No doubt you’ve seen that info-graphic doing the rounds from The Renegade Pharmacist with the title What Happens One Hour After Drinking A Can Of Coke. Here’s the info-graphic for those who haven’t seen it, but click on the link to The Renegade Pharmacist’s website to find out more details about it. It’s quite interesting.
Although this was published back in May, it took a while to gain traction and by the end of July it was being shared at a steady rate that it seemed to be shared by every second friend or page I follow.
And then, to be expected, the parodies followed like this one from the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) called What Happens an Hour After Drinking Locally Sourced, Sustainable, Organic Kale Juice?
Since creating and sharing that parody info-graphic, CEI have copped some criticism from people who obviously love locally sourced, sustainable, organic kale juice and they’ve edited their website to notify visitors that is is all a bit of fun.
Well, that’s all well and good, but what if you try to get your kids to drink something like locally sourced, sustainable, organic kale juice? What happens to them in the hour after you’ve given them a bottle?
Last night on the way home from watching a live game of football, we found out. So I present this info-graphic to you. I have blurred out the brand of cold pressed juice that my wife bought our son, but I can tell you that this bottle contained celery, kale, apple, cucumber, parsley, fennel and lemon juice. I quite enjoyed it seeing that my kid couldn’t stand it and handed me the bottle, but that sort of goes against buying your kid healthy drinks, right?
Do you try to get your kids to drink fancy things like coconut water, green smoothies and low-carb (sugar free) protein shakes?
