After drinking a soft drink, your body has taken in 10 teaspoons, or 100 percent of your recommended daily intake, of sugar.
This is simply in the first 20 minutes after drinking the soda.
Learn more below about how soda starts to affect other areas of the body over time. ..
A 2012 study from Harvard University revealed that those who drink 1 can of soda per day dramatically increase their risk of chronic heart disease (CHD).
A diet high in sugar can interfere with a number of neurological processes, in particular – ones that are involved in memory.
A study published in the journal of Neuroscience found that excessive amounts of sugar can also reduce the production of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) which can make learning more difficult.
Elevated risk of pulmonary complications such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD) have also been linked with the consumption of soda.
The sugar in soda bonds with the bacteria in your mouth, increasing the acid & weakening the enamel, & leading to bacterial plaque & cavities.
Soda consumption has been linked to bone density loss & even osteoporosis.
The carbonation in soda can cause gas, cramping, bloating & exasperate irritable bowel syndrome. Caffeine can also worsen episodes of diarrhea & contribute to constipation.
The Bottom Line…
While unhealthy habits are ok as an indulgence from time to time, if you are a big soda drinker – it is very likely that your daily soda intake is having major negative effects on your body.
Which is easier? Reducing your soft drink intake or fixing all of the above mentioned problems/affects?
Start by reducing your intake of soft drinks. Eventually go a full twenty-four hours without drinking one. Stretch that to forty-eight hours until you realise you haven’t drunk one for more than a week.
Your body & mind will thank you for it.
