SODA is a contributor to several issues to do with our health. Not only is it LOADED with listed sugar and hidden sugar, it is full of CHEMICALS.
New chemical analyses have found that Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Cola, Diet Coke, and DietPepsi contain high levels of 4-methylimidazole (4-MI), a known animal carcinogen.
According to the American Beverage Association American consumers on average drank just over 54 gallons of carbonated soft drinks each in 2005. That made carbonated soft drinks the most popular beverage in the U.S., almost three times more popular than bottled water, milk or coffee.
Among those who drink soda, the average amount consumed is 2.6 glasses a day, the poll found. Soda consumption was
higher among young adults, with 56 percent of 18 to 34 year olds reporting they drink at least one glass of soda per day, compared with 46 percent of people ages 35-54.
It’s not just the carcinogens, it’s the acidic content!
It actually takes 32 8 OZ glasses of ALKALINE WATER to neutralize the acidic effects of 1 8 OZ can of DIET COKE.
