Stop Drinking Carbonated Beverages
from Jana Mitcham
February 24, 2003
Any of you that have heard me speak or on one of the ''Health Show'' calls knows that I am on a campaign. A campaign to educate people about some of the negative health risks associated with ''fizzy beverages.'' Please read my next message titled ''Experts question inpact of 'healthy' snacks.'' It focuses on how these carbonated beverages contribute to tooth decay, obesity and even bone fractures. The bone fracture research focused on teenage girls; however, I do not think that the beverages purposefully sought out ''girl bones.'' That is just what the study focused on—so think about your kids of all ages and their individual risks.
Even though this article does not talk about the acidifying effects of the carbonated products, it does point out some of the culprits: phosphoric, citric, tartaric and/or carbonic acid—sounds like something to peel the wrinkles off your face rather than something you want to put into your body. One doctor described the impact of ''acids'' by saying that they ''sizzle your innards.'' Not a pretty picture; but what do you expect from something that people put on a car battery to remove the corrosion!
Please read the article and share it with your kids—if the health part does not get them—THE OBESITY PART WILL!
