A 12-ounce can of soda delivers about 10 teaspoons of sugar, more than the American Heart Association's daily recommendation of 6 teaspoons per day for women and 9 teaspoons per day for men.
Normally, you'd gag on such intense sweetness, but the phosphoric acid added mellows the sugary flavor.
Not only does this phosphoric acid "trick" the body into being able to ingest this absurd amount of sugar, but it also binds to calcium, magnesium and zinc in your body. You'll soon be flushing those vital nutrients down the toilet.
By drinking soda you are literally ingesting astronomically high amounts of sugar, that the human body is not meant to handle, while simultaneously stripping your body of crucial elements that it needs to function properly.
And NO, diet sodas are not any better!
Please share and pass this along to help inform people about what they are doing to their bodies!
