April 24, 1833 is the birthday of soda on this day soda water is patented in USA.
We all love it, and even knowing the harm of the product, we sometimes give it to children.
Well, for those who do not know, here is a complete list of reasons why these drinks are not good for our bodies.
- Carbonated beverages lead to obesity of internal organs.
If you consume excess sugar in the form of sugary drinks, there is a high probability that this will lead to excess fat on your body.
This is not talking about the appearance of fat that collects on your thighs, buttocks, and flanks (in the form of blubber), although it can be.
It speaks to the appearance of visceral fat.
This is a type of fat that accumulates around vital organs such as the liver, kidneys, intestines and stomach and is associated with type 2 diabetes and other inflammatory diseases.
According to an article, British scientists from Bangor University conducted a study involving a group of volunteers who drank 0.5 liters of soda daily for one month.
Of course, after the experiment, the participants themselves did not feel any negative effects on their health, but the results of tests conducted surprised scientists.
It turned out that although all participants were slender and trim people, all of them, after a month of consumption of carbonated beverages, had the same indices, which are observed in patients with the second obesity.
That is, the obesity started inside, around the organs.
Based on the research, scientists advise against drinking sugar-sweetened carbonated beverages, so as not to provoke a metabolic disorder and not to suffer from obesity in the future.
- Sweet fizzy water speeds up the aging process.
All the anti-aging products on the market assume that people don’t even want to age naturally, which means keeping a youthful body as long as possible, right?
Anyone would seem to agree with that notion.
But by continuing to drink sugary carbonated beverages, this process can only be sped up.
According to the website of public health and medical science of the Republic of Belarus, there is a link between cell aging and consumption of sugary drinks, according to U.S. researchers.
The scientists explained that telomeres – the end sections of chromosomes that protect from adhesion – shorten with each cell division.
In addition, it directly related telomere length to a person’s biological age and is one factor of aging.
It turned out that people who regularly consumed large amounts of sugary carbonated beverages had shorter telomeres than those who did not consume such beverages.
In the new study, scientists studied the effects of sweetened beverages on various aspects of cellular aging in 5,309 volunteers between the ages of 20 and 65 who did not have diabetes or cardiovascular disease.
Consumption of approximately 2.5 glasses of sweet soda daily was found to be associated with sped up telomere shortening and an additional 4.6 years increase in biological age.
This effect is comparable to that of smoking, and the opposite effect on telomere length corresponds to the effect of physical activity on the body.
Experts believe it is important to understand how dietary factors influence telomere shortening and lengthening.
The results of the study show a strong harmful effect of sugary carbonated beverages on the human body.
It is also known that all carbonated beverages (including their diet versions) contain phosphoric acid, which gives them their tangy flavor and increases their shelf life.
Meanwhile, excess phosphoric acid has been linked to kidney disease, bone disease, osteoporosis and even loss of muscle mass, because it interferes with the body’s absorption of calcium.
- Carbonated beverages lead to insulin resistance.
Our usual sugary carbonated drinks contain large amounts of glucose and fructose.
When the drink enters the human body, they activate the pancreas because of the large intake of sugar, produces insulin in large quantities, and this process leads to a spike in blood sugar levels.
If you drink sugary drinks regularly, insulin levels will constantly rise, leading to insulin resistance, impaired metabolic levels, and this can cause many diseases from diabetes to cancer.
In addition, regular soda consumption contributes to obesity.
- Carbonated water leads to heart disease.
Heart disease, also known as cardiovascular disease or diseases of the heart and blood vessels.
These diseases are the number one killer almost everywhere in the world.
It seems any of you wish you could live longer without looking in the drugstores, doesn’t it…?
As Channel Nine writes, sugary soft drinks, according to researchers, are becoming a time bomb, especially for people under the age of 45.
After all, it is at a young age that a person is much more at risk for diabetes or obesity.
The leading causes of death resulting from consuming sugary drinks are, in addition to diabetes, heart disease and cancer…
Heart disease also includes heart attacks, heart failure, strokes and others.
You can live with it for years and even survive a few heart attacks, but it can eventually lead to disability or severe old age.
- Sugary drinks increase your risk of developing diabetes
As mentioned above, consumption of carbonated beverages can lead to diabetes.
According to a study, consumption of various carbonated, energy or fruit drinks and sweetened iced tea caused 133,000 deaths from diabetes, 45,000 from cardiovascular disease, and 6.5,000 from cancer in one year alone.
Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian of Boston commented on these unfortunate statistics:
“In many countries around the world, so many people are dying as a result of diabetes, earned by the consumption of sweetened beverages.
Everyone should think about this and significantly reduce or eliminate such drinks from their diets.
There are no health benefits to them, and being able to reduce the amount of sugary liquids consumed will reduce the number of deaths by tens of thousands each year.”
Then there are the other negative consequences (the harms of carbonated beverages) is Alzheimer’s disease
- Sugary drinks lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
In one of our articles, we wrote about the health hazards of sugar.
And since carbonated drinks are full of it, their effects are close to those of sugar on our bodies.
Sugary drinks can increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease! …
Scientists in America found that mice who received the equivalent of 5 cans of sugary drinks a day had worse recall and twice as much brain damage associated with the disease as mice without added sugar in their diets.
This suggests that carbonated beverages may be linked to Alzheimer’s disease.
- Carbonated drinks cause severe brain damage.
Sugar substitute aspartame (E-951), an ingredient in some foods and carbonated drinks, is perhaps the most controversial of all substances.
Its manufacturers and government agencies claim it is safe, but a number of scientists and some evidence confirm that this is not entirely true.
What’s characteristic: The research for or against aspartame seems to be closely tied to who paid for it.
The interesting fact is that 100% of industry-funded studies concluded that aspartame is safe.
While 92% of independently funded studies and reports determined that aspartame is a potential source of harmful effects.
In an analysis published by the European Journal of Dietary Nutrition, South African scientists evaluated the potential effects on the brain of not only one of the components of aspartame, methanol, but also other elements (phenylalanine and asparagus acid), the Great Era Media Project reports.
The analysis is long and detailed and supported by more than 50 references to scientific papers.
In their analysis of phenylalanine exposure, the authors detail its ability to disrupt brain chemistry, including its ability to reduce levels of key brain chemicals such as serotonin (which can adversely affect various areas, including mood, behavior, sleep and appetite).
The authors point out that phenylalanine also has the ability to disrupt amino acid metabolism, nerve function and hormonal balance in the body.
They argue that aspartame is capable of destroying nerve cells, and that it can even cause Alzheimer’s disease.
These bad actions are already enough for us to avoid carbonated drinks, juices and energy drinks
- Caramel dye found in some drinks leads to cancer.
If you are a fan of Coca-Cola, Pepsi, or any other beverage, you need to hear this.
The most horrifying and recent data published by the Center for Science in the Public Interest in 2011 claims that a dye called “caramel” used in Coca-Cola and Pepsi can trigger cancer.
The fact is that there is nothing natural in this dye.
It has only the name of real caramel.
Caramel dye is the result of a chemical reaction of sugar with ammonia and sulfates under high pressure and temperature.
American scientists who studied these reactions in laboratories found that all of the resulting products caused lung and liver cancer, thyroid cancer and leukemia in lab mice and rats.
Scientists say the chemicals that cause cancer in animals pose a serious threat to human cancer.
Scientists began sounding the alarm and even demanded that the label be changed to one that said drinking these drinks causes cancer.
Coca-Cola and Pepsi have since claimed to have switched to other dyes.
However, they still contain dangerous levels of chemicals.
- Sugar in carbonated beverages is addictive to the same.
By the way, do you love your children?
Remember then, now, how many carbonated drinks you put on the table along with lots of other, not the healthiest, sweets.
Sugar triggers the release of a hormone in the brain that makes us feel good.
You probably know someone with a sweet tooth, right?
Now that he’s practically an addict …
But as Woman magazine writes, the research findings are truly frightening:
Scientists are increasingly comparing sugar lovers to addicts, warning – sweets not only provide fleeting pleasure, but are also addictive, eventually turning your health to ruin.
It’s exactly like being addicted to cocaine.
- Carbonated Drinks Will Destroy Your Teeth.
You probably already know that the orthophosphoric acid in sugary carbonated beverages interferes with calcium absorption and can lead to osteoporosis – a nightmare for your teeth, not just your bones.
But another discovery recently struck me.
According to the Startsmile network of clinics in Moscow, Chinese scientists have found that carbonated drinks, even those that do not contain sugar, cause dental disease.
All the assurances that diet soda does not damage enamel are just an advertising gimmick.
Dr. Chu Chun-hung, assistant professor of family dentistry at the University of Hong Kong, and his colleagues recently conducted a study among junior high school students and found that most of their teeth are prone to erosion as well as other serious dental diseases.
- Carbonated drinks lead to infertility.
This will probably be the most unpleasant news for young people who still, after so many negative facts, have not taken it all seriously. Many of them dream of having children, but …
It turns out, according to the medical portal, some carbonated drinks contain bisphenol A, considered a carcinogen.
It has also been linked to premature puberty and infertility. Just terrible news …
