Still Drinking Soda?!

on May 12, 2014

Still drinking soda!? Reasons to stop ASAP and keep your child from drinking it!

– Increases fat buildup around your liver and your skeletal muscles, contributing to insulin resistance and diabetes. 

-Drinking one diet soda per day over ten years, increases waist circumference by 70%.  Two sodas a day for ten years, waist circumference increases over 500%!  

Aspartame breaks down into formaldehyde when digested.  Causes cancers.

-Artificial sweeteners increase cravings and appetite.

Carmel coloring is cosmetic, NOT for taste. Contains two contaminants,  2-methylimidazole and 4-methylimidazole, that have been found to cause cancer.  16 micrograms per person per day is enough to cause cancer and most brown sodas contain 200 micrograms!

-Phosphates in sodas can lead to heart and kidney problems, muscle loss, osteoporosis, teeth rot and can trigger accelerated aging.  Manufacturers keep increasing the levels of phosphoric acid in sodas each year.

-Brominated vegetable oil (BVO) is added to soda and sport drinks to prevent the flavoring from separating from the drink.  It is an industrial chemical used as a flame retardant in plastics. Causes memory loss and nerve disorders, behavioral problems, infertility, and lesions on heart muscles over time. 

-BPA or bisphenol A is an epoxy resin that lines all aluminum soda cans.  BPA is known to interfere with hormones; causes infertility, obesity and diabetes and some forms of reproductive cancers. 

-High fructose corn syrup added to sodas is made from genetically engineered (GE) corn.  The crops have never been tested to make sure it’s safe long term.  GE crops are linked to digestive tract damage, accelerated aging, and infertility.  This corn syrup increases body fat, triglycerides, and cholesterol.

-Artificial sweeteners in diet sodas don’t break down in our bodies, nor do wastewater-treatment plants catch them before they enter waterways.  Every municipal water supply tested showed the presence of sucralose, not only contaminating drinking water but harming wildlife.
