Coca-Cola is one of the most famous drinks in the world. People are somehow able to drink it at all hours of the day and are incredibly loyal to their brand.
Now, we don't have to tell you that drinking any soda over and over for you is bad, but this is just another reason why you should cut the carbonated drinks out of your life.
Copenhagen University Hospital in Denmark has found out that drinking large amounts of cola, say... a liter, could do some major harm to a man's sperm count.
2,554 men were used in the study and the results are pretty insane. Some men loss 30% of their sperm count.
Where moderate Coca-Cola drinks had a sperm count of 56 million per milliliter, heavy drinkers had only 35 million per milliliter.
That's a lot of soldiers not showing up to battle.
But, that is within the normal range. The problem is that lower and lower amounts could indicate infertility. And it only gets worse for that little fella down there.
Another study conducted by the Nicolaus Copernicus University and the Prof. Franciszek Łukaszczyk Memorial Hospital in Bydgoszcz, Poland found that lots of Coca-Cola drinking could lead to performance issues.
The medical term is erectile dysfunction, but you may know it by its more common name: "Oh, sweetie. That's pretty common for men your age."
Now, there are many factors as to why this happens, and the study does actually point this out. But, it seems that the sweetener and high fructose corn syrup may be the cause of it. That's why they call it a "soft drink."
So, what to do with this jarring information? How about not freaking out?
Drink a soda once in a while, sure. Hell, get a Surge, you remember those right? Don't go overboard. Get some water in you and go for a walk, NYC. Your body and your partner will thank you in many ways.[via The Sun] [via Instagram]
