I am so sorry if you stumbled upon this blog after searching for the aftermath of this epitome. I, myself have been Google -ing, trying to find any scientific truth that can support this. At least if its true, I can still take pork out of my diet and lose weight, not such a bad idea ey.
I was lurking on youtube, a video sharing website own by Google.Inc, when I found this video showing the experiment he conducted on his own out of curiosity.
Shocking, yes. But there is no scientific report to support this, correct me if I am wrong, send me a link, I would love that. So far, you will only get websites or even blog that says its true, its false and more video link of the said experiment.
To me though, this is truly a marketing scheme. Imagine this, after watching that video, I am sure the curiosity embedded in us will tick. We (maybe just me) will have the urge to conduct this experiment on our own to see the result in front of our own eyes. To conduct this experiment, you will buy at least a 500ml bottle of coke, and a pre-pack pork chop in local supermarket such as Giant or Cold Storage. Then you think, hmmmmm.. maybe not just the regular coke from Coca-Cola. Then you started to fill your basket with Diet Coke, Pepsi, local brand of cola flavored drinks and more pork chops.
Having paid all that, you go home and started to conduct your little experiment. Maybe maggots will come crawling after 2 hours. I dont know, I havent tried.
Trackback a little, do you realised that the video actually made you tick to conduct one on your own. This video have at least 1.5 million view. Lets pretend that every view is equal to 1 person, and lets say that only half of the people who watched tried conducting the experiment. Thats at least 750 000 bottle of coke being sold. Now, doesn't that increase the company revenue?
Don't even start on all the pork chops sold. The price for this particular poultry is already sky high. If more of this kind of video come up, we can pretty much say that the farmers are making lots of moolah.
But I found a website that actually state that it is not true with scientific reason on explaining on all this "maggots".
"The only way to birth maggots on your pork is to leave it outside. Coke has nothing to do with this urban legend. I have preformed such experiments in controlled environments and can confirm maggots do not develop due to the introduction of Coke. What you might see is:
1. Residue from the carbonation that has coagulated the protein structure of the pork.
2. Acids that have started to cook the pork and brought out amino acids that were inside the pork.
