Yes, I grew up on soda pop also and I drank it like it was the only source of liquid on earth. Problem is, I didn't realize what the health dangers of soda pop were, and still are!
At least 70% of our population claim to drink soda pop, on a daily basis…even after learning how unhealthy soda pop is to our bodies. Reason why? Addiction to sugar and the other chemicals used in the manufacturing process of soda pop.
As a nation, we continue to get fatter and fatter and the rate of disease has skyrocketed over the last 30 years. A big part of that unhealthy equation is how much soda pop we are ingesting! Here's the great news, we have alternatives to these rusting agents that push the health of our bodies in the right direction!
In the video below, I discuss the health dangers of soda pop and why we need to be eliminating these “refreshments” from our diets. And secondly, what can we do to eliminate those addictions and shift our bodies to craving pure nutrition instead!
5 Health Dangers of Soda Pop
1. Sugar: Sugar is at the root of an overwhelming amount of health conditions. From cancer growth to candida, sugar is the fuel that helps disease flourish. The average can of soda pop has 10 teaspoons of sugar per serving, which is enough sugar to spike one's insulin into outer space. Think about those people you know that drink 5-6 cans per day!? Even if soda pop had just one bad element to our health, and it was only sugar, it is enough to abolish it from everyone's “diet”! Here's the main problem, addiction to sugar is one of the worst addictions a person can have because it can affect every organ AND, people, in general, don't see the negative effects usually, before it is too late.
2. Fat, Fat, Fat: We are one of the fattest countries in the world and one of the major reasons, is our insatiable craving for soda pop. If the average person cut out, just 5 cans of soda pop, per week, the average person would drop a pound per week. We all know the negative effects of being obese, so why do we continue to drink this “refreshment”? Again, refer back to #1…addiction to sugar.
3. Phosphoric Acid: Soda pop contains phosphoric acid, which can halt the body’s ability to take in calcium and can lead to diseases like osteoporosis, gum disease, and bone softening. Phosphoric Acid also creates issues with stomach acid, which can slow digestion and block the absorption of nutrients.
4. Nutrient Deficiencies: One of the main reasons why we, as a nation, continue to get sicker and sicker, is because we think that the food we are ingesting, is delivering nutrients into our bodies. No lie, people literally think that a can of soda pop is a meal! Are you kidding me?! Yes, soda pop delivers CALORIES to our bodies to burn as fuel, but think about the type of fuel it is. It is like having a Lexus and putting regular unleaded into the engine. More and more, we are using high caloric food to make us “feel” like we have enough nutrients in our body, when really, soda pop (and other cardboard food products), have ZERO nutritional value.
5. Artificial Ingredients: Next to sugar, on the comparison of the health dangers of soda pop, artificial ingredients/sweeteners is right up there! In diet sodas, aspartame is used as a substitute for sugar, and can actually be more harmful. It has been linked to dozens of different health problems including M.S., tumors, diabetes, seizures, and emotional disorders in children (and adults). Essentially, the body converts “ingredients” into formaldehyde which, I am sure you realize, is horrible for our bodies.
Soda Pop Alternatives
Whether you take our advice or not, bottom line is; stop drinking soda pop! Again, I LOVED soda pop until I realized the harmful effects of these drinks and switched to much healthier alternatives and because I want to be around for a long time to see my children grow old. Unfortunately, for many people, they won't get that opportunity and part of it, is attributable to them drinking soda pop like it's water!
A soda pop alternative is anything natural, that you can be drinking instead. Obviously water is the ultimate replacement drink. Problem is, many don't like water because it doesn't have a taste. The solution? Fuxion products!
Fuxion products are 100%, COMPLETELY NATURAL, functional beverages. These products have no preservatives, non-GMO, and have zero fillers in them. They are pure herbal and fruit extracts that deliver an abundance of nutrients to your body.
As important, is the fact that Fuxion products are sweetened with Stevia. There is ZERO sugar in any of the Fuxion products. Since Stevia is a completely natural sweetener, one gets the natural taste of these herbs and fruits, which fulfills that craving for taste..and believe me, they taste absolutely awesome.
Finally, Fuxion products are less expensive than your alternative “natural refreshments”. From energy drinks, to coffee, to hormone support, to immune system support, and many more, all Fuxion products run just over $1 per serving. Amazing! Not to mention, there is a 100%, 30 day, money back guarantee, even if you drink all of the product. Therefore, no risk to give these life giving ingredients a try…
Point being, whether you want to switch to Fuxion products as your main form of refreshments, or something else (that won't be nearly as good for your body), GET OFF THE SODA POP and have the body become addicted to nutrition, instead of sugar!
