Soda: A Bio-Hazard Drink

It is without a doSoda: A Bio Hazard Drinkubt that most people today have willingly replaced water with soda and other similar refreshments that are supposed to be healthier but at the end of the day have the same amount of sugar or calories. But did they really choose? It is interesting to note that in a family reunion or social gathering, the last thing a hostess will ever think to offer her guests is water. And many individuals find that even the slightest hint of thirst makes them crave and then immediately seek out a 64 oz Coke like a crazed vampire,  yet we all know that nothing really quenches thirst like a glass of cold, clean water! Why then, do we tend to choose refreshments and soda instead of water when we are thirsty? Why does it taste so good when it’s so darn bad? Because soda is specifically designed to be addictive!

There are two reasons why we can become easily dependent on soda:

First of all, one cup of soda, regardless of whether it’s lemon flavored or black or has the word “tea” added to it’s ingredient list in a last ditch effort to make you think it’s healthy, has around twelve teaspoons of sugar (the amount of sugar an adult should be consuming in a period of two weeks) and sugar can be as addictive as nicotine (proven fact). In fact, sugar is one of the three very scarce elements we typically find in the food Mother Nature provides for us (the other two are salt and fat). Because of this our bodies are tricked into thinking that it’s an energy rich food when it’s really not, hence the cravings.

Needless to say that consuming sugar in such horrific excess can lead to health problems such as diabetes, migraine headaches, muscle fatigue, chronic fatigue, obesity, tooth decay and many more. But refined sugar also happens to be the food parasites and bacteria strive on, and persons who suffer from athlete’s foot, Candida or yeast infections should steer clear of anything that contains it, most especially if on top of their “habit” they eat canned goods and take out regularly.

The second reason why soda is addictive is due to the amount of caffeine it contains. Just like coffee, soda provides energy for a short while giving you a false sense of well being that lasts around two hours. This combination of caffeine and sugar wreak havoc on the nervous system and energy level of an adult, not to mention a child’s, and in certain European countries such as Spain, a caffeine free version of Coca-cola and Pepsi are available for children, as it is considered barbaric to give a child caffeine and sugar (but a little wine with a meal is totally acceptable).

Sadly, many of the children in the US that have been diagnosed with learning disabilities such as ADD, are simply consuming two or three sodas per day on top of a very bad diet, or in other words two or three months worth of sugar intake each day. They also end up with 100% more caffeine-related energy than what they need or have any use for, so of course they have a hard time concentrating!

Last but not least, it should also be mentioned that dark sodas or colas, contain an ingredient so toxic that the soda has to be transported in special trucks bearing the “Bio-Hazard” label. This toxic ingredient is known as Phosphoric Acid and is very similar to car battery acid, in fact it’s its ugly cousin…and you’re putting it in your stomach every day! Phosphoric acid is so strong, the Highway Patrol uses it to remove blood stains on the pavement from car accidents, and ship yards use it to clean rust off from metal. Phosphoric acid corrodes tooth enamel, causes gastritis and de-calcifies bones. In other words: it’s poisonous.
