What sodas can do to you…

http://buynongmoseeds.com/this-man-drank-10-sodas-a-day-for-a-month/

As humans, we are naturally trying to push our limits and learn what is good and bad for our bodies, our lives, and our minds. This 50-year-old man decided to consume ten cans of Coca-Cola a day for an entire month.

He did this to illustrate the potential damages that sugar consumption has on our bodies. “I did an experiment to get people thinking and talking about how much sugar they eat and how unhealthy it is. People need to be aware of the real and powerful damaging effects of sugar on their health.” The results as expected were disastrous; he saw his blood pressure rise, uncontrollable sugar cravings, weight gain, and so much more.

Earlier this year, the World Health Organization advised people to halve the amount of sugar that they consume daily, after Britain’s chief medical officer Dame Sally Davies said a sugar tax may be needed to curb obesity rates. Last month it was reported that many fruit juices and smoothies marketed at children contain more sugar than Coca-Cola, and this problem will probably only get worse.

People every day drink large quantities of soda’s and eat a huge amount of junk food and many people act like it is a surprise that out nation as a whole is getting bigger and bigger. Do yourself a favor and today skip the soda and reach for a water, you will thank yourself for it!
