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

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.

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?
