We all know soft drinks like Coca Cola aren’t good for us, but we continue to drink them because they are delicious.

But what effects are they really having on us?

This infographic, which has got the internet all fired up, details what the chemicals and sugars found in a can of Coke do to the human body in the hour after it is consumed.

It should be noted the infographic specifically refers to the straight-up, old-fashioned Coca-Cola with 39g of sugar per can.
