Do you really think those bubbles aren’t damaging your body? You say you consume i in moderation or only on special occasions such as treating yourself or when you’re going out. Consuming soda whether it be in small amounts, special occasions, or daily you are still hurting your body in many ways! Here are 8 aspects of your body that are in danger and why!
Drinking one soda a day equates to consuming 39 pounds of sugar per year. Regularly consuming sugary drinks interacts with the genes that affect weight. Sugar-sweetened beverages are linked to more than 180,000 obesity-related deaths a year.
Having too much sugar in your die reduces production of a brain chemical that helps us learn, store memories, and process insulin. Consuming too much sugar also dulls the brain’s mechanism for telling you to sop eating.
The high levels of phosphoric acid in colas have been linked to kidney stones and other renal problems. Diet cola is increased with a two-fold risk especially when more than two servings a day are consumed.
The carbonation in soft drinks can cause gas, bloating, cramping, and exacerbate the effects of irritable bowel syndrome. Caffeine can also worsen episodes of diarrhea or contribute to constipation.
Soda consumption has been linked to osteoporosis and bone density loss, likely due to the phosphoric acid and caffeine in sodas.
Chronic diet and regular soda consumption leads to an increase risk of heart disease including heart attack and stroke.
The more soda you drink, the more likely you are to develop asthma or COPD.
The high levels of acid in soda corrode your teeth, almost as bad as drinking battery acid.
If these health hazards didn’t make you think twice before drinking that can of coke, maybe the thought that one can of coke can actually clean your toilet due to the amount of acid in it to corrode the rust/mild due build up. Take care of your body, the things we consume is our fuel, don’t put cheap gas in a Lamborghini
