Soft Drinks

Q. Are soft drinks harmful?


Yes, soft drinks are harmful.

Both regular and diet soda are high in calories and sugar, and have no nutritional value. Replacing soft drinks with water may help shed pounds and a multitude of other health conditions (such as metabolic syndrome, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, etc). Recent studies even suggest an association with pancreatic cancer as the high sugar content may cause the pancreas to react to the increase insulin and promote cancer cell growth.

    Soft drinks are unnecessary and not conducive to good health Soft drinks contain no nutrients and do not benefit one’s health. They do not come from nature; they are factory-processed liquids filled with sketchy ingredients. Does anyone even know what high-fructose corn syrup actually IS? Soft drinks stain your teeth and are detrimental to dental health (happy wheels). It has even been proposed that the ingredients used in soda have carcinogenic properties. Let us not forget that soft drinks do not taste good at all. They taste artificial (because they are)!
