How soft drink ruins our body
Drinking one small soft drink bottle in a day leads to consume 39 pounds of sugar per year. Which is one of reason that soft drink consumption is strongly linked to obesity.A recent Harvard study found that sugar-sweetened beverages(soft drinks) are linked to more than 180,000 obesity-related deaths each year, which means that about one in every 100 deaths from obesity
related diseases is caused by
drinking sugary beverages.
carbonation in soft drinks can irritate the digestive system, particularly in those who have irritable bowel syndrome. Carbonation can cause making of excess gas in the abdominal area, leading to bloating, cramping and pain.
Soft drink is also a cause of kidney stones and other renal problems.According to a Harvard study, kidney function in 3,000 women subjects started declining when they drunk more than two soft drinks a day.
Soft drink consumption has been linked to osteoporosis and bone density loss. While many suggest that those who regularly consume soft drinks especially in large amounts are not leaving enough room in their diets for healthier drinks, like milk and fruit juices.
Recent research has shown a relation between soft drink consumption and heart disease. Most recently, a 2012 Harvard study found that “one daily 12-ounce serving of regular soft drink is linked to a 19 percent increase in the relative risk of cardiovascular disease” according to the New York Times.
Soft drink is also a cause of tooth decay. According to the Colgate Oral and Dental Health Resource Center, soft drinks are among the most significant dietary sources of tooth decay.Acid and sugar byproducts in soft drinks soften tooth enamel which is the major cause of tooth decay.
