What effects do different liquids have on pork meat???

coke (zero)

  what do I know about this liquid and how it would affect pork meat? hypothesis: The acidity in the coke will slowly break down the meat and little by little begin to take pieces of the meat and dissolve them. The meat on the fat turns to a clear colour as well.  

1. Counteractive to weight loss efforts

One 330ml can of Coke contains around 160 calories. Assuming you drink one can of Coke everyday: that’s 4800 extra calories every month or 1.4lbs. In a year, that adds up to 57,600 extra calories or 16.8lbs! Granted, you will not be gaining an absolute 16.8lbs since our body metabolism adapts accordingly from consuming more/less calories, but you will still be gaining an extra layer of weight just by drinking Coke/soda drinks over other healthier, lower calories options.

2. Stains and corrodes teeth

Coca-Cola and sodas with colorings stain your teeth, as many are already aware. In addition, they have been shown to destroy 10 times more teeth material than fruit juices in just the first three minutes of drinking in a test. Slices of enamel were placed in Coke and other carbonated drinks for 48 hours, where there was a 5% weight loss of the enamel in the end. The high acidity content (pH 2.0~4.0) causes corrosion of your enamel. Granted, lab conditions do not mirror reality, but the corrosive effect of Coke on your teeth is something that accumulates over time.

3. Limited hydration

Coke and soft drinks contain caffeine, which is a diuretic. A diuretic is a drug that speeds up the rate of urine production - meaning it removes water from your body. While you can get your thirst quenched when drinking Coke, you do not get as hydrated as compared to if you just drink pure water.

4. Artificial stimulant which alters one's brain

Caffeine is also a psychoactive stimulant drug. It affects the central nervous system and alters brain function, resulting in temporary changes in perception, mood, consciousness and behavior. By increasing the levels of adrenaline (a stress hormone) in your body, you end off setting off feelings of anxiety and tension in your body. Instead of being able to operate as a fully conscious being, you end up having less control of your thoughts, emotions and behavior.

5. Causes insomnia and other sleeping disorders

The caffeine prevents drowsiness by (i) blocking the effects of hormones serotonin and melatonin and (ii) blocking adenosine receptors (sleep-inducers) from being binded. Apart from causing insomnia, it also prevents you from getting the full benefits of sleep, as the excerpt below from How Stuff Works shows: The most important long-term problem (of caffeine) is the effect (it) has on sleep. Adenosine reception (sleep inducers) is important to sleep, and especially to deep sleep. The half-life of caffeine in your body is about six hours. That means that if you consume a big cup of coffee with 200 mg of caffeine in it at 3:00 p.m., by 9:00 p.m. about 100 mg of that caffeine is still in your system. You may be able to fall asleep, but your body will probably miss out on the benefits of deep sleep.

Beer (guinness stout)

1. What I know about this liquid and hypothesise its effect on meat. reduction of heterocyclic aromatic amines (HAs) formation in pork most adequate for cooking (maintaining its original texture and complexion: smooth)

1. 'Beer Belly'

  Heavy beer drinking may promote abdominal obesity in men, so called "beer belly".  

2. Heartburn

  Beer contains powerful stimulants of gastric acid secretion and may provoke gastroesophageal reflux and cause heartburn.  

3. Blood pressure

  Daily beer consumption (approximately 40 g of alcohol) may increase blood pressure.  

4. intoxication & dehydration

  Alcohol is a dehydrating agent and downer that reduces activity of the central nervous system. High amounts of alcohol can turn into dehydration, intoxication, and hangover.  

5. impairment of driving-related skills

  Even small amounts of alcohol can have adverse effects on attention and motor skills. Many serious accidents are alcohol related.  

Apple Cider Vinegar
