How Soda Impacts Your Body



Weight
Drinking one soda a day equates to consuming 39 pounds of sugar per year. Regularly consuming sugary drinks interacts with the genes that affect weight. Sugar-sweetened beverages are linked to more than 180,000 obesity-related deaths a year.

Brain
Having too much sugar in your diet reduces production of a brain chemical that helps us learn, store memories and process insulin. Consuming too much sugar also dulls the brain's mechanism for telling you to stop eating

Kidneys
The high levels of phosphoric acid in colas have been linked to kidney stones and other renal problems. Diet cola is increased with a two-fold risk - especially when more than two servings a day are consumed.

Digestive system
The carbonation in soft drinks can cause gas, bloating, cramping and exacerbate the effects of irritable bowel syndrome. Caffeine can also worsen episodes of diarrhea or contribute to constipation.

Bones
Soda consumption has been linked to osteoporosis and bone density loss, likely due to the phosphoric acid and caffeine in soda.

Heart
Chronic diet and regular soda consumption leads to an increase risk of heart disease, including heart attack and stroke.

Lungs
The more soda you drink, the more likely you are to develop asthma or COPD.

Teeth
The high levels of acid in soda corrode your teeth - almost as badly as drinking battery acid.
