According to the statistics from the recent study, Americans drink more soda than ever before. Mass produced soda brands can eat your bones from the inside out and this is scientifically proved. Regular soda brands contain up to 11 teaspoons of sugar per can. Here are some of the negative health effects of drinking soda:
Risk Of Kidney Decline
Drinking one quart of soda per week may increase your risk of developing kidney stones by 15 percent. Also, diet cola is linked with a two-fold increased risk for kidney decline.
It is quite clear that High levels of sugar in soda increases the risk of diabetes. Sugar puts a lot of pressure on the pancreas and therefore the body’s need for insulin doesn’t match the requirement.
Artificial sweeteners are likely to cause weight gain. Even a single can of sugary drinks per day increased almost a pound of weight every month.
Drinking more than one soft drink can increase the risk of developing metabolic syndrome.
Phosphoric acid present in soft drinks is linked to osteoporosis (a weakening of your skeletal structure). This acid increases the phosphate level meanwhile decrease the calcium level in bones.
High Blood Pressure
Overconsumption of soda leads to an increase in blood pressure. It doesn’t matter if the soda is regular or diet.
According to a study, there was a positive association between consumption of soft drinks and asthma/COPD among adults living in South Australia.
