Facts about Soda Pop

6 Dangers of drinking soda pop

  The most dangerous drink in America may surprise you. It’s non-alcoholic, but it is highly addictive: Soda Pop. In a time where obesity is one of the country’s most prevalent health concerns, soda pop is the number one source of excess calories in the America diet. 
   That’s a LOT of sugar… One 20-ounce bottle of regular pop can have between 10 and 17 teaspoons of sugar and up to 290 calories. Over the course of a year, an average adult can consume the equivalent of 30 pounds of added weight simply by drinking one regular pop per day.
  And a LOT of Calories. Adults who drink one or more sodas or other sugar-sweetened beverages each day are 27 percent more likely to be overweight or obese. 
   It’s Highly Addictive. And diet soda is no substitute – the artificial sweeteners found in diet pop, like aspartame, actually increase cravings, leaving you wanting more, more, more.
  You Drink IT, It Eats YOU. Human bones and teeth are incredibly strong. But Soda pop contains phosphoric acid, which weakens bones and rots teeth – corroding the tools you need to eat well and stay strong. 
  A Can Full of Chemicals. Aluminum cans contain an epoxy resin called Bisphenol A (BPA) which has been linked to infertility, obesity, diabetes and some reproductive cancers. The dyes in the soda have been linked to impaired brain function, hyperactive behavior, difficulty focusing and a lack of impulse control.
