For starters, it has a tendency to leech Minerals and trace minerals from both the bones and the teeth.
Look at your teeth, particularly the upper 2 front ones? Do they appear a little “clear” on the bottom (the contact surface area)? If so, there could be a problem.
It also may be THE thing that is the source of weight gain and/or the inability to lose weight.
What is being referred to here is the drinking of carbonated beverages.
While the fizz (the actual carbonation itself) of carbonated drinks such as soda or mineral water including Perrier and others, is not a direct contributor to weight gain, add in the amount of sugar that is included or worse, the artificial sweeteners and now you have unwanted pounds and the inability to lose them.
As a general rule, non-carbonated drinks are much healthier. In addition to the 2 factors mentioned – added sugar and the fact that the carbonation pulls minerals and trace minerals from the system – many of these drinks have added citric acid into the mix. This substance in this form is quite unhealthy to the teeth and even the bones.
Pass of the fizz. There are just so many other healthy options, why risk it.
