    Earth to The Tribune- many things stimulate the mesolimbic (dopaminergic) reward pathway other than heroine which you have added here to purely add shock value: alcohol, nicotine and basically anything you can enjoy and get addicted to.

    Heroine ‘works’ as an opioid receptor agonist- a multifaceted mode of action. This ranges from inhibiting nociceptive pathways (pain relief) to stimulating dopamine release (making it addictive)

    Suggesting Coca-Cola and Heroine work the same way is just wrong!Recommend

    Indicating Coca-Cola and Heroine dont work the same way is also wrong. Moreover, addicts do not admit such things anyway :)Recommend

    And yet millons of people derive instant pleasure from coke every day. What is the alternate? A life of grim realities and plain water.Recommend

    Great, Heroine destroys nerve tissues while Coke is just a soft drink, Dont drink a 500ml bottle, just take small portion size, may be 100ml.Recommend

    One of the comments on the original blog post:

    I’m a Ph.D. chemist. I WAS a daily soda drinker. I’m not anymore but for reasons of lowering my intake of sugar in general. I’m enjoying the benefits of not drinking soft drinks, but for none of the inflated reasons that you describe. I find your statements, almost all of them, inaccurate agitprop to scare people into stopping their consumption of soft drinks at best, and flat out libel in an attempt to nudge people into spreading more lies, at worst.

    This commenter goes on further by responding to every single point raised by the original writer. @Lyndon is right. It is only about the shock value.Recommend
