Since the late 1990s, per capita consumption of traditional carbonated soft drinks has declined in the US, from nearly 53 gallons per capita at its peak in 1998 to 41 gallons per capita in 2014. Soft drinks are a multi-billion dollar product, and they account for a quarter of all drinks consumed in the United States.
A single can of soda contains the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar. This amount of sugar, especially in liquid form, skyrockets the blood sugar and causes an insulin reaction in the body. Sugar in Soda and Cola Soft Drinks will cause an increase in "empty calories". Empty calories are those foods and beverages which are high in calories but offer little or no nutritional value. This causes people to eat more because they always feel hungry. Their body is telling them that they need to feed the cells. Never finding the proper nutrients, the hunger becomes a vicious circle resulting in obesity
Phosphorus found in Soda and Cola Soft Drinks (pH 2.5) renders hydrochloric acid (pH 4.5) in the stomach ineffective. This promotes indigestion, bloating and gassiness. Carbon dioxide is a waste product exhaled by humans, but they ingest it when they drink Soda and Cola Soft Drinks.
Soft drinks are very acidic, especially Cola. In order to neutralize a glass of Cola, it takes 32 glasses of pure filtered water. It is well known by the medical profession that disease loves acid. If we could get our cells to maintain a normal pH (slightly alkaline), cancer could not grow in our bodies. Cancer can't live in an oxygen-rich environment. Cola drinks make our bodies poor in oxygen.
There are two main dental effects of drinking soda: erosion and cavities. Erosion begins when the acids in soft drinks encounter the tooth enamel, which is the outermost protective layer on your teeth. Their effect is to reduce the surface hardness of the enamel.
Most people have no idea just how much this stuff truly affects our minds and bodies. Consider giving up this poison if you still consume it. This stuff is garbage. Use it to clean your toilet if need be. 😷 #Consciousvibrancy
