Drinking Coke and Pepsi Leads to Bigger Testicles, More Testosterone: Study

A study has shown how drinking Coca-Cola and Pepsi can lead to larger testicles and higher testosterone levels.

Northwest Minzu University in China attempted to determine the effects of carbonated beverages on fertility and sex organs in men.

The study looked at three groups of mice — one that drank only water, another that drank varying amounts of Coca-Cola, and another that did the same with Pepsi — over 15 days.

Tests on the rodents included weighing their testicles and drawing blood. They were tested on day one, days five, seven, 10, and 15.

It was quickly discovered that the mice drinking coke and 100 percent Pepsi showed a significant change compared to a mix of Pepsi and water.

For example, the mice given straight Coca-Cola had higher levels of the male hormone compared to the group that drank water.

The study concluded: “Drinking Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola may promote testicular development and increase testosterone secretion [ …] Our findings provide the scientific basis for a full understanding of the effects of carbonated beverages and their mechanisms on human developmental and reproductive function, and how they benefit the prevention of prostate dysfunction and cancer.”

But that contradicts previous studies that suggested sugary drinks made men less fertile, rather than boosting it, the new study suggests.

A previous survey of 2,500 men showed that those who drank a liter of Coke a day had 30 percent fewer sperm than those who didn’t drink Coke.

However, some research has shown how caffeine can increase testosterone levels.
