About to Grab a Soda? 5 Reasons Why You May Want to Reconsider!

On warm days (or any day), you may want to reach for a cold soda. Before you do, read these five negatives of soda (you may reach for a glass of water afterwards!):

  • Sugar: It promotes inflammation and is also linked to obesity and pre-diabetes. 
  • High-fructose corn syrup: Never good. It’s an industrial food that is absorbed into the bloodstream and is linked to liver damage. 
  • Acids: Promotes inflammation of the stomach lining. 
  • Aspartame: Linked to brain tumors, birth defects and diabetes. 
  • Preservatives: Linked to allergic conditions. 

Reach for cold water or green tea instead!
