    The after effects of Fizzy Drinks the latest health horror story

    We all know that fizzy drinks such as Coca-Cola are loaded with sugar but do you know what happens to your body when you glug a can of the sweet stuff, Times live reports

    An infographic that reveals the effects Coke has on your system within an hour of entering it has gone viral.

    British health writer Wade Meredith explains that a 330ml can of Coca-Cola contains so much sugar your body should vomit, but the phosphoric acid "cuts the flavor”, helping you keep the liquid down.

    After 40 minutes your blood sugar level has spiked, your pupils have dilated and your blood pressure has risen.

    The body starts to produce more dopamine, a neurotransmitter that controls the brain's pleasure centres: "physically, it's the way heroin works".

    By the time the hour is up you will want to urinate and will start to have a sugar crash, making you drowsy and irritable.

    "You've now, literally, p***** away all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used."

    The infographic's creator, former UK pharmacist Niraj Naik, says that this pattern "applies to pretty much most caffeinated soft drinks, not just Coke".
