3. Artificial Sweeteners in Coke are linked to Alzheimer’s and Stroke
Many Coke drinks use an artificial sweetener known as aspartame as a substitute for sugar. However, Coca-Cola doesn’t want you to know this because it’s actually more harmful than granulated sugar. Studies have linked aspartame to hundreds of diseases including Alzheimer’s, stroke, brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, seizures, emotional disorders, and diabetes. That’s because aspartame breaks down into formaldehyde, which is a deadly neurotoxin and can wreak havoc on crucial proteins and DNA.
