People Are Using Coca Cola In A New/Dangerous Way

So there's a really stupid new trend people are doing to get tan really fast. Here's what they're doing, instead of using tanning oil, they're slathering COCA-COLA all over their bodies before they go out in the sun.

Apparently, the caramel color in the Coke helps bronze them up good and quick.

If you were thinking it's a terrible idea, that's because it is.

Coke contains a lot of chemicals, but none of them provide any SPF protection . . . so you're really just accelerating the chance of BURNING your skin and potentially even developing skin cancer down the line.
