Yes, I have written about this before (Stop Drinking Soda).
For good reason: big gulp sodas are the root of all healthcare evil in this country!
And, we don’t just drink a little bit. On average, each American drinks 50 GALLONS of soda per year.
Yes. That’s five-zero – 50!! GALLONS!! Per year. Dang!
That would be ZERO for me, so some of you are drinking WAY more than that! Ugh!
There are HUGE risks associated with drinking soda pop!
Here are just a few known results of drinking soda pop:
- Soda is the leading cause of childhood obesity in the United States
- Is the #1 source of added sugar in the American diet
- Can spike insulin levels.
This increases your risk of Diabetes, and increases belly fat!
- You get nothing for the weight gain, for the fat, for the increased risk of heart disease and diabetes.
So, enough ranting. For some of the effects of soda pop on your specific organs, be sure to check my previous post, Stop Drinking Soda!
Here is an awesome INFOGRAPHIC from everydayhealth.com that makes these points again:
