Drinking Coca Cola Makes Me Cough
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

Half of a 16.9 oz coke has 5 1/2 tsp of sugar in the especially unhealthy form of high fructose corn syrup. Sugar is very addicting & nearly 2 tbsp. Is quite a bit. It also has caffeine, which is addicting. See http://www. Huffingtonpost. Com/news/sugar-addiction for good articles on sugar addiction & http://texasfarmersmarket. Org/the-hazards-of-drinking-soda/
aspartame is also addicting & unhealthy! ...Read more
I drink 2 litres of coca cola over a span of two, almost every two days for the past year, Can this cause diabetes or other health problems? Thanks
YESSSSS!: Sugar sweetened beverages like Coke are the least healthy food you can eat or drink and MANY studies show that they increase your risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and fatty liver. So before you develop major health problems, get off the soda and quench your thirst with water. Low fat milk is also healthy but juice should be limited. ...Read more
I drink a lot of soda durin the day like pepsi or coca cola it so addictive nd can't stop, there one thing I want to is drinkin a lot of soda harmful?
Yes, very: The high sugar in sodas risks weight gain, Insulin resistance, and ultimately type 2 diabetes. So-called "diet" drinks aren't safe either -- there are associations between drinking them and risk of strokes. Having been through this myself, I can tell you it's very do-able to shift from colas to plain water, teas, and sparkling waters free of chemical poisons. It's hard at first, yet worth it! ...Read more
When you consider all of facts and risks associated with Coca-Cola, it is easy to understand why many doctors warn against people drinking Coca-Cola or virtually any other soft drink even in moderation. Water is the best.
Is drinking 0.5l Coca-cola ZERO per day unhealthy / dangerous in long term (lifetime) perspective?
In my opinion Coke Zero is poison and very unhealthy. I strongly advise NEVER drinking it if you want to have good health. It has both aspartame and acesulfame potassium, both of which are hazardous.
Diet soda consumption appears to cause obesity and significant increased risk of diabetes, heart attack and stroke. See

I'm drinking coca cola and go through 2 liter's in a day, if I was to switch to diet coke would this be better for me losing weight?
Yes-- but....: This is a ton of soda to be drinking each day -not healthy.

Does caffeine make anxiety/ocd worse? If so, how much would be safe to drink? Would 1 or 2 cans of coca cola or Pepsi a day be ok?
My wife says after opening coca cola, it can't be stored for more than a few days becus when the gas in the drink runs out, there are toxins. True?
Coca Cola: Alleged toxic acidity levels are baseless. Lawsuits based on these notions have been dismissed by several American courts. Although numerous court cases have been filed against The Coca-Cola Company since the 1920s, alleging that the acidity of the drink is dangerous, no evidence corroborating this claim has been found. Scientific evidence indicates Coca-Cola's acidity has no harm associated. ...Read more
Should I be worried about diabetes? I notice that if I have food high in sugar that I tend to get clammy and break out into a cold sweat. For example, over halloween I had 2 cookies and was drinking a glass of coca cola when I had this reaction. I'll also
Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose the cause of your symptoms. However another possibility could be reactive hypoglycemia. The body may send out a lot of Insulin in response to all the sugar that was ingested. The Insulin overshoots and you end up with very low blood sugar and thus can feel ill. I suggest that you see your doctor to find out what is happening with your blood sugars. Take care. ...Read more
If coca cola zero has zero calories why can't I drink it a whole day? (besides effects of staining on teeth) thx in advance.
Phosphoric Acid!: Zero coke and other low calorie soft drinks don't contain sugars but do have phosphoric acid as an ingredient. This acid, especially with repeated sipping exposure to your tooth's surface, can demineralize (soften) the tooth's enamel making it more susceptible to decay. ...Read more

Hi doctor, I am having mitral valve prolapse with chest pain and shortness of breath. Does drinking coca cola and pepsi worsen it or create problem.

Can you dry drown from accidentally inhaling a drop of coca-cola? Tipped head back to get the last drop and went straight down no cough right after
No problem: The amount that went down your trachea was obviously small since no coughing was caused. Your broncial tubes and lungs can easily absorb this without problems. ...Read more
Is it bad to drink water, pepsi, coca, or any kind of drinks during eating food? If yes, when we can drink after having food?
Cough: I think that drinking something cold can indeed make a cough worse due to the close proximity of of the esophagus to the trachea. Cold typically causes structures that have the ability to constrict or narrow. In the airway this narrowing or constriction can lead to bronchospasm which leads to shortness if breath/ coughing/ wheezing. ...Read more
Potentially: Cough syrups may contain a variety of active ingredients such as first generation antihistamines, mucolytics (break up mucus), cough suppressants (dextromethorphan), narcotics (codeine) and alcohol. While most people tolerate these just fine and the cough improves, I prefer to treat the "cause" of the cough rather than just the suppress symptoms. Be careful with any and all medications! ...Read more
