Would you drink 10 Cokes a day to prove a point? Probably not. Especially now that George Prior has decided to do it for you.
In an experiment similar to Super Size Me (a documentary that explored Morgan Spurlock’s month-long McDonalds-only eating binge and its affect on his health), Prior documented what happens when someone drinks 10 Cokes each day for a month.
Prior wanted to raise awareness about how much sugar Americans drink daily and what soda can do to our bodies. By his estimate, “a big percentage of Americans drink at least the sugar equivalent of my ten Cokes.” Though his numbers are probably slightly exaggerated, it is worth noting that soft drinks are the number one source of added calories in Americans’ diets and, drinking your calories has been linked to an increase in appetite.
