5 Reasons to Eliminate Sugary Drinks

According to Harvard’s School of Public Health, sugary drinks are a major problem and contributor to poor health. Consumption is increasing primarily due to “creative” and continual marketing efforts.

Here are the 5 major reasons why people should dramatically reduce their intake of sugary drinks such as sodas:

  1. They have a negative impact on the teeth. Not only are they a contributor to cavities, the carbonation leeches calcium from the teeth themselves, making them appear slightly transparent and much weaker.
  2. Rsearch by the U. of California has shown 2 or more cans of any carbonated drink a day makes you age more quickly due to the shortening of the  chromosome-protecting ends of DNA called telemeres .
  3. Liver damage. Yes, it is not just alcohol. The Journal of Hepatology reported that carbonated beverages do as much damage as booze.
  4. Obesity contributor. This is the obvious one. The high volume of sugar is THE major factor in the obesity issue today.
  5. Daily consumption increases prostate cancer risk by 44%. Undoubtedly, it is a contributor to other major health issues as well.

Once in a while, a Coke or Dr. Pepper is rather enjoyable. When the “once in a while” become once a week, which becomes daily, is where the problems amplify.
