CARBONATED DRINKS - A SILENT KILLER

sss sdd When we think about carbonated water,two names come into our mind, one is Pepsi and the other is Coca Cola. This article doesn't mean to hurt any popular brands or its lovers.I am trying to go to the depth of possible side effects of consuming colored, flavored, bottled,carbonated drinks.

What is the need to analyze the effects of Carbonated Drink?

1. Rising Diabetic cases around the world, where the consumption of such drinks are pretty high.

2. Rising esophageal cancer cases in countries having higher sale of carbonated drinks

3. No valid clinical studies so far done about these brands to find out the extent of its danger.

4. Usually all drugs and medical formulations are undergoing studies to reveal side effects on long term use. Unfortunately, such drinks, even though they are being consumed by millions for a longer period, there are no sincere studies till now.

Possible Side effects of long term Carbonated drink consumption

N OSTEOPOROSIS

N CANCER

N DIABETES

N ACIDITY

N PEPTIC ULCER

How Carbonated drinks cause Osteoporosis?

Due to the high acidic nature of such drinks, the stomach usually gets irritated and the presence of calcium will  acts as an antacid to counter its irritation. This Calcium mostly get available from the food that you eat with the drinks. If you are taking drinks without food, i.e. on empty stomach then this Calcium will come from the natural deposits of Calcium in your body; bone, teeth etc. Now think about a prolonged consumption of Carbonated drinks that result in massive reduction of Calcium deposits in bone and there by resulting in Osteoporosis.

How Carbonated drinks cause Cancer ?

You should know that all such carbonated drinks are highly acidic in nature. The pH of water is 7, but these carbonated drinks are mostly in 2 – 3 range. When you consume carbonated drinks, then it may cause hiccups or burps or acid refluxes in the stomach that pushes the highly acidic fluid to the esophagus, resulting in lesions. Early lesions may precipitate cancer.

How Carbonated drinks cause Diabetes ?

These drinks are usually served with large amounts of sugar in it. This triggers the beta cells in “Islets of Langerhans” in pancreas to increase secretion of Insulin. Prolonged use of carbonated drinks will give additional stress to the Pancreas and thereby you also will become a  new Diabetic patient. (Antidiabetic drug manufacturing companies always cheers this.)

What else you will get after taking gallons of highly acidic carbonated drinks. Don't rush to your chemist for an antacid. Stop taking Carbonated drinks first and then keep your stomach cool for few days.

After reading all above facts, now you can guess how these drinks cause peptic ulcers. I am sure that not only Helicobacter Pylori, but carbonated drinks also contributes its own part in developing Peptic Ulcer in human beings.
