New Study Says THIS Is What Soda Is Doing to Your Body

December 03, 2015 2 min read

Some people just love the fizzy, sugary goodness of sodas. As kids, it was a treat we sucked back typically with the permission of our parents. If we were good or did our homework, maybe we got to crack a can. But as adults, no one is monitoring our intake. Do we drink away? INPOST-DIET At this point, we are all well aware that soda is bad for us. From our doctors to all the articles properly sourced with the proof we need, you'd think we'd be running for the hills from it, but some of us just can't help but drink up. And for those, perhaps we need a bit more of a push towards the healthy side. Did you know that, in just a mere 20 minutes, one can of Coke will make your blood sugar skyrocket, resulting in a burst of insulin? And, in 40 minutes, your blood pressure goes up and your liver “dumps more sugar into your bloodstream.” In 60 minutes, your zinc, calcium and magnesium are being stolen from your intestines by the soda's phosphoric acid, which then makes you pee it out. Moreover, before soda even hits your stomach, research says that it's ruining your teeth — even the sugar-free stuff. INPOST-SODA Researchers from  the University of Melbourne’s Oral Health Cooperative Research Centre wanted to find out exactly what sugar-free sodas do to your teeth, so they examined human molars that had been soaked in 15 different beverages, like sodas, sports drinks, milk and sugar-free sodas. Once soaked, the molars were checked for any changes in calcium levels, weight and surface damage. What they found was nothing short of alarming. [bctt tweet="New Study Says THIS Is What Soda Is Doing to Your Body"] "Therefore, banning sugar-containing beverages from schools may have positive health effects for reducing obesity, diabetes and dental caries but it may not reduce the risk of dental erosion," the team noted. They might even be considering a ban on these drinks in schools. "More than 60,000 Australians are hospitalised each year for preventable oral health conditions. The cost to the Australian economy of oral diseases is $8.7 billion a year. A growing body of evidence links oral disease to other health conditions including diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, kidney disease, respiratory diseases, inflammatory diseases and some cancers," they concluded. Are you a regular soda drinker? Do you prefer the sugar-free kind?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
