Soft Drinks Are Destroying America's Health

Posted Jun 04 2008 7:04pm

If you work in an office environment, have kids, or know people who drink a lot of soft drinks, then you will want to read this and share it with friends or family members. It's amazing how many people still consume soft drinks when there are flavorful, all natural health drinks that taste great and offer so many benefits.

My guess is that office workers need a mood boost, especially in the afternoon after a filling lunch has made them groggy. What they fail to realize or choose to ignore is how damaging those sodas are to so many different aspects of their health.

Here are some reasons to avoid soft drinks:

1. They work very much like a diuretic, robbing the body of essential hydration. A considerable amount of water is required just to process the high levels of sugar in soft drinks. To replace what is stolen, you need to drink 8-12 glasses of water for every soft drink that you consume! On the other hand, health drinks made with natural ingredients that have live plant enzymes will help your body use the water that you do drink more efficiently.

2. The high sugar content in Soft Drinks causes your pancreas to produce an abundance of insulin, which leads to a "sugar crash". Chronic elevation and depletion of sugar and insulin can lead to diabetes. This is particularly disruptive to growing children, leading to life-long problems. Kids will drink a natural health drink if it tastes good, and know that it will be so much better for them in the long run.

3. Soft Drinks severely interfere with digestion. Caffeine and high amounts of sugar virtually shut down the digestive process. That means your body is essentially taking in NO nutrients from the food you may have just eaten.

4. Diet soft drinks contain Aspartame, which has been linked to depression, insomnia, neurological disease and a plethora of other illnesses. The FDA has received more than 10,000 consumer complaints about Aspartame, that's 80% of all complaints about food additives. Liquid stevia sweetener is a natural alternative to sweeten health drinks and it is the one sweetener that is actually beneficial. Stevia has been shown to feed the pancreas so that normal blood sugar is maintained. There is absolutely no need for artificial sweeteners when stevia sweetener provides a zero calorie alternative, naturally.

5. Soft Drinks are EXTREMELY acidic, so much so that they can leach aluminum from the can when sitting on the shelf too long. Alzheimer patients who have been autopsied have high levels of aluminum in their brains. Heavy metals in the body can lead to many neurological diseases. Soft Drinks can remove rust from a car bumper or other metal surfaces. Imagine what it's doing to your digestive tract as well as the rest of your body. The Acid forming properties cause your body to work extra hard in order to balance pH.

7. Soft Drinks are EXTREMELY acidic: Yes, it is worth repeating. The human body naturally exists at a pH of about 7.4. Soft Drinks have a pH of about 2.5! Diseases flourish in an acidic environment. For example, the Body pH of cancer or arthritis patients is always low. The sicker the person, the lower the pH. There are health drinks made with ingredients that contain naturally produced alkaline food properties, and they taste refreshingly good.

Take the Alkaline Food Test to find out how the choices you make today influence your pH balance and your well being for life.

No sugar or artificial sweeteners in this health drink alternative. Naturally healthy! If everyone in America drank Fortune Delight instead of soft drinks, the health of this nation would greatly improve.
