7 Disturbing Ways Soda Wrecks Your Diet & Nutrition, Watchung, New Jersey

One-third of the American population drinks at least one soda a day, according to HealthDay News, but these drinks can lead to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. With such a negative impact on your health, the nutritionists at New Jersey’s NutriMost Watchung believe these drinks should always be avoided. Take a look at just some of the damage soft drinks can do to your health. 

7 Damaging Effects Of Soda

1. No Nutrition

Sodas are full of sugar, which increases the risk of type II diabetes and can lower immunity. They also contain empty calories, with no vitamins or minerals your body can use.

2. Major Organ Damage

Studies have proven that sodas can be linked to chronic kidney disease, heart disease, and a fatty liver or liver disease.

3. Dental Decay

Sugar is well known to cause cavities, but the acids in most soft drinks can also erode your enamel and weaken your teeth.

4. Weak Bones

Like your teeth, the rest of the bones in your body can suffer from soda consumption. Phosphorous and caffeine are common ingredients that have been linked to osteoporosis.

nutrition5. Obesity

Because soft drinks contain sugar, high calories and little else, consumers can quickly gain weight. Nutritionists agree that although diet soda has fewer calories, the sugar is every bit as harmful as regular soda.

6. Cognition

The sugar in sodas can affect behavior and cloud your judgment and comprehension. It makes learning and every day function less productive.

7. Premature Aging

Sugar can dry out your skin so that it looks older than it is, promoting wrinkles and other blemishes. The more sugar you have in your body, the older your body appears.
