Coca-Cola and Pepsi just doesn’t increase your waistline, they seem to enlarge what you have going on below the waistline, too
It Takes Really Big Balls to Drink Soda

The ballsiest among us might also be the most soda-fueled among us. Because according to a new study, Coke and Pepsi consumption can make your testicles bigger, and maybe even increase your testosterone levels.

To reach this finding, scientists from Northwest Minzu University in China divided male mice into groups that either only drank water, or drank varying levels of Coca-Cola and Pepsi over the course of 15 days. During this time, blood tests were taken and testis were measured periodically. By Day 15, the balls of the mice who only drank Pepsi or Coke “significantly increased,” the study authors wrote. Moreover, the “the concentrations of serum testosterone in all mice were enhanced after the Pepsi-Cola and Coca-Cola treatment,” which “indicated that high doses of Pepsi and Coca-Cola could improve testosterone secretion of male mice.”

Overall, “drinking Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola could promote testis development, enhance testosterone secretion and increase serum (epidermal growth factor) concentrations,” the researchers concluded. 

After all, it takes a big set of balls to battle the other stuff soda does to your body, perhaps giant testicles being the only thing that can combat soda’s final boss of weight gain, diabetes and heart disease.
