Coca- Cola ZeroIf we haven’t turned you off drinking Coke (What Happens To Our Body After Drinking Coca Cola?) in our last newsletter, maybe finding out about the ingredients of Coke Zero will do it.

Aqua Carbonated

It increases the acidity of the gastric juices and provokes gases. In other words it is great for kids who want to burp the alphabet…….


This is food colouring obtained through the processing of sugar at specified temperatures, with the addition of ammonium sulphate.

E950 – Acesulfame Potassium

It is 200 times sweeter than sugar, containing methyl ether, which aggravates the operation of the cardiovascular system. In time it can lead to addiction. It is badly dissolved and is not recommended for use by children and pregnant women.

E951 – Aspartame

We have written about Aspartme before. Please click here (Is Aspartame Safe?)

E338 – Orthophosphoric Acid

It is known that orthophosphoric acid intereferes with the absorption of calcium and iron. Other side effects are thirst and skin rashes.

E331 – Citric Acid

It is used as a preservative and stabiliser.

E211 – Sodium Benzoate

It is an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent. 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 his words, 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.

There are many uses for Coca Cola
Many police officers in the U.S have bottles of coke in their cars and when a car accident happens, they wash the blood out of the road with it.
Great tool for removing rusty stains on chrome surfaces of cars.
To remove corrosion from car batteries.
To clean stains from clothes, pour coke on dirty clothes, add washing powder and run the washing machine as usual.
In India, some farmers use it instead of pesticides, because it is cheaper.

Obviously Coke is a very useful product, just not for drinking!
