The rate of obesity in Australia is about 70% and it is growing year by year. The health industry costs taxpayers a lot of money.
At the Royal Children’s hospital, there are lots of Coke products on sale. Here many patients, visitors and hospital staff all rely on Cola to keep them awake or cool on hot days.
Coca-cola has too much sugar and caffeine and that is not good for you. Why? Sugar is bad for your teeth and body and caffeine can keep you awake at night. Moreso too much caffeine is bad for the cortisol levels in your body leaving you higher and higher to stress. Too much of this with little or no exercise leads to the obesity problem.
Most people got diabetes from drinking too much every day
Experts say that it can cause weak bones. And for the ladies, it makes PMS worse.
If we were to use it for Ironman it would be ok as it gives the athletes a lot of energy and we need that energy. We need that sugar to keep us going. But for a regular, non-athletic person, drinking Coke all the time would be bad.
In short: please skip the Coke at the supermarket and instead drink plain water.
