Sickening sweet sodas

(NaturalNews) Back away from the soda drink and no one gets arrested. That is, unless it is properly poisoned with officially sanctioned artificial sweetener. Then - go ahead, tank up because New York City Mayor, Mike Bloomberg is now pushing to outlaw all sugar sweetened drinks over the size of 16 ounces by March of 2013 - but intends to exonerate all artificially sweetened "diet" drinks. Keep in mind that this is the same Nanny State Mayor Mike who just helped pass out free donuts for the city's "National Donut Day" and also issued an official proclamation endorsing this dough-nutty event.

But will this really solve New Yorker's obesity woes? Not even, partly because artificially sweetened drinks are actually worse for your body overall then sugared drinks. None of this ill-contrived plan deals with the real issues of our desperate need for nutrition in our diets and lack of healthy lifestyles with exercise. Making sugared drinks a "whipping boy" is a distraction from the reality that soda drinks are just one small part of the whole problem.

Sodas - Which is worse, diet or regular?

So they are going after the sugared drinks saying they cause obesity. Well, they are right on when they say that sugared drinks contribute to the slippery slope for unhealthy and fat people. But the artificial drinks can be even worse. If you think diet soda is better for your health, think again. The only way you lose weight on diet drinks is by being sickened with the poison - not from some miraculous drop in calories brought to you by chemical companies.

Most diet sodas contain an artificial sweetener called aspartame. Aspartame is made up of aspartic acid, phenylalanine, and methanol and is some 200 times sweeter than table sugar. Dr. M. Adrian Gross, a former senior FDA toxicologist, stated before Congress: "Beyond a shadow of a doubt, aspartame triggers brain tumors" and, "therefore, by allowing aspartame to be placed on the market, the FDA has violated the Delaney Amendment, which forbids putting anything in food that is known to cause cancer... And if the FDA itself elects to violate its own law, who is left to protect the health of the public?"

Aspartame toxicity is often overlooked as a disease even though it has been reported countless times to independent organizations and scientists (Mission Possible 1994, Stoddard 1995). Patient and physician alike presume that worsening conditions are a normal progression of the illness when it can be in actuality, chronic aspartame poisoning. There are over 92 different health side effects associated with aspartame consumption.

Sick on soda

Research demonstrates that soda consumption, sugared or diet, enhances kidney stone formation with their high acidity and radical mineral imbalances. Your body buffers the acidity of soft drinks with calcium from the bones. As this calcium eliminates via the urine, it slowly forms kidney stones.

Easy carbohydrates like high fructose corn syrup put a huge strain on insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. The pancreas responds by secreting large amounts of insulin for the body to process them, placing heavy burdens on the pancreas, taxing its ability to keep up with the body's need for insulin.

Scientific studies provide evidence that soft drinks are directly related to weight gain. Researchers calculate that for each additional soda consumed, the risk of obesity increases 1.6 times.

A miracle solution to sodas - Drink water

People often drink sodas to quench the thirst. But that is probably the worst time to drink soda. Dehydration brings with it low levels of saliva needed to neutralize acids and wash your teeth clean. Drinking a single 330 ml can a day of sugary drinks translates to more than one pound of weight per month.

So, how about some real solutions to obesity... Healthy diet (without sodas and easy carbs), exercise and paying less attention to shills, whipping boys and shell games.
