Beverages – Information on Beverages good and bad.

which have come into our body, are digested mainly into fat.

Of course, the world’s outbreak of obesity that is being spoken

of a lot now hasn’t been caused only by the popularity of pops;

it’s evidently a complex problem. But is it reasonable to add more

problems to the body that has a hard time anyway?

Tooth decay.

The study of case histories of more than 3,200 Americans showed that

there is a direct connection between sparkling beverage consumption and

cavities (analogical researches confirmed the presence of this dependence

in the whole world from Sweden to Iraq). Not only sugar and sweeteners

are to be blamed for that, the fact that it’s the acid that decays

enamel has been heard by everyone due to the numerous advertisements.

Any kind of pop contains acid, starting with a relatively harmless carbonic

one (which breaks up into gas and water almost immediately) and finishing

with orthophosphoric acid which can even dissolve nails, not to mention


Caffeine dependence.

Only those who adore “qualitative pops” like Cola and Pepsi

have to be aware of this danger, since our brands “kolokolchiks”

don’t contain caffeine. But there is information available that

people who got used to having this “doping” in their childhood

cannot do without it as adults, and there is a large probability for an

adult to suffer from vascular dystonia and other unpleasant physical states

sometimes right up to real caffeine dependence. The “withdrawal”

which, of course, is not as terrible as the one resulting from drug taking,

but which undoubtedly exists.

The saddest thing about it is that manufacturers do not mark the labels

of the beverages as containing caffeine, and it is not a fact that only

Cola and Pepsi and their numerous “clones” have caffeine in

them (among exported sodas there is no caffeine for sure in Sprite and

7-Up). Sparkling beverage manufacturers claim that the bitter caffeine

taste strengthens the taste of other soda ingredients and that’s

why they cannot deal without it in the production process. “But,”

they add, “there is also so little caffeine in our pops that it

cannot have any officinal influence.”

However, the research held in John Hopkins’ Institute testifies

to the opposite. According to the scientists, the popularity of sodas

containing caffeine can be explained only by the formed psychotropic and

physical caffeine dependence. Only eight percent of people could tell

if the soda contained caffeine or not just by trying it.

Bone fragility.

Being an element of orthophosphoric acid, phosphorus can diminish the

content of calcium in bones. It’s not that dangerous for adults

who don’t drink liters of sodas, but children and teenagers experience

some certain critical periods of bone growth and even insignificant metabolic

disorders, which can cause serious health problems in the future. According

to the statistics of the Harvard Medical Center, 14-year-old girls consuming

large quantities of cola face a five time greater feasibility of fractures

and different bone formation abnormalities.

Less “poisonous” sodas increase this possibility three times,

and only those fond of milk can feel themselves safe.

We shouldn’t forget that everything in our body is interconnected.

Metabolic disorders and obesity contribute to calcium losses, digestion

disorders and absorption, thus adding chances of getting ill. Of course,

soda is not the kind of enemy for a human being like alcohol, nicotine

and tobacco are, and even a feeble person won’t be affected significantly

by a glass of pop. But if we keep injuring our body by having sodas regularly,

then the revenge will be severe and untimely. Just when we need our body

to strain every nerve, it will remember everything you have been wearing

it out with all the years. The following symptoms will reveal themselves:

overweight, teeth decay and digestion disorder, which interfere with a

full assimilation. Isn’t is better to take care of yourself well

in advance, then to grab a bottle of mineral water when you know your

kidneys have almost fallen down?

Health-giving Juices.

The majority of humankind, whom we refer to as the healthy “norm”,

treat nutritionists with an unfriendly suspicion. There are certain reasons

for that. Nutritionists deprive us of such simple joys as beefsteaks with

that wonderful crust on top and tempting creamy pastries, and they do

it with the indifference of a misanthrope. It’s exactly them who

make us think that anything tasty is unhealthy and anything healthy is

disgusting. But as far as juices go, they are loved by everyone, even


The juice that is freshly squeezed is an ideal well of vitamins, but

you cannot keep it longer than 10 days. All juices are low calorie due

to the glucose and fructose that are easily assimilated by the body. As

a nutritive and even curative substance, freshly squeezed juices are indispensable

for those who have problems with their stomach and bowels. A glass of
