This Guy is Drinking Ten Cokes a Day For Science

This blogger has decided to drink ten whole cans of Coke each and every day, to see if it will wreak havoc on his body. Spoiler alert: It does.

Some people have -- how can this be put mildly -- issues with consuming rational amounts of soda pop. But these sodas are usually packed chock-full with sugar, and doctors tend not to like it when you inject your body with 350 grams of sugar in a day. However, one guy is doing just that by downing ten whole cans of Coke each and every day. Why? For science!

The owner behind the blog 10 Cokes a Day has been drinking, uh, ten Cokes a day for nearly a month now. In a move reminiscent to Morgan Spurlock's Supersize Me, he's doing it to raise awareness about the health ramifications of ingesting that much sugar. So far, he's gained over twenty pounds and has some blood pressure issues to boot, proving once again that too much of a good thing is actually a bad thing.

He still has ten more days to go, so who knows what will happen at the end? Maybe he'll turn into a giant can of soda.
