A solution to a very serious problem!

SODA SODA SODA is the problem. Soda is addicting, soda is sweet and rots your teeth, soda is comprised of about 6 teaspoons of sugar, soda has no redeeming qualities. Your body is better off without it. Obviously.

Why is soda addicting? It is sweet and the carbonation masks it. As a result, it goes down easy. It is cold and refreshing (not) and goes great with any meal. But in reality, it is the devil in disguise. Why?

Soda is made with distilled water, and that means it goes through a process where impurities are removed. It has fewer minerals in it than tap water and as a result is anti-corrosive and can be used for many things. You can drink distilled water, but health officials advise against it. It lacks certain minerals that can be a benefit to the human body. Since many folks drink soda as a substitute for water or other liquids, and are not getting enough nutrients.

Soda has way too much sugar in it. You would not drink the soda if it was not carbonated. Try putting 6 or 7 teaspoons of sugar in 12 ounces of water and taste it. Nasty. Just think what the body has to go through when it is suddenly bombarded with all the sugar. Throughout the day your body will be going through so many sugar highs and lows. The result is fatigue, sluggishness and a downright yucky feeling.

Folks who drink soda have a higher chance of developing diabetes and being overweight. Bone density is also affected as a result of the lack of nutrients and because soda is very oxidative, corroding whatever it comes in contact with. We'll discuss all the bad ingredients in another post.

So what is the solution? It is very simple and is the best thing you can do for yourself and your family!

Drink Water!!
