Really? You're still drinking soda, soft drinks or sugary drinks? Don't know how bad they are for your health? Let me tell you, and don't think you're off the hook if you're drinking diet soda!

Sugar Feeds Cancer

Sugar in all of its forms, including high-fructose corn syrup, maple syrup, agave, etc., feeds cancer because it causes angiogenesis, the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor.


Loaded with Sugar

Loaded with Sugar

If you're drinking the "classic" versions of soft drinks, these contain sugar instead of high-fructose corn syrup. A 12 ounce can of soda contains 39 grams of sugar. That's equivalent to over 3 tablespoons of sugar. I bet you don't even drink that much sugar in your coffee - you'd spit it out and say it's too sweet!

Sugar Can Lead to Type 2 Diabetes

Research cited by the American Diabetes Association has shown that drinking sugary drinks is linked to type 2 diabetes.

Sugar Depresses Immunity

Glucose, fructose, sucrose and other simple sugars cause a 50% reduction in the number of white blood cells that engulf pathogenic bacteria.

Sugar Feeds Candida

Candidiasis is a systemic, whole-body infection with the Candida yeast. Sugar in all of its forms (fructose, glucose, sucrose, honey, agave, high-fructose corn syrup, etc.) feeds Candida, which in turn disrupts the immune system.

Sugar Decreases Ability to Concentrate

This Yale University magazine points out that a high-sugar diet leads to a lack of attention in children (and adults, too!) as well as an increase in adrenaline.

Sugar Causes Adrenal Fatigue

Cortisol, made by your adrenal glands, controls blood-sugar swings. Too much sugar can cause excess cortisol production, leading eventually to adrenal fatigue, where your adrenals can't make enough cortisol to get you through the day with enough energy.

Sugar Causes Inflammation

This Harvard Medical School article explains that sugary foods cause an increase of inflammatory cytokines. An overproduction or inappropriate production of certain cytokines by the body can result in diseases like heart disease, cancer and autoimmune diseases

High Fructose Corn Syrup Contains Toxic Amounts of Mercury

Chlor-alkali products used in the manufacture of high-fructose corn syrup leaves behind toxic amounts of mercury, a known neurotoxin.

Aspartame (Nutrasweet) Converts to Formaldehyde

Yes, that's right - formaldehyde, the known carcinogen that's used in embalming fluids. Aspartame is an excitotoxin that has been linked to the pain found in migraines, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and more.

The sales of carbonated soft drinks are slowing down due to their decreasing popularity and increasing preference for alternatives like bottled water. Also, the growing perception that carbonated soft drinks have negative health impacts due to their high sugar and caffeine content will also affect sales during the forecast period. The volume sales of popular brands of carbonated beverages, such as Pepsi and Coca-Cola, decreased in 2017 as compared to 2016 and 2015.

Players have been working on mitigating the negative image of carbonated soft drinks by introducing products that do not have sugar and are low in calories, such as Diet Pepsi, Diet Coke, and other products. However, the demand for such products has also remained low due to the negative image of carbonated soft drinks. The demand for soft drinks is expected to further decline during the forecast period. However, despite the declining growth, the soft drinks segment holds a dominant share in the global soft drinks market.
