THIS Common Drink Destroys Your Bones And Is Full Of Cancer-Causing Chemicals!

despite mounting evidence linking soda to serious health issues, such as diabetes, obesity, tooth decay and heart disease, this drink is still the most widely consumed beverage on the planet.

Only in America, over $75 billion worth of soda is sold annually. Read on and find out how soda can affect your overall health.

 

1. Soda Can Lead to Osteoporosis

To start with, all sodas, including regular and diet ones, are filed with phosphates or phosphoric acid which improve their flavor and extend their shelf life. Although phosphoric acid is found in a number of whole foods, excessive intake has been linked to heart and kidney problems, muscle loss, osteoporosis, and accelerated aging. Excessive levels of phosphoric acid also deplete calcium levels causing bone loss. In addition, the caffeine in soda affects proper calcium absorption in the body. In this way, soda reduces bone density and increases the risk of osteoporosis.

2. Soda Causes Fat Gain

A Danish study found that regular consumption of non-diet soda results in significant increases in fat accumulation around the liver and skeletal muscles. Both are risk factors for insulin resistance and diabetes. The results of the study concluded that regular soda consumption every day for six months lead to increased liver fat, skeletal fat, triglyceride blood fat and other organ fat, along with an 11% increase of blood cholesterol.

3. Soda Contains Cancer-Causing Additives

The brown color in most sodas comes from artificial caramel coloring, which is a popular additive containing two contaminants: 2-methylimidazole and 4-methylimidazole, both of which have been linked to cancer in animals. According to California’s strict Proposition 65 list of chemicals, known carcinogens, only 16 micrograms a day of 4-methylimidazole is a cancer threat. The alarming thing is that most popular brown colas, both diet and regular, contain 200 micrograms of this substance per 20 oz bottle.

4. Soda Causes Tooth Decay

Excessive consumption of soda leads to tooth decay, both in children and adults. In addition, the citric acid in soda damages the tooth enamel and eventually the dentin – the core of the tooth.
