Does anyone else find that they learn better after a can of Coke? I swear by a few cans of Coke before learning a new process at work, it keeps my usually bored brain active.

Caffeine and sugar have that effect. However, that doesn't mean it's healthy to drink soft-drinks regularly.

Quackery, Ask her what she thinks about apple's and other fruits.

Fructose Sucrose SSDN



I'm betting the answer has a lot to do with fiber.

Not quackery, it's food science. Sugars in fruits are fine as there is fibre in fruits that counteracts the boost in blood sugar you get when eating them. The problem with fruit juice is that this fibre is taken away when they extract the juice so you do get big jumps in blood sugar when you drink them. Also when you drink fruit juice it's the juice of many fruits, much more than you would consume if you had to eat them.

To put it simply your body doesn't need sugar, it doesn't have any nutritional value ... but it does need the vitamins and minerals found in fruits of course.

This is a big subject area and could take a while to explain what effects sugar has on the body.

Coffee and Pepsi are the only drinks I drink that aren't Ribena, Tango, Dr. Pepper, 7up, Tizer, Irn Bru, Red Bull, or water

I don't drink alcohol at all either. I'm a big tea drinker, and I love my hot oolong!
