Does drinking pop affect your intelligence?
Posted 1/17/10
I read on a website that drinking pop will mentally affect your well being and will cause you to more likely fail at school.
My opinion on this is that it's a bit cliche although there has been facts for years that drinking too much pop can lead to bad eye sight and diabettes.

Well, pop contains sodium.
Consuming too much sodium will affect the distribution of water in and out of the cell.
Water is one of the means to transport nutrients in the body.
So yea. I'm just saying this by logic stand point.


Having low magnesium and potassium actually affects one's cognition. It's like dealing with another person/personality.
That's what happened to my father when he got cold turkey due to alcohol/smoke withdrawal 2 years ago.

I really dislike talking like this, in medical perspective.
I'm informed, but it doesn't makes me me.

Drinking alchoholic beverages is much worse. Alcohol destroy neurons in your brain, neurons stores data.
So if your brain can store 50 yotta bytes it might become 1tera byte when you become a drunken master by the age of 70.

But back to the topic, that might be true but lots of carbonated energy drinks are out there.
They claim to improve mental performance of the person to drink it.

yeah drinking soda is bad for the body. soda has too much sugar could cause sugar crash/rush, and the mind could not concentrate. too much sugar could lead to diabetic. one time my chemistry teacher had brought a bag of sugar and a cup show how much sugar is in a can of soda. As she scooped out the sugar to measured how much in a can, and the measurement of the sugar was taller than the can of soda. I use to drink a lot soda before, but I grew out of it.

Oh wow, my household buys at least a 3 liter from the store everyday. x.x

Recently my cousin decided to quit Coca cola and started drinking Sprite. That's not any better.

If you drink it before school it will screw up your sugar levels and thus...your concentration...so in that sense...yeah it does.

Don't do it. Oh and btw...

Coke as been proven to be able to break down kidney stones...so imagine what it does to your teeth.

Root canal surgery is the most painful medical treatment you'll ever experience.
