Soft drinks lead to severe health risks
The journal Respirology published a study which showed that soft drinks lead to lung and breathing disorders such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
People who drink soft drinks such as Coke have a 48% higher risk of getting a heart attack and stroke than people who do not like these drinks.
Plus, carbonation in Coke causes calcium loss in bones, which softens and weakens the bones, and makes them prone to damage.
Hence, if you consider these household uses of Coke, you will easily conclude that it is not suitable for consumption, as it is a great alternative for chemical-laden cleaning agents. It seriously damages the stomach lining and endangers overall health.
