After observing how his patients continued to suffer from obesity related diseases even after following a strict doctor prescribed low-fat diet, “renegade pharmacist” Niraj Naik decided to do some further research.
He discovered that fructose, particularly high-fructose corn syrup, was closely associated with obesity, diabetes and heart-disease.

Coca Cola’s Sugary Effects
Just One Hour
A single 12-ounce can of Coca Cola can do a lot of damage to your body in a mere 60 minutes. The infographic below, created by the Renegade Pharmacist, outlines just exactly what is going to happen if you should decide to drink the sugary beverage.
First 10 Minutes Are Not So Innocent
Ten teaspoons of sugary sweetness makes a big splash in your body! Fructose is a type of sugar that can only be metabolized by the liver, and follows almost the same exact metabolic pathway as alcohol. This is why non-drinkers can still end up with fatty liver disease.
20 Minutes Later With High Blood Glucose
Your blood sugar spikes, and your body is forced to release insulin from the pancreas in order to shuttle that sugar out of the blood before it reaches dangerous levels. Your liver can only store a minimal amount of sugar, and will convert the excess to fatty acids that get dumped back into the bloodstream. And guess where that gets stored? Yep, in your fat cells!
40 Minutes In Creates A Caffeine Buzz
Besides sugar, a can of Coke also contains caffeine, which has been proven to be a highly addictive substance! After 40 minutes, your body is done absorbing all the caffeine from this unhealthy drink. Your pupils are now as big as flying saucers, your blood pressure is on the rise, and you are no longer drowsy.
45 Minutes And Feeling “Fine”
Let’s make no mistake. Both caffeine and sugar stimulate the same receptors in the body as illegal drugs. At 45 minutes into this journey, your body is now stimulating dopamine production, which makes you feel very, very good and your pupils continue to dilate. This reaction has been compared to what happens with heroin use.
60 Minutes Leads To A Bathroom Break
Caffeine’s diuretic effects make you need to use the bathroom. You may think you’re only dispensing with some water, but the real truth is much worse. You can kiss your strong skeletal structure goodbye, as the important minerals calcium, zinc and magnesium are now headed to the sewer instead of your bones.
The party is over, and you start to crash – hard! The sugar and caffeine both start to wear off, and you become tired and irritable. At this point, you might think another can of Coke might help you recover and focus. Unfortunately, the cycle will just repeat itself. Sound familiar?
