The Effects of Soda on Women’s Health

We all know that soda (or ‘pop’ for our fellow Clevelanders) is harmful to our health. The perils of soda consumption have been extensively documented.

Some of the risks associated with drinking soda include insulin spikes, weight gain, and a heightened risk of diabetes. Diet sodas, which contain aspartame, are known to impair brain function. Consuming excessive amounts of soda has been linked to high blood pressure and heart disease, among other health concerns.

Scientists remain uncertain about why this drink is particularly dangerous for women. However, they agree that it’s best to avoid it. Continue reading to discover why.

With that said, the correlation is clear. The side effects of soda can’t be ignored. Ladies, by drinking water instead you can lower your risk for:

  • Premature aging. Researchers estimated that drinking 20 ounces of soda per day caused an accelerated appearance in age of just over 4 1/2 years, according to findings published in the American Journal of Public Health.
  • Drinking too much soda can lower potassium levels, resulting in irregular heartbeat function.
  • One of the main ingredients in soda, phosphoric acid, is thought to leach calcium out of bones, potentially leading to osteoporosis. In addition, women who drink soda tend to drink less milk, decreasing their consumption of bone-building calcium, to begin with.
  • Women who consume soda on a regular basis have an elevated risk of gout, possibly attributed to the associated sugar intake.
  • Soda consumption by females has been attributed to lowered fertility.

The negative effects of drinking soda on women’s health are undeniable. However, many women overlook these side effects due to habit or taste preferences. When it comes to women’s health, there must be a better solution.

Beat the Effects of Drinking Soda with This Alternative

Why are we still consuming this unhealthy beverage? Some suggest that women consume more soda in an effort to feel full or satisfy their sweet tooth and stay slim, putting them at higher risk than men. While we can understand this concept and have practiced it in the past, there is a better alternative: water. However, it is essential to ensure that you are drinking enough water according to your sex, age, weight, and activity level. This article, “How Much Water Should I Drink,” provides guidance.

We are not so naive as to believe that regular soda drinkers can easily switch to plain, flat water overnight. To overcome the negative effects of soda, a more innovative approach may be required. We suggest transitioning to sparkling water. It offers the same satisfying fizz without the adverse impacts on women’s health. You can even add natural flavors to enhance the taste.

Drinking sparkling or still water instead of soda will change your life. You will feel and look better from the inside out. Cutting down on the added sugar is challenging, but it’s well worth the effort to quit when compared to the harmful effects of drinking soda.

A Healthier Option
