The blog today is not dog related in any way but it does correlate with my suggestions for making better choices. In an article published by Jeff Primack called Conquering any disease-he makes astonding statments about drinking soda. Here are a few of the facts presented in his article:
The average American drinks more than 53 gallons of carbonated soft drinks a year.
The active ingredient in cola beverages is phosphoric acid in addition to carbonic acid which together forms a nice “rust cleaning” pH OF 2.8. It takes 32 glasses of water at a pH of 7.0 to neutralize one glass of cola.
Diet cola is no better. Your body believes it is staving because of the empty calories, so in repsonse the body holds on to calories and converts more to fat to compensate. Want to gain weight- drink diet soda.
All disease thrives in an acidic environment. In order to maintain an ideal pH of 7.4 in the blood stream our bodies will leach calcium( which is alkaline) right out of the bones and teeth to correct a too acid condition. Can you see the development of osteoporosis?
Soda with a pH of 2.8 is way over 10,000 times more acidic than distilled water. Can you see how this relates to making better choices for ourselves and our pets?
