9 Healthy Reasons to Stop Drinking Soda
There are many health suggestions that advise us not to consume soda.
The reasons turned out to be diverse. Nothing wrong with us listening back one by one, to open our understanding of this. It is not like that?
1. Reduce the intake of nutrients for the body
People who choose to drink soda rather than healthy drinks will get less intake of nutrients such as vitamin A, calcium, and magnesium.
They actually get phosphoric acid that can empty the calcium and magnesium, two nutrients that maintain immunity in the body.
Make sure you do not lack the necessary nutrient intake.
2. The risk of diabetes increases
One can of soda can contain 10 teaspoons of sugar. Sugar intake is too much can lead to spikes in blood sugar, and cause insulin reactions in the body.
Drinking soda regularly can lead to weight gain, diabetes, and other diseases.
Soda also contains high fructose corn syrup that can trigger free radical production and is often associated with tissue damage, diabetes, and diabetes complications.
3. Damage the environment
Plastic bottles of soda and other plastic beverage bottles contain harmful chemicals called bisphenol A (BPA).
The content can dissolve from the bottle into the soda and into the body when taken.
Some evidence shows the impact of BPA on health problems, such as immune system disorders.
Public health experts recommend that children be protected from exposure to products containing BPA. Especially products consumed daily.
4. Add weight
Some people think diet soda is better than regular soda. However, the fact that diet soda also contribute to increase body weight.
A study of 1,550 people found that people who ate diet soda had a 41 percent risk of being overweight, or obese on every bottle of soda they drank every day.
Apparently, any sweet taste will signal the body cells to store fat and carbohydrates, which will make you more hungry.
Sweetness also raises the release of insulin that will inhibit the body burn fat.
There is also no studies that prove, drinking diet soda can help you lose weight.
5. Contains phosphoric acid
Phosphoric acid blocks the body's ability to absorb calcium naturally. Lack of calcium intake will make weakened bone resistance, osteoporosis and holes in the teeth.
This content will also be bad for acid in the stomach because it will block the absorption of nutrients and slow the digestion process.
Drinking soda can make the body dehydrated because of the high sugar, sodium and caffeine content in soft drinks.
Many people will consume soda along with food.
Therefore, most of them also do not consume water at the same time. In the end, the daily water intake is not met.
7. Dietary soda contains artificial sweeteners
Diet soda contains aspartame and can be more harmful than sugar.
Several reports indicate, aspartame is often associated with diseases such as heart attacks, brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, emotional gangun, and other health problems.
8. Not nutritious
Soda also has no nutritional content whatsoever. There is no positive effect of drinking soda except that it may taste good and refreshing.
9. Damaging teeth
Drinking soda regularly can lead to the appearance of dental plaque that will trigger the occurrence of holes and gum disease.
In addition, when natural bacteria in the mouth are fed sugar from soda, the bacteria will form acids.
The acid will trigger tooth decay and the occurrence of cavities.
