Drinking Soda Pop Contributes To Body Acidity

Monday, October 19, 2009  |  2 Comments

Scientists have found that healthy people have body fluids that are slightly alkaline, 7.1 to 7.5 pH. Scientists and doctors have also found that over 150 degenerative diseases are linked to acidity, including cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, gall and kidney stones, and many more. All diseases thrive in an acidic oxygen poor environment environment.

Keep in mind that a drop in every point on the pH scale is 10x more acid - i.e. from 7 to 6 is 10x, from 7 to 5 is 100x etc., from 7 to 2 is 100,000x more acidic, colas are in the acidic 2 pH range.

Almost everything we do including our life styles and our diets push us into the acidic range: proteins, carbohydrates and fats are all diagnosed down to acids. Even metabolic functions and exercise create some acids (Lactic acid). Body fluids range between 4.5 and 7.5 pH (your blood must maintain an alkaline range of 7.35 to 7.45 pH).

Will Cola & Sodas Kill?

Over the long term the effects of colas are devastating to the body. Acidity, sugars and artificial sweeteners can shorten your life. It takes 32 glasses of alkaline water at a alkaline pH of 9 to neutralize the acid from one 12oz. cola or soda. When you drink a cola or soda, the body will use up reserves of its own stored alkaline buffers, mainly calcium from the bones and DNA to raise the body's alkalinity levels, especially to maintain proper blood alkaline pH levels. This process of increasing body acidity can be devastating to your health.

Most degenerative diseases we call "Old-Age Diseases": like memory loss, osteoporosis, arthritis, diabetes, hypertension and many more are actually life style diseases caused by acidosis, or excess body acidity. Instead of drinking soda, start drinking more water - especially alkaline water - and contribute to your alkalinity, instead of stealing from it.
