10 Reasons Why You Should NOT Quit Drinking Soda

47

You must be tired of hearing from health experts that soda is bad for you, that you must quit soda as it is as addictive as alcohol, tobacco and drugs, that soda increases your risk of cancer and so on. We are sure that you aren’t convinced and that you still enjoy your soda on a daily basis. You shouldn’t be bothered with what people say, just follow your taste buds and stay loyal to your soda – because when you don’t quit, THIS happens to you…

1. Your Heart Rocks, Literally

In 2012, a study from Harvard University found that drinking just one can of soda a day dramatically increases the risk of chronic heart disease. Soda lovers who can’t stop at one can are 20 percent more likely to have a heart attack. “Consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages was associated with increased risk of CHD and some adverse changes in lipids, inflammatory factors, and leptin,” the researchers concluded.

2. You GAIN…………………………………………… Weight

Drinking one can a day of sugary drinks translates to more than 1lb of weight gain every month. For each additional soda consumed the risk of obesity increases 1.6 times. Soda is a direct contributor to the obesity epidemic. If you ditch soda, you’ll ditch those pesky lovehandles too.

3. You Become Sweeter

A single can of soda contains the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar. This amount of sugar, especially when dissolved in water, skyrockets the blood sugar and causes an insulin reaction in the body. A diet high in sugar can interfere with a number of neurological processes, particularly those involved in memory making.

4. Your Kidneys Are As Tough As Stones

Drinking two or more soda-based drinks a day considerably increases the risk of chronic kidney disease. Soft drinks often lead to the formation of kidney stones because of their acidity and radical mineral imbalance. Your body must buffer the acidity of soft drinks with calcium from your own bones…. As this calcium is eliminated through your urine, it slowly forms kidney stones…. you’ve always wanted balls of stone, grow your pair today!

5. Don’t Worry About The Weight Gain. Your Bones Get Skinny!

Soda contains phosphoric acid, which interferes with the body’s ability to absorb calcium and can lead to osteoporosis, cavities and bone softening. Phosphoric Acid also interacts with stomach acid, slowing digestion and blocking nutrient absorption.

6.  Save Time! Save Money! No More Stress…. Get Death and Impotence NOW!

A few soda cans contain Bysphenol-A, or BPA, which is linked to breast and prostate cancer, metabolic disorder, impairment of the endocrine system, premature puberty, infertility, and Type II diabetes.

7. You No Longer Have To Fake A Smile

Drinking soda regularly causes plaque to build up on the teeth and can lead to cavities and gum disease. Soda also lowers the pH of the saliva, boosting bacterial proliferation and dental erosion. Diet soda is no exception. In a 2013 study, researchers found that a woman who drank 2 liters of diet soda every day for 3-5 years had the same level of tooth decay as a meth addict.

8. You Will Always Be High…. Sort of

Soda drinks are a major source of caffeine. High doses of caffeine can cause irritability, restlessness, tension, insomnia, high blood pressure, gastrointestinal disturbance, excessive urination, irregular heartbeat and other side effects.

9. You Will Be Made Breathless With Your New Lifestyle Options

Scientists have linked soda consumption to an elevated risk of pulmonary complications, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD). “The amount of soft drink consumption is associated with an increased chance of asthma and/or COPD. There exists a dose-response relationship, which means the more soft drink one consumes, the higher the chance of having these diseases,” researchers found in a 2012 study.

10. Beat Alcohol Addiction! Soda will Destroy Your Liver So Alcohol can’t!

There is evidence that consumption of too many soft drinks puts you under increased risk for liver cirrhosis similar to what chronic alcoholics have. Sodas contain High Fructose Corn Syrup. The process of making High Fructose Corn Syrup involves traces of mercury. High fructose consumption is directly linked to fatty and toxic liver.

  1. ah fuck it, i weight 60kg no matter what the fuck i do, i drink about 1/2 liters everyday and i am losing weight instead of gaining it, i tested my bones and they are fine, never broke a bone in my life, i don’t drink alcohol so my kidney can handle it, and i don’t want to live till 90 anyway so my heart can go fuck itself.. the only problem is the “making memories” thing but i haven’t noticed it, maybe my brain adapted?

  2. What the fuck is this for a mind twisting way of actually making people stop? You know alcohol is worse actually, so dont try it. I rather drink one glass or Coca-Cola each day and water, rather than alcohol. So fuck you.

    • Your body is perfectly capable of handling 1 or 2 glasses of wine or liquor every day. A small amount of alcohol may even have health benefits. The acidity and sugar content of a glass of Coca-Cola is actually harder to process than a glass of wine and Coca-Cola has no health benefits whatsoever.

  3. Alcohol has little effect on the kidneys, genius. It’s alcohol’s hepatotoxicity that’s a problem. You “tested your bones”? What miracle of modern medicine did you use to do that?

    • The most common test for tracking bone density time is the DXA (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) scan. A DXA (sometimes pronounced “dexa”) scan is fast, accurate, pain-free, and has very low radiation. A DXA scan provides your doctor with information about your postmenopausal osteoporosis management plan. Obs you have no medical background

  4. We have to die of something and I for one would like the sweet taste of sugary beverages making my days more pleasurable.

  5. Yeah, well, my grandpa smoked pipes, cigars and cigarettes as well as worked his way through a fifth of whiskey in a few days time on top of drinking Pepsi and he lived to 90. I’m damn near 50 myself and am somewhat done with shenanigans here on planet earth anyway. If a coke is gonna be my undoing then so be it.

  6. Everything in moderation. Soda is not air: You’e not supposed to INHALE it. Excessive amounts can and will be hazardous, regardless of what it is. Hell, even too much WATER is dangerous.

    I’ve had soda in somewhat normal intervals ever since I was a kid, and frankly, the only thing I’ve noticed is I’ve put on a few kilos.

    • I defiantly know the to much water part. I had water poisoning a couple years ago from drimking to much of it. No joke!! I was dring about three gallons a day bc I sweat alot and worked out alot at that time. I could not figured out why every movement I made, my muscles would cramp up. I could not turn to look for cars when Chang in lance without cramping up. Come to find out…to much water. But my problem is I do everything in excess. I stop drinking soda for a few months once and lost 37 lbs!!! No joke! But I was drinking a whole lot of it.

    • Lots of other liquids will make milk curdle, plus what does it mean for humans? That video is not an accurate representation of how bad coke or soda is.

  7. Everyone is different. I used to drink 2L of coke a day since I was a teenager. I was a little overweight mainly due to too much computer and not enough excercise. I figured if I stop drinking the soda I would lose the weight. Alas, it didn’t work like that. No noticeable change in weight when I stopped for more than a year. Scientists, myself included, overlook the fact that the human organism operates dynamically and each one is similar but operates vastly differently due to numerous bio chemical difference that it’s almost impossible to say that if it works for one it will work for all. Eat what you want, drink what you want, your body will tell you when you fucking up, listen to it! My 2 cents.

    G:)

  8. Same here, my bones are fine. I am actually underweight, I do agree with tho it will put a hole in the wallet from the dentist. Unless you floss and brush everyday. Everything is considered bad EVERYTHING even water but if you manage to use it all in moderation your fine.

  9. Sugar, Kept the roaches alive for millions of years. Can’t be that bad. I drink a 2 liter per day of Coca Cola, You may find me disgusting, but I will survive.

  10. how did humanity get so far.? the shit my grandparents at and drabk should have killed them in there 20’s how did the survive? are the super humans from consuming to mutch.

  11. wow, all I can say is that so many ‘facts’ of this article are just plain wrong. Who ran the ‘studies’ that concluded these results? were they double-blinds to reduce bias? Who funded them? (be surprised at what your results are when your funded by one side or the other)

    Yet another example of click-bait, yellow-journalism at its best. Yes, soda contains large amounts of sugar (real or artificial). But then, so do a lot of things we eat everyday without thinking about it. Fruit for example.

    Shouldn’t trust everything you read on the ‘net, and you DEFINITELY shouldn’t make health decisions based on that information. Bottom line, if you’re not sure, call your doctor.

    • Anybody that potential reads this in the future.

      FUCK the FDA, the AMA and any other state-approved “medical treatment(s) or providers”.

      As Thomas Jefferson once stated, verbatim: “”If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” (Sourced from the ‘Jefferson Retirement Papers’, Thomas Jefferson).

      If you’re a fucktard that believes that other fucktards in any form of government or establishment actually acting for your interests as a person, then do your faggoty scoff, dismiss the validity of Jefferson’s statement and blast-off in a glorious cloud of fucktard-fumes which are a result of all the hot noxious gases you bend over and take up the ass, minute-by-minute. Then, you can suck a chode while you soar onward in ignorance to claim your spot in fucktard heaven, as your base state of privilege has bound you unto, you fucktard.

  12. TOFI. thin on the outside fat on the inside. Check with a physician to see if you have concealed belly fat. Diabetes loves belly fat. Cheers. <-sarcasm

  13. I wonder who would benefit from such a study, the common man, I suppose because I see no benefit to any anybody else from such a study. Big pharma has the dough and they will never ever sanction such a study.

    I guess we should trust the mainstream media and their adds to tell us what to eat.

    and no. most doctors will not tell you that soda is bad for you.

    My grandmother lived to age 98, she had no hypertension, no diabetes, no cancers, no heart disease, no lung or kidney or liver disease. She wasn’t obese and she had an excellent memory and she read without glasses.

    She rarely had soda and she hated fast food.

    Her eldest son died a mere 3 years after her, he did like going out with his family to eat outside and he loved soda. Died of prostate cancer. Another aunt died recently who wouldn’t drink water while shopping but would drink soda instead, died 2014 of cancer.

    My whole family stopped drinking soda about a decade ago, but we drink a lot of laban a drink made from yogurt. Except for one sister suffering from asthama we are all healthy and normal weight. My Father 79 drives and does the shopping even now and my 72 years old mumm cooks for the whole family even now.

    No cancers, no diabetes and no heart disease-even though heart disease has been the family scourge and other uncles and relatives are afflicted, many much younger than my father. thank God our family renounced this artificial sweet poison and I don’t regret it. I don’t even find the taste good anymore, it tasted like chemicals recently when I took a sip and didn’t take a second sip. Horrible.

    So people don’t let the ads influence you, these ads are made to sell stuff and make the one percent very rich not only when you buy it but also when it makes you sick later in life. Most of all Don’t give it to your kids.
