Coca-Cola’s Mysterious Ingredient – Cochineal Insect Liquid

In 2006, for the first time in the world, a lawsuit was launched again Coca-Cola over the composition of the drink. It is usually written on the label that Coca-Cola contains sugar, phosphoric acid, caffeine, caramel, carbon dioxide and some kind of “extract”. This extract aroused suspicion. And Coca-Cola was forced to reveal the secret of what Cola is actually made of. It turned out to be a liquid obtained from the insect Cochineal (Cochineal).

Cochineal is an insect that lives on the Canary Islands and in Mexico. This insect is attached by a proboscis to a plant, sucks juice and never moves. These insects are collected in the fields by villagers … From the females and eggs of these insects, a pigment called carmine is removed, which turns Coca-Cola brown. The dried look of the cochineal makes them look like raisins, but in fact they are insects!

Now you know what the word “Coca” means in the name of the drink. And now you will know what is hidden behind the word “Cola”. To do this, there is a story of an employee who worked at Coca-Cola for 23 years.

Liquorice roots are the raw material for cola and main food source for various mammals, including mice which feed on these roots. Large cola companies harvest tons of these roots using excavators. When assembling these tons of roots, they are not able to pull out the mice.

Therefore, the liquorice roots are pressed along with what was among the roots.

Only after this the remnants of mice hair, paws and so on are pulled out of this mass!

Due to the fact that the drink has a dark shade, it is not noticeable that the blood and gastric fluid of mice is also present in it. Of course, the cola giants are trying to neutralize harmful substances with chemicals.

For 23 years, the employee who told this story has never drank a glass of cola.

Then judge for yourself.

Scientists from Washington analysed the components of one of the ingredients of Coca-Cola. It turned out that caramel is not melted sugar at all, but a chemical mixture of sugar, ammonia and sulfites, obtained at high pressure and temperature. It can cause cancer of the lungs, liver, thyroid gland and leukemia.

It also turned out that alcohol is included in the soda: this is the basis of the very secret supplement “7 X.” A few drops of aromatic oils, coriander and cinnamon are added to alcohol.

Additionally, the cochineal insect liquid – carmine did not pass certification at all, therefore, in some countries they do not produce cola at all.

How does the body react to cola?

  • After 10 minutes.

10 teaspoons of sugar will “hit” your system (this is the daily recommended rate).

You do not vomit, because phosphoric acid suppresses the effect of sugar.

  • In 20 minutes.

There will be a jump in insulin in the blood. The liver turns all sugar into fats.

  • In 40 minutes.

Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils will dilate.

Blood pressure will increase because the liver releases more sugar into the blood.

Adenosine receptors are blocked, thereby preventing drowsiness.

  • In 45 minutes.

Your body will increase the production of dopamine hormone, which stimulates the brain’s pleasure center.

The same principle of action in heroin.

  • After an hour.

Phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your intestines, speeding up your metabolism.

Increased excretion of calcium through urine.

  • More than an hour later.

Diuretic action comes into play.

Calcium, magnesium and zinc, which are found in your bones, are excreted, as are sodium, electrolyte and water.

  • More than an hour and a half later.

You become irritable or lethargic. All water contained in Coca-Cola is excreted through urine.

The active ingredient in Coca-Cola is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8. To transport Coca-Cola concentrate, the truck must be equipped with special containers designed for highly corrosive materials.

The detailed composition of the advertised Coca-Cola Light decaffeinated product:

  • 1. Aqua carbonated, E150d, E952, E950, E951, E338, E330, Aromas, E211

Aqua carbonated – sparkling water. The presence of carbon dioxide in water excites gastric secretion, increases the acidity of gastric juice and provokes flatulence – abundant gas production. In addition, not spring water is used, but tap water passed through special filters.

  • 2. E952 (Cyclamic Acid and Na, K, Ca salts), Cyclamic acid and its sodium, potassium and calcium salts.

Sugar substitute. Cyclamate is a synthetic chemical, has a sweet taste 200 times the sweetness of sugar, and is used as an artificial sweetener. It was banned for use in human food, as it is a carcinogen that causes cancer. In 1969, by order of the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it was banned for use in the United States, as it has been proven that it, like saccharin and aspartame, causes bladder cancer in rats. The same year is banned in Canada. In 1975, banned in Japan, South Korea and Singapore. It is forbidden to use in the beverage industry in Indonesia. In 1979, the World Health Organization rehabilitated cyclamates, recognizing them as harmless.

  • 3. E150d (Caramel IV – Ammonia-sulphite process, dye)

– burnt sugar, obtained by processing sugar at certain temperatures, with or without the addition of chemicals. In this case, ammonium sulfate is added.

  • 4. E950 (Acesulfame Potassium, Acesulfame Potassium)

– 200 times sweeter than sucrose. It contains methyl ether, which worsens the functioning of the cardiovascular system, and aspartic acid, which has an exciting effect on the nervous system and can, over time, become addictive. Acesulfame is poorly soluble. Products with this sweetener are not recommended for children, pregnant and lactating women.

  • 5. E951 (Aspartame)

– sweetener for patients with diabetes. Chemically unstable: decomposes into methanol and phenylalanine with increasing temperature. Methanol (methyl alcohol) is very dangerous: 5-10 ml can lead to death of the optic nerve and irreversible blindness, 30 ml can lead to death.

  • 6. E338 (Orthophosphoric Acid, phosphoric acid) – chemical formula: H3 PO4.

Fire and explosion hazard. Causes eye and skin irritation.

British government will buy OneWeb for surveillance

The developer of the OneWeb global Internet satellite system, which went bankrupt at the beginning of the year, announced that it had agreed to buy the business and continue its work. Shares in the company will receive the UK and the British branch of the Indian company Bharti Enterprises. In total, one billion dollars will be invested in OneWeb, which should allow to continue launching satellites.

OneWeb is a project to create a global satellite Internet system. To date, the company launched 74 of the 650 satellites planned. Satellites should be located in 12 orbital planes at an altitude of 1200 kilometers. The first batch of satellites was launched by Roscosmos, but it also got most of the launch contracts. Despite this, the operation of the system in Russia is in question: while OneWeb has not been able to obtain the necessary permissions from the Russian State Commission on Radio Frequencies.

At the end of March, OneWeb announced that it had filed for bankruptcy because it was unable to agree with investors on financing because of the global crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. According to the Finantial Times, the deal fell through a few hours before the next launch of the satellites, which after that they decided not to cancel. The company filed for a form of bankruptcy that allowed it to sell the assets of another organization so that the project could continue.

On July 3, OneWeb announced that the British government and Bharti Global Limited will become the new owners of the stake in the company. It is the British representative office of the Indian conglomerate Bharti Enterprises, which includes, among other things, the third largest mobile operator in the world – Bharti Airtel. Each of the new co-owners will invest $ 500 million.

The exact details of the deal are unknown, but Bloomberg reports that the new owners will receive shares of 45 percent, and the remaining 10 percent will go to current investors. Although OneWeb, Bharti Global Limited, and the British government have agreed on the terms, OneWeb lenders may reject the deal. It is expected that in the coming months the company will continue to launch satellites into orbit.

In a press release, OneWeb notes that India’s Bharti Airtel will use satellite communications in its networks. The benefit to the British government, in addition to the overall strengthening of its presence in space, is not called. However, before that, experts have repeatedly noted that this may be related to the UK’s plans to create its own satellite navigation system, which became known after the European Union decided to disconnect the country from its Galileo satellite system.

US coronavirus medicine will cost $ 3120

Gilead Sciences, an American biopharmaceutical company, has announced the value of its coronavirus drug. The general course of treatment for 5 days will have a price tag of $ 2,340.

Until September, remdesivir will be sold only in the United States. The cost of a full course of treatment for people with private insurance is $ 3,120, for an ampoule – $ 520. For patients with state insurance, as well as for patients from other countries, the price of the drug will be $ 2,340 per course and 390 per bottle.

Remdesivir was approved in early May for the treatment of coronavirus in the United States. Although the drug was originally developed to combat Ebola, it was not able to show visible results against this disease. But later, the drug had an effect in the treatment of SARS and MERS infections.

A large clinical study by the National Institute of Allergology and Infectious Diseases showed that the drug reduced recovery time by an average of four days, but did not affect the number of deaths.

Since the United States has a fairly large network of insurance institutions, the importance of remdesivir is not only in its benefit to the patient, but also for the healthcare system.

“Based on the example of the United States, an earlier discharge from the hospital will save her about $ 12 thousand per patient,” said Daniel O’Day, director general of Gilead Sciences.

Since receiving permission for emergency use of the drug, Gilead Sciences has transferred remdesivir to hospitals to treat patients. The last batches of donated drugs were distributed on Monday, June 29th.

In Germany, for almost 30 years, the authorities secretly gave orphans to pedophiles

In Germany, the University of Hildesheim published the final report on the scandalous Kentler project – a terrifying social experiment, during which for about 30 years children were given up for adoption to pedophiles, calling it molestation “socialization” and “sexual education,” Deutsche Welle writes.

In the 1960s in Germany, people in some circles viewed sex with children not as taboo, but as something progressive. One of the key figures in such thinking was Helmut Kentler, professor of psychology and pedagogy in Berlin. For a long time he was considered a seer and one of the most prominent sexologists in Germany. His books on education sold well, he was a popular expert and commentator on radio and television, and held leading positions in the Berlin center for educational research. 

The psychologist founded the theory of “emancipatory sexual education”, suggesting that children have the right to express their sexuality. Beginning in the 1970s, he conducted clinical trials in which pedophiles were allowed to adopt homeless teenage boys aged 13 to 15 for their “mutual benefit”. According to Kentler, pedophiles could become particularly loving adoptive parents.

By 1988, the professor summed up the results of the first stage of the experiments, calling it successful. He argued that sexual relations between adoptive fathers and minors are harmless and help adolescents quickly adapt to society and facilitate the process of growing up. The fact that the boys entered into adulthood with a broken psyche did not bother Kentler.

The experiments were secret, but were carried out with the full approval of the authorities of West Berlin. In his papers, the psychologist wrote that he “managed to enlist the support of responsible local authorities”: from academic institutions to state social welfare services.

For many years, the professor managed to convince the authorities of the normality of his ideas, so he was never prosecuted by the court. By the time his victims made statements, his statute of limitations had expired. The scandal flared up only in 2015; Kentler himself died in 2008.

When the full-scale investigation began, it turned out that there was a whole network in which officials from the Berlin Office for Juvenile Affairs, the city Senate and a number of educational institutions were involved. All of them “accepted, supported and defended” the experiment and its adult participants. In addition, it was possible to establish that among the adoptive fathers were, including eminent scientists from the Max Planck Institute, the Free University of Berlin and the Odenwald school, which are now suspected of pedophilia. (By the way, the Odenwald school was already the subject of litigation in 2014, when a case was launched on the corruption of minor students.) According to Marco and Sven, who became victims of the experiment, one person, The suspect in involvement in this system – the former head of the youth welfare service – is still alive. However, no investigation has yet been made.

The first report on the Kentler experiment was published in 2016 by the University of Gottingen. Researchers then stated that the Berlin Senate did not seem interested in clarifying the truth.

Berlin senator for youth and children Sandra Sheres called the results of the investigation of the University of Hildesheim “shocking and terrifying.” She openly expressed her sympathy for the victims and condemned the crimes, which she calls “simply unimaginable.” Although the statute of limitations for these crimes has expired, Sheres promised financial compensation for the suffering.
