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.
