This is an English translation of the original article entitled, “Esto Le Pasa Al Cuerpecito De Un Niño Cada Vez Que Le Das Coca Cola”, which may be found at: http://eldiariodechihuahua.mx/Internacional/2018/08/15/esto-le-pasa-al-cuerpecito-de-un-nino-cada-vez-que-le-das-coca-cola
If drinking Coca Cola is harmful for an adult, it can be even worse for a child. Any pediatrician, any dental health specialist and anyone with common sense knows: drinking can cause serious damage to a child's body.
In spite of this, the practice is still common, since sodas are part of the daily diet of thousands of families in the world; even some babies consume soda or sugary drinks in the bottle.
The pharmacist Niraj Naik, famous for his texts on nutrition and healing on his site The Renegade Pharmacist, described the effects that drinking a can of Coca Cola causes in the body as the minutes pass, and that, in children, they can be even worse.
IN THE FIRST 10 MINUTES
The body receives the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar, which is 100 percent of an adult's requirements. We do not vomit for such amount of sweet thanks to the fact that phosphoric acid cuts off flavor and nausea. Such a quantity of sugar in a child increases by 1.6 percent its probability of being obese with each can of soda. And the options without sugar are not better, because the aspartame they contain is potentially harmful for children under 3 years of age in whom it can cause vision loss, brain disorders, inflammation of the pancreas and heart. And not to mention the teeth: sugar damages the enamel of the teeth and makes them more prone to tooth decay.
AT 20 MINUTES
Excess sugar causes an insulin spike. The liver can not with so much sweet and then turns it into fat. This generates a problem known as insulin resistance that coexists with obesity, type 2 diabetes and even some cancers. It is not free that the figures of childhood and adolescent obesity are going up and, with them, the cases of early diabetes.
AT 40 MINUTES
The caffeine contained in Coca Cola is absorbed. The pupils dilate, the blood pressure increases, the heart accelerates and the brain responds by blocking sleep. Before all this, the liver pours more sugar in the blood. An excess of caffeine can cause uneasiness in children, headache or stomach pain, insomnia and lack of concentration. In children less than 3 years old it can causelater health complications.
AT 45 MINUTES
There is a pleasant sensation because the body produces more dopamine, which stimulates the pleasure centers of the brain. It's the same effect that heroin produces.
AT 60 MINUTES
The phosphoric acid contained in the soda is linked to magnesium, zinc and calcium in the large intestine; This mixture, together with sugar and artificial sweeteners, causes calcium to be discarded in the urine. In a small one, this can cause that their bones do not develop correctly or that they grow weak, including the teeth.
AFTER AN HOUR
In the urine is discarded magnesium, zinc, calcium, potassium, sodium and water, substances that the body may have used to nourish especially the bones. As the organism discards Coca Cola, there is a "slump" of sugar that makes it feel irritable and listless.
Other research links the artificial colors of Coca Cola and other candies with childhood hyperactivity, and even with some types of cancer. Memory, language, sleep patterns, behavior and learning are affected by this type of additives.
So the next time your son asks you for a Coke, think twice before offering it to hi.
