10 Diseases Linked to Soda

Need I say more?  This stuff is not only dangerous…it’s deadly.  I have posted about the dangers of aspartame before, and now comes more proof that this stuff will kill you.  Pete Egoscue had a quote on his Twitter page from health economist Eric Finkelstein stating that if Americans drank water instead of sweetened beverages, they’d be an average of 15 lbs. lighter.  And we wonder why we have an obesity epidemic in our country.  This is a no-brainer, America.  Your body is made up of 70% water, NOT 70% Diet Coke.  Did you know that folks in the automotive business use Coke to remove stubborn residue from car bumpers?  This is a VERY startling statistic from the blog post, and the numbers are from 9 years ago.  No telling where we stand today:

“(Sodas) account for more than 25 percent of all drinks consumed in the United States. More than 15 billion gallons were sold in 2000 — about one 12-ounce can per day for every man, woman and child.”

15 BILLION GALLONS!  Jaw-dropping numbers.  Read the rest of the post here.
