More Shocking Facts About Sodas Whether Diet Or Regular

Do you still need more reasons to get off carbonated soft drinks - Coke, Pepsi etc? Then you need to look at this website and read my previous BLOG Posts on the dangers of carbonated soft drinks. One of the most important, NOT mentioned on this site is the PH FACTOR.


Shocking Soda Fact #1: Soda fattens up your organs

A recent Danish study revealed that drinking non-diet soda leads to dramatic increases in dangerous hard-to-detect fats. Researchers asked participants to drink either regular soda, milk containing the same amount of calories as regular soda, diet cola, or water every day for six months. The results? Total fat mass remained the same across all beverage-consuming groups, but regular-soda drinkers experienced dramatic increases in harmful hidden fats, including liver fat and skeletal fat. The regular-soda group also experienced an 11 percent increase in cholesterol compared to the other groups! And don’t think switching to diet varieties will save you from harm: Artificial sweeteners and food dyes have been linked to brain cell damage and hyperactivity, and research has shown that people who drink diet soda have a higher risk of developing diabetes.

Shocking Soda Fact #2: Soda contains flame retardants
Some popular soda brands, including Mountain Dew, use brominated vegetable oil—a toxic flame retardant—to keep the artificial flavoring from separating from the rest of the liquid. This hazardous ingredient—sometimes listed as BVO on soda and sports drinks—can cause bromide poisoning symptoms like skin lesions and memory loss, as well as nerve disorders. If that’s not a good enough reason not to “Do the Dew,” I don’t know what is. (We reveal more insidious ingredients hiding on supermarket shelves in the 15 Scariest Food Additives).

Shocking Soda Fact #3: Drinking soda makes you a lab rat

Many American soda brands are sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup, a heart-harming man-made compound derived mainly from genetically engineered corn. The problem? Genetically engineered ingredients have only been in our food chain since the 1990s, and we don't know their long-term health impacts because the corporations that developed the crops never had to test them for long-term safety. Case in point: Some recent findings suggest that genetically engineered crops are linked to digestive tract damage, accelerated aging, and even infertility!

My Input:

There is an awful lot of evidence that should convince you to GET OFF any kind of sodas. PH FACTOR for various sodas listed here:


Here are a selection of the pH values measured:
  • Coke 2.525
  • Diet Coke 3.289
  • Pepsi 2.530
  • Diet Pepsi 3.031
  • Cherry Coke 2.522
  • RC Cola 2.387
  • Mountain Dew 3.229
  • Diet Mountain Dew 3.365
  • Dr. Pepper 2.899
  • Diet Dr. Pepper 3.169
  • Squirt 2.898
  • 7-Up 3.202
  • Diet 7-Up 3.706
  • Sprite 3.298
  • Mug Root Beer 4.038

(MY INPUT) the ideal PH balance for the human body is between 7.3 to 7.4. SEE my POSTS on Interstitial Fluid ( 6/6/11 "Interstitial Fluid and Type 2 Diabetes For Dummies") surrounding our billions of cells. Drinking carbonated sodas whether diet or regular upsets this balance and contributes to disease. SEE POSTS ON PH FACTOR: 1/24/11, 1/25/11, 3/8/11, 5/3/11 and 5/27/11, 8/7/11 and 1/20/12.


Matthew 7:9-11

King James Version (KJV)
9Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
10Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
