In addition to giving no nutritional value, soda pop removes nutrition. :/
Here it is in a nutshell, sugar/high-fructose corn syrup feeds cancer and makes the body acidic. Phosphoric acid binds calcium diminishing the calcium available to your body to keep your bones strong or in the case of children, growing. If you are drinking soda from a can, aluminum is a know cause of Alzheimer's Disease.
Carbonated beverages are hard on your teeth in more than one way. First on the tooth enamel, as soda’s are high in phosphoric acid mentioned above, but in this case, it depletes the calcium in your tooth enamel. Second, as mentioned above, the sugar/high fructose corn syrup content is extremely high, which also promotes cavities, especially in children.
Most soda’s are now made with an even cheaper and deadlier choice than sugar, and that is high-fructose corn syrup. The reason it is even worse is because it is made with genetically modified corn, it also contains mercury which can cause permanent brain damage and dulling. Princeton studies indicate that rats gained weight 300% more quickly by consuming high fructose corn syrup rather than when given fruit derived sugar. So you need not imagine what it would do to you.
So I hope for those who are still drinking soda pop or anything processed or made with high fructose corn syrup that you may think again before reaching for the next one. We are what we eat and the choices we make now affect us throughout life.
1 Corinthians 10:31 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
