The summer season has come again, the very hot weather is here again. We often sweat so we also need cold drinks such as water, juice, shakes, and other cold drinks. Apart from these, soft drinks are also an alternative to quench their thirst. Did you know that a study conducted by experts found that Americans prefer to drink soda over other beverages? This is because there are many stores like this in the United States so it is more convenient for them to buy them than any market has.
However, as we all know, as many studies have proven, excessive consumption of soda and other soft or carbonated drinks is unhealthy and can have a detrimental effect on our health. Such drinks are full of phosphoric acid which kills calcium and magnesium, nutrients that would be good for the operation of our immune system. Another is that some soft drinks are also high in fructose corn syrup so they also contain high levels of free radicals that damage the tissues of our body. Free radicals also cause various types of diseases such as diabetes and cancer.
Apart from the actual content of soft drinks, even the packaging or bottles in which they are placed are not good for our body. Experts have found that plastic bottles commonly filled with carbonated drinks, as well as mineral water, contain a chemical called bisphenol-A or BPA. From the bottles, it will mix with beverages and enter the human body when it is consumed. Read how this drink affects your body on the next page.
