Wake Up – Stop Drinking Cola

So if you know me, you know that I am about to embark on a massive crusade to change the way the average person sees nutrition, health and food.  In my mind, we need to pick the low hanging fruit first, so here is an easy one.

Why should you stop drinking cola and soft drinks?  Well, there are literally so many reasons, I could go on all day, but lets start with phosphoric acid.  Yes, acid.  Its contains citric acid too, but I am not too worried about that, I am more worried about the phosphoric acid.  Why?  Well, because its what they scrub rust off of aircraft carriers with.  Its the stuff that stone masons use to make etchings into stone.  It has a ph level of 2.8.  Your body’s ph level is around 7.35 in an ideal world, so do you think that’s a good idea?

Get That Phosphoric Acid Baby, Get it!

Here is what one big cola manufacturer said on their website about phosphoric acid, and i quote “Yes, CC does contain phosphoric acid (E 338). It is used as an acidulant to add a pleasant tartness to the beverage. Phosphoric acid contains phosphorous, an essential nutrient and one of the basic elements of nature.

Hmm, well that’s a interesting way to put it.  Oxygen is pretty integral to health too, but take it in the wrong dosage and it will kill you.

You have no doubt heard that you can dissolve a nail in 3 days with cola. Well that might not be exactly true, definitely in pure phosphoric acid,  but not cola.  That being said its still terrible for your body, terrible.  I mean its killing your body every time you drink it, so wake up.

This is your first of many eye opening messages about the truth and what you have been told and yes, they are very different.

-P.S.  we haven’t even gotten into the massive amounts of sugars and other body destroying chemicals in these drinks and not just cola’s and soft drinks but energy drinks and tons of others.  Stop being a sheep and start arming yourself with the knowledge that can save and improve your life.  Ok, I’ll get off my soapbox now.

    I know Coca Cola is no good for me, but I’m never giving it up.

    Don’t forget Aspartame, found in most diet drinks, which is also bad for you. Read on Wilkpedia about it below, especially the discovery & approval section. It’s caused cancer in lab rats!

    I don’t know how bad aspartame is for you, but the fact that it is made by Monsanto is enough for me to stop drinking any diet soda that contains it. Monsanto is one seriously evil company. (They are the creators of genetically modified seeds. When the pollen from crops grown by their seeds blows onto neighboring farms and infects the crops, Monsanto SUES these farmers for infringing on their patent — because the crops now contain Monsanto’s patented genes.) And Monsanto WINS these lawsuits!

    I’ll be switching to Splenda.
