One man tried to drink 10 cans of Coca-Cola a day for 1 month. Here's how it went!
It is a very unique experiment conducted by the fifty-year-old George Prior who wanted to demonstrate how much, drinks like Coca-Cola, are bad for the health of your body.
For a month, the man drank ten cans every day, a high but not too absurd amount: in fact, half of Americans consume an average of three a day.
The effects on his physique were felt soon, with no other changes to his lifestyle. He started putting on weight, losing muscle mass. Over the course of a month he increased from 76 to 87 kg and his blood pressure went from 129/77 to 145/96.
Most disturbing, perhaps, is that George began to develop an intense craving for Coke, as if he had become addicted to the soda. "People need to be aware of the risks of excess sugar in their diet," he said after the experiment. How not to agree with him?
