Guest Bonnie Posted August 2, 2001 Report Share Posted August 2, 2001 I have a question for you. :question: How many soda's do you drink each day? If the answer is none then you are a health consciousious person. My hat is off to you. For those of you that tell me that you drink one or more soda's a day, than you need to consider the damage that you are doing to your body. We are trying to get well. We don't need any more food junk that is working toward making our health worse. The amount of sodium, the amount of sugar, heavy soft drink consumption may interfere with your body's metabolization of iron & diminish nerve impulse transmissions. It interferes with your calcium which leads to weak bones. Sodas may contain but are not required to disclose such ingredients as ethyl alcohol, sodium alginate (possibly hazardous for pregnant women), brominated vegetable oil (found harmful to vital organs of animals & considered a health risk to heavy consumers of beverages containing it) & caffeine. Beware, if you have Cushing's, a pituitary tumor, certain tumors, kidney disease, adrenal or thyroid or pituitary gland malfunctions, even diabetes, arteriosclerosis or hardening of the arteries, you should avoid All Soda's. That means none, zilch, no drinkie for us who belong to this chosen group of peoples. This is a matter of life or death to some people because by consumption you are promoting your tumor to grow, to do damage to your kidneys, your stomach, your bones, your blood vessel, your heart, you are threatening your very existance by drinking a soda. One soda may not make you drop death but is the cumulative damage worth it, NOT!! Cola drinks can interact adversely with antacids, possible causing constipation, calcium loss, hypertension, nausea, vomiting, headaches and kidney damage. Soft drinks can decrease the antibacterial action of penicillin and ampicillin. Cola drinks contain caramel coloring which, according to some researchers, has genetic effects and is a cancer-causing suspect. Polyethylene glycol is used as an ingredient sometimes. Glycol is used in anti-freeze in automobiles and as an oil solvent. Perhaps you have noticed that pouring cola drinks on your windshield in a snow or ice storm will keep the windshield from freezing over with ice. "Cancer is like a plant cell; it can't live in an oxygen-rich environment. Cola drinks make our bodies poor in oxygen. Cola's contain phosphoric acid, citrus drinks contain citric acid. What is phosphoric acid? It is used in agricultural fertilizers, detergent additives, cleaners, insecticide production, pharmaceuticals, cattle feed additives & cola soda's. Is the mineral phosphorus a essential nutrient in our diet? How much is needed in our diet, what other sources of food do we get it from? Milk products, meats & grains, I wonder if this is related to the cattle feed? So we add certain chemicals, we have cleaners, we add certain other chemicals & we have ethyl alcohol or Ethanol, in Iowa they sell it as fuel better known as gasoline, we add other chemicals & we have soda, in the corn & flour businesses it is a preservative, in our soda's it is a preservative also. Remember that everything that is in the grocery store isn't meant for every human to be able to consume. Read labels carefully. Keeping a journal will help you to notice patterns of symptoms. :wavey: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
