Coke vs. Coke Zero


(click to enlarge)


Have you ever thought about drinking a nice Coke to cool you down in the heat of summer?

You shouldn’t go drinking a regular Coke because in a 12-ounce bottle, there are 40 grams of sugar. That is almost double the amount of sugar you should consume in one day, so a regular coke is out of the question.

You might think a coke zero is better, because in one 12-ounce coke zero there is less than 1 gram of sugar. Now you might think that a coke zero is the right choice, however you are wrong.  In fact, a coke zero contains chemicals such as phosphoric acid, an acid that can dissolve a fingernail in four days. This deadly acid will also break down your teeth.

Do you want these going into your body and perhaps hurting you? We certainly don’t think so.  Instead of drinking one of these, try diet coke or water. Both have no significant amount of sugar or acid.
