The harm of carbonated beverages

The harm of carbonated beverages


Humans need to drink plenty of fluids in order to function normally.

Many people take this advice literally and do not drink pure water or mineral water, but rather sweet carbonated drinks.

Heavy reliance on these drinks can lead to serious health problems.

  1. Sugar and sweeteners.

    Sugar is a fast carbohydrate.

    One glass of lemonade contains about five spoonfuls of pure sugar.

    It quickly transforms into excess fat and settles on your hips and belly.

    And in hot weather, few people limit themselves to one glass of a soft drink.

    Sugar also causes tooth decay and cardiovascular disease.

    Warning.
    Many manufacturers recognize the disadvantages of sugar, so they switch to sugar substitutes when making their products. These substances can cause allergies and have a negative effect on the excretory system and the organs of vision.

  2. Acids and preservatives.

    Citric and other acids are used as preservatives and flavor enhancers.

    Consuming large amounts of these substances contributes to the leaching of calcium from the body, and this leads to osteoporosis.

    Acids also damage tooth enamel.
  3. Caffeine.

    This substance is found in carbonated energy drinks.

    They are needed in order to stimulate the human capacity for work.

    But such vigor quickly disappears, and in its place comes fatigue.

    When used regularly, the substance is addictive.
  4. Carbon Dioxide.

    Without carbon dioxide, this product would just be very sweet water.

    The gas itself is not dangerous, but it negatively affects the stomach and gastrointestinal tract.

    It can lead to an aggravation of gastritis, peptic ulcer disease.
  5. Food coloring.

    Typically, carbonated beverages are colored in bright, appealing colors to customers.

    Dyes can trigger allergies, even the most severe consequences.
What happens if you drink carbonated drinks everyday

What happens if you drink carbonated drinks everyday

The harm of drinking carbonated drinks daily is:

  1. Overindulging in sugar.

    In 0.33 liters of sugary drinks, there is a daily allowance of sugar;
  2. Fructose is actively converted into fat in the liver, which contributes to excess weight gain;
  3. when fructose is consumed, the feeling of satiety is formed later, so it is easier to overeat;
  4. Fructose can cause intestinal disorders;
  5. Preservatives, emulsifiers, stabilizers, and flavor enhancers can be allergens or triggers for allergic reactions;
  6. some beverages contain small amounts of caffeine.

People who have a slow caffeine metabolism may experience anxiety, tachycardia, insomnia, and increased sweating after drinking coffee and such a sweet beverage.

According to nutritionists, if we form a hierarchy of sweets according to their harmfulness, the top would be sweet fizzy drinks.

Despite the fact that such drinks contain no sugar, they still taste sweet.

Why?

No one prohibits manufacturers from using its substitutes.

Studies prove that such substitutes provoke a similar body algorithm as in the case of sugar consumption, that is, the brain and hormonal system are still prepared for the perception of sugar.

Sugar substitutes also contribute to insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and overweight.

That is, they are just as harmful to the body as sugar.

It makes no sense to replace ordinary sweet water with zero sugar.

It will be even more harmful than the classic one.

Is carbonated water bad for your bones

Is carbonated water bad for your bones

In 2001, the results of an interesting Canadian study were published. They found that teenagers who drank too many sugary sodas (instead of regular water) actually had less calcium in their bones.

But scientists can’t say exactly what causes this: that the teens are abusing sugary sodas or that they’ve given up dairy altogether.

In 2006, the Framingham study studied more than 2,500 people.

One of the objectives was to see if soda had any effect on bone density.

It was found that women who drank Coke three times a week had lower bone density.

There was no such deviation with less frequent consumption.

As for men, regular consumption of cola had no effect on them.

As a result, no direct effect of soda on the composition of bone tissue was found.

Scientists suggested that the density of the minerals may be reduced due to caffeine or phosphoric acid.

But plain soda does not contain these components.

It is possible that phosphoric acid somehow affects the bones, but how exactly is unknown.

And even now, so many years later, there is still debate about how diet impacts a person’s bones.
