Gulping cans of soda might appear quite à la mode, but alas! It ain't as fancy-pants when it comes to your health. We've known what happened to people who drank coke all day. Except for the excellent marketing publicity, sodas don't have anything good to offer to you and your body. YouTube channel AsapSCIENCE was worried about the constant rise in soda consumption and obesity cases in the USA and countries around and came with the conclusion of what would happen to your body if you only drank soda.
Let's check it out!
The high acid proportion in soda results in erosion of enamel of your teeth and gums. Since there's sugar up to 46 grams per can, you might also suffer from cavities.
High consumption of fructose and caffeine lead to the deficiency of potassium and thus all the fainting.
According to AsapSCIENCE, "Experiments have found that the sweet taste, whether from real or artificial sweetener, enhances our appetite." So Diet sodas are no healthier.
"Telomeres are protective caps on the ends of our chromosomes which shorten over time, and it turns out that their rate of shortening is nearly the same in a person who drinks 600ml of soda in a day," AsapSCIENCE warns.
According to a study conducted by Yale University, people who drink sodas consume more calories since they do not count added calories in their beverages. In addition, the main sweetener in sodas, the high fructose corn syrup is not metabolized the same way other sugars are, and hikes the calorie count in sodas. It results in increase in liver fat raising the risk of cardiovascular disease
