What some people call pop, or soda, is really a poison that will cause Ill health in everyone who drinks it. Many people drink it as if it's incidental to their day, infusing their routine with the dangers of the many ingredients guaranteed to endanger our health. What it contains:
(1)Phosphoric Acid: this interferes with calcium absorption and may cause weakened bones and teeth, it also neutralizes hydrochloric acid in your stomach, which can interfere with digestion, making it difficult to utilize nutrients. So if you are taking calcium to make your bones strong, you can pretty much kiss that benefit goodbye if you drink pop, also since it keeps you from utilizing other nutrients you eat, well your food becomes merely empty calories, how do you feel right now?
Sugar: also called killer white sugar, why? Sugar increases insulin levels, which can lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, premature aging and many more negative side effects. Most sodas include over 100 percent of the RDA of sugar. And if that's not enough they also sweeten your fizzy drinks with lots of cheaper High Fructose Corn syrup:
High Fructose Corn Syrup HFCS high fructose corn syrup is responsible for a dangerous epidemic of obesity and diabetes. People under the age of 45 are “children of the corn.” ...of the food industry’s high fructose corn syrup. They were children or young adults in the late 70s, 80s and 90s when high fructose corn syrup was introduced to the American food supply as a cheap replacement for sugar. Now many of them are struggling with an epidemic of obesity and diabetes, also being referred to as diabesity.
It puts people at risk for metabolic syndrome. According to the Mayo Clinic, "Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Having just one of these conditions — increased blood pressure, elevated insulin levels, excess body fat around the waist or abnormal cholesterol levels — contributes to your risk of serious disease. In combination, your risk is even greater." People who use HFCS as a sweetener increase their triglycerides 32 percent relative to people who use mostly sugar, it doesn't trigger the satiation mechanism that tells us, I'm full, I've had enough, so we tend to really overdo our eating. There is a a rise in uric acid in the bloodstream that occurs after fructose is consumed. The temporary spike of HFCS blocks the action of insulin, which typically regulates how body cells use and store sugar and other food nutrients for energy. If uric acid levels are frequently elevated, over time features of metabolic syndrome may develop, including high blood pressure, obesity and elevated blood cholesterol levels. Older people may have something to worry about also. The leading theory about the cause of Alzheimer's Disease implicates insulin. Insulin concentrations in the brain drop significantly in early Alzheimer's and continue to fall as the disease worsens, suggesting that Alzheimer's Disease may be Type 3 diabetes. Researchers found that insulin is not just produced in the pancreas, but also in the brain.
Aspartame: This chemical is used as a sugar substitute in diet soda. There are over 92 different health side effects associated with aspartame consumption including brain tumors, birth defects, diabetes, emotional disorders and epilepsy/seizures. Further, when aspartame is stored for long periods of time or kept in warm areas it changes to methanol, an alcohol that converts to formaldehyde and formic acid, which are known carcinogens.
Caffeine: Caffeinated drinks can cause jitters, insomnia, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, elevated blood cholesterol levels, vitamin and mineral depletion, breast lumps, birth defects, and perhaps some forms of cancer.
Sodium benzoate:: Soda could be doing more damage than you think Credit: unknown Copyright: unknown Enlarge + According to recent research, carried out by Sheffield University in the UK, a preservative that is commonly found in soft drinks can cause essential parts of human DNA to stop working, leading to serious health problems.It can lead to cancer, Parkinson's and cirrhosis of the Liver, by damaging the mitochondria... yummy!

"The mitochondria consumes the oxygen to give you energy and if you damage it - as happens in a number if diseased states - then the cell starts to malfunction very seriously. And there is a whole array of diseases that are now being tied to damage to this DNA - Parkinson's and quite a lot of neuro-degenerative diseases, but above all the whole process of ageing."
tap water: used in making soda can include so many impurities they are too numerous to name, chemicals like chlorine and Fluoride, bacteria, viruses, fungal agents, parasites, and of course there is all that medicine we have recently learned that is a big part of our tap water. I drink filtered water on-the-go with pure-go filtering water bottles

"Well," the rabbit said,
Two little old ladies were sitting in church one Sunday dressed in their very best.
The pastor had gotten long winded and they begin to twitch and squirm.
One of the little ladies leaned to the other and said, "My behind has gone to sleep."
The other leaned back over and replied, "I know because I've heard it snore three times already."

The airliner approached its destination to find a thick fog blanketing the area. Unfortunately as they descended, the radar direction system failed, leaving no way to find their runway. They were literally flying blind.
Seeing a guy on the top floor of an office building, the copilot stuck his head out the window and called out in desperation,
"Where am I??"
The man called back "You're in a plane!"
With this, the copilot shut the window and confidently called, "118 degrees, six miles. Go!" Sure enough, this info put them squarely and safely on the Sea-Tac tarmac.
His partner was stunned. "How did you figure that out?"
"Well, the guy in the building just gave me info that was both technically correct and entirely useless. That tells me he was in the Microsoft Tech Support building, and I went from there."
MY LIVING WILL
Last night my sister and I were sitting in the den and I said to her, "I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle to keep me alive. That would be no quality of life at all. If that ever happens, just pull the plug."
So she got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out my wine.
She's such a brat!
My blessing for you is that you live in peace, and find your joy is simple things, that your meat is truth and your drink is living water.
