WHY MORE MATTERS
SUGAR IS NOT SO SWEET!
CHILDREN ARE NOT HEALTHY
(OUR SEAL OF APPROVAL)
Teenage boys average three or more cans of soda per day with 10% drinking more than
five cans per day!
The average for teenage girls is more than two cans a day, and 10% drink more than five
cans a day!
Just one can of soda has over 10 teaspoons of sugar, 150 calories, 30 to 55 mg of caffeine, and is loaded with artificial food colors and sulphites.
Replace soft drink consumption with water
and get your children to do the same!
FOODS TO AVOID
Soda: Liquid Candy & Chemicals
Here are some of the harmful ingredients in soda:
Phosphoric Acid: This may interfere with the body's ability to use calcium, which can lead to osteoporosis or softening of the teeth and bones. Phosphoric acid also neutralizes the hydrochloric acid in your stomach, which can interfere with digestion, making it difficult to utilize nutrients.
Sugar: Soft drink manufacturers are the largest single user of refined sugar in the United States. It is a proven fact that 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.
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.
The average American drinks an estimated 56 gallons of soft drinks each year, and teenagers and children are the largest consumers of it. In the past ten years, soft drink consumption among children has almost doubled in the U.S.
