The Effects Of Soft Drinks In Our Body In Just 60 Minutes.

In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100 per cent of your recommended daily intake.) You don't immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavour allowing you to keep it down.

20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There's plenty of that at this particular moment). 

40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.

45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centres of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.

60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. 
This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.

The caffeine's diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) 
It is now assured that you'll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water.

 As the rave inside of you dies down you'll start to have a sugar crash. 
You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You've also now, literally, urinated the water that was in the Coke.
But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth. 

That’s only the first hour. Over time, a couple of sodas a day will start to affect nearly all parts of your body. For example:

Your Brain

A diet high in sugar can interfere with a number of neurological processes, particularly those involved in memory making. A study published in the journal Neuroscience found that excessive amounts of added sugar can reduce the production of a chemical known as brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). And with inadequate levels of BDNF, everyday cognitive tasks like learning and memory formations become much more difficult.
“Our results indicate that a popularly consumed diet can influence crucial aspects of neuronal and behavioral plasticity associated with the function of BDNF,” the researchers wrote in their conclusion.

Your Heart

Most soft drinks contain high fructose corn syrup, a sweetener that's come under considerable scrutiny. High fructose corn syrup has been associated with an increased risk of metabolic syndrome, a condition associated with an elevated risk of both diabetes and heart disease.

Your Lungs

Scientists have also linked soda consumption to an elevated risk of pulmonary complications, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD). Sodium benzoate, found in sodas, is used as a preservative(microbial control) in foods. Sodium preservatives add sodium to the diet and reduce the availability of potassium. Some reported reactions to sodium benzoate include recurring urticaria (rash), asthma, and eczema.

Your Teeth

Each time you have a sip of soda, sugar and acid bonds with bacteria in your mouth, giving rise to more acid. This acid weakens enamel, which over time leads to bacterial plaque that causes cavities. Soda also lowers the pH of the saliva, boosting bacterial proliferation and dental erosion. And contrary to popular belief, diet soda is no exception.
When tooth decay reaches the nerve, the root, and the area at the base of the tooth, the tooth may die and, if left untreated, an abscess can develop.
Your Stomach
The relationship between soft drink consumption and body weight is so strong that researchers calculate that for each additional soda consumed, the risk of obesity increases 1.6 times.
70% of Cardiovascular disease is related to obesity.
42% of breast and colon cancer is diagnosed in obese individuals.
30% of gall bladder surgery is related to obesity.
Your Kidney
Sodas contain high levels of phosphoric acid, which has been linked to kidney stones and other renal problems. You are likely to get kidney stones if you are a male, Caucasian and very overweight.
Your Reproductive Organs
Soft drinks are coated with resin that contains BPA (bisphenyl-A). This is the same cancer causing chemical found in plastic baby bottles, water bottles, and plastic containers that wreaks havoc on the endocrine system, potentially causing premature puberty and reproductive abnormalities.
