As may already have heard, or read about, carbonated soda drinks are bad for you.

How bad you ask?

VERY bad.

Another high quality study, published this past March in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, showed that consumption of increasing amounts of added sugars in drinks increases your risk of heart disease … significantly … even in younger adults under the age of 40.

Quoting the conclusions of the University of California Davis study:

Consuming beverages containing 10%, 17.5%, or 25% Ereq from HFCS produced dose-dependent increases of circulating lipid/lipoprotein risk factors for CVD and uric acid within 2 wk. These results provide mechanistic support for the epidemiologic evidence that the risk of cardiovascular mortality is positively associated with consumption of increasing amounts of added sugars.

Now if this kind of evidence isn’t enough to get you to stop drinking über-popular soda drinks, it should.  And what are better alternatives?  How about the natural drink that our bodies rely upon the most … H20?

As our human bodies are comprised of 2/3rds water, that’s by far and away the healthiest fluid that you can drink without the tremendously harmful effects of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), and UN-friendly artificial sweeteners such as Aspartame.

So get healthy and give up the deadly sodas … it’s water time!
