We all have had soda once in our lives. I grew up during the soda craze During college I knew a classmate who drank nothing but “ TAB” Today we know the bad additives in soda which included saccharin and aspartame. The excessive artificial sweeteners make you crave more. There is also a cancer risk with these additives.

The ingredient, high fructose corn syrup is in almost everything that is processed including soda. It is a highly concentrated form of sugar, fructose derived from corn. Corn is highly allergic and genetically modified. It increases body fat, cholesterol and triglycerides. It should be AVOIDED in all foods

Did you know that the carcinogen formaldehyde is in soda. The aspartame in the soda will break down into methanol and formaldehyde. So you are literally poisoning yourself. The additive potassium benzoate in the soda breaks down into benzene which is another carcinogen.

The food dyes in most sodas have been shown to impair brain function and cam create hyperactive behavior. It interferes with your ability to focus and can cause lack on impulse control. Have you ever experienced this ?

Think twice before you have a glass of soda ? I know the television commercials and print ads make it so enticing BUT resist.

Until tomorrow…
