindness due to methanol production in the body. Diet coke has also been known cause for cancer in the body.

I have never really been a soda fan... I used to drink it sporadically, but I stopped for about 3 or 4 months, and when I drank one again it was absolutely disgusting. I think we've just become so accustomed to this fake food that we don't realize how bad it tastes. That's why I stay organic and farm fresh as often as possible. Better for you and man it tastes better too.

I also found out that there is only one country in the world that Coca-Cola is not the top selling soft-drink. In Scotland the top seller is Barr's Irn-Bru (which totally ROCKS!)

Amen, the only thing that will replace a sugar will be another sugar. Artificial sugars just don't do the job and have tons of chemical side effects. Thank you for the flattery hahah :D

Hahaha funny you should mention that, im working on an idea and will end up photographing it before christmas. Anyway, the christmas decorations go up way before halloween decorations in america, especially in shopping malls. Its kind of surreal really. The maple hasn't even turned orange yellow and fallen to the ground before they put up fake snow on the trees.

Ha ha! Only in moderation :D
However, it is good for removing car oil stains off the driveway.
And it's great for an unsettled stomach, which I experienced while
on a flight to Australia...I didn't feel well and the air line stewardess
had me drink some coke. That sure works!
I do like an occasion pop drink though =P

Yeah with upset stomach you can drink any carbonated drink that will return your stomach to homeostasis, could be carbonated water, sprite or any other drink with dissolved CO2 haha.
