This Poisonous Substance Destroys Bones, But Millions Drink It!

October 12, 2015 2 min read

In the U.S., this beverage is the most popular drink among people. It's sold everywhere, and is advertised constantly. It's not just about the dangerously high sugar content it possesses. Studies have found that this drink can actually destroy bones. Billions of gallons of soda are chugged back every day by men, women and young children. These drinks are known to contribute to the obesity epidemic and trigger hormonal imbalances which only lead to further weight gain. However, soda has some really scary side effects beyond health-harming fat gain.  

#1 Liver Damage

It has been proven that adults who drink soda regularly have a heightened chance of developing cirrhosis of the liver. The risk factor is similar to that of chronic alcoholics.

#2 Tooth Decay

Soda dissolves enamel at an alarming speed. This increases the risk factor for tooth decay by staggering amounts, and having rotting teeth can lead to other health issues.

#3 Kidney Problems

Kidney stones have been linked to excessive soda consumption. Soda's high amounts of phosphoric acid harm the natural processes of expelling urine, which encourages the development of painful kidney stones by 15%.

#4 Diabetes

Any food or drink that leads to obesity is bound to increase the risk of diabetes as well. Among Americans, the number of diabetes cases have tripled from 6.6. million in the 1980s to 20.8 million today due to beverages like soda.

#5 Heartburn

The acid level in carbonated drinks is the root cause of that uncomfortable feeling in your chest. But this can become more serious and develop into acid reflux disease, which wears away at your esophagus over time.

#6 Osteoporosis

As mentioned above, soft drinks equal soft bones. This is not a good prognosis for those who are aging. Soda actually strips your bones of much needed calcium and makes them weak and prone to fracture.

#7 Hypertension

Whether you drink soda once a month or once a day, it doesn't matter. The sugar and chemicals within it can spike your blood pressure and lead to hypertension.

#8 Heart Disease

Drinking more than one soft drink each day is associated with metabolic syndrome. This dangerous condition is linked to high blood pressure, elevated blood sugar, low levels of good cholesterol and ultimately, heart disease. Cardiovascular problems, including heart disease, are highly dangerous and often fatal.

#9 Intestinal Distress

Soda can wear away at your intestinal lining and even erode it over time. The acidity of soft drinks causes a vicious internal environment which leads to inflammation, which then leads to chronic illness. Not to mention the bloating and digestive upsets that sometimes occur when drinking soda.

#10 Cancer

These drinks have been linked to increased risk of three forms of cancer: throat cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer. Throat and colon cancer risk is elevated when soda wears away at a person's insides. The aspartame in many sodas increase the chances of breast cancer development, particularly in older women. The best way to give up soda is to replace it with good old fashioned clean drinking water. Overtime, the body will begin to regulate it's internal workings and flush out the toxins brought in by these beverages. What are your thoughts? Are you hooked on soda? Source: RealFarmacy

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 2-3 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.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
