Think about this…an average American drinks 45 gallons of soda every year. According to research, drinking soda contributes to the America’s obesity problem. Here are a number of reasons why you should think twice before reaching for that bottle or can of pop.

Soda fattens your body, and your organs too! – Denmark researchers found that drinking non-diet soda increases untraceable fats in your body. Individuals who drank soda, over a 6 month period experienced dramatic increase in harmful hidden fats (liver and skeletal fat), and their cholesterol level also increased by 11%. Also according to the research, drinking diet soda is not necessarily better for your health. All varieties of soda contain sweeteners and food dyes. These ingredients are linked to hyperactivity and brain cell damage. Also, individuals who regularly drink soda have a greater risk if developing diabetes.

Drinking too much soda has long term negative effects – High-fructose corn syrup is used to sweeten many American soda brands. This man-made ingredient is created from genetically engineered corns. New research supports that genetic engineering causes increased aging, digestive tract damage and infertility.
