A Good Poop

Soft drink science

Belpoggi F, Soffritti M, Tibaldi E, Falcioni L, Bua L, Trabucco F. Results of long-term carcinogenicity bioassays on Coca-Cola administered to Sprague-Dawley rats. Ann N Y Acad Sci. 2006 Sep;1076:736-52.

So apparently Coca-Cola causes breast and pancreatic cancers in rats. Better cut back on the Coke, kiddos.

Chung YW, Han DS, Park YK, Son BK, Paik CH, Jeon YC, Sohn JH. Huge gastric diospyrobezoars successfully treated by oral intake and endoscopic injection of Coca-Cola. Dig Liver Dis. 2006 Jul;38(7):515-7.

Huge gastric diospyrobezoars are huge solidified clumps of nondigestible food material (e.g. vegetable fibres) that can accumulate in your stomach and can potentially block things up real bad. Apparently Coca-Cola is so friggin’ corrosive (ever seen what happens to a tarnished penny after you leave it in a cup of Coca-Cola overnight?) that drinking a couple of cans of it every day for a few days can effectively dissolve diospyrobezoars. We’re talking about things that stomach acid couldn’t deal with!

Devlin H, Bassiouny MA, Boston D. Hardness of enamel exposed to Coca-Cola and artificial saliva. J Oral Rehabil. 2006 Jan;33(1):26-30.

Now we know why they call it a soft drink. Soft as in your teeth after you drink it. Hey oh!

Koenigs M, Tranel D. Prefrontal cortex damage abolishes brand-cued changes in cola preference. Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci. 2008;3:1-6.

Gee, somebody got paid off by Pepsi.

Ellertson C. History and efficacy of emergency contraception: beyond Coca-Cola. Fam Plann Perspect. 1996 Mar-Apr;28(2):44-8.

Hong CY, Shieh CC, Wu P, Chiang BN. The spermicidal potency of Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola. Hum Toxicol. 1987 Sep;6(5):395-6.

Aw yeah. There be fewer things less classy than douching with Coca-Cola after getting boned in an unprotected manner, and that shit won’t even do nothing! RU-486 is where it’s at.

    In all fairness, tomato ketchup or table vinegar will do the same… Although you don’t tend to drink either of those in 330ml servings.

    re this paper by Taianese team of Hong CY, Shieh CC, Wu P, Chiang BN. on “The spermicidal potency of Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola.” Journal of Human Toxicology. 1987

    If you email me here, I can whisper a very interesting rumor about this paper, how it is going to make international headlines next week, maybe sooner. In fact, both the guys who did the study on Pepsi and the team that did the study of Coke, they are both going to be recogznied by a world body in later October. if you email me, i can tell you details and you blog on the amazing news story but you cannot blog until next week….okay?

    see my recent story on that website above link, and search for “Coke Pepsi spermicide” or under news.google and you will see it.

    Well, for one, the Coca-Cola formula has not been standardized over its lifetime, so it doesn’t seem appropiate to have corporate history in an abstract. And the weight gain and specific cancers seem meaningless unless equal amounts of sugar water was ingested by the controls. In fact, they have only historical controls. And their conclusion is true about oxygen or water: “excessive consumption of [anything] should be generally discouraged.”

    I would like to add that six liters of Diet Coke per day is not adaquate self-medication for hypothyroidism. Scheduling a doctor’s visit is highly recommended, even if you can’t seem to work up any enthusiasm for it.

    Very nice! The bezoar made its grand appearance in tonight’s episode of House. (and apparently, a Diospyrobezoar is a specific bezoar formed from persimmons. odd.)

    How funny, the old coke recipe, the one with actual cocaine in it might be not as bad for us as the new formula.
