We often focus on the food we should stop eating, but what about the drinks which make about 30 percent of the daily calorie intake? We usually take for granted sweetened drinks, but what most of us know is that high-calorie content is not the real problem, it is something much worse.
We have listed 7 drinks you should avoid, to protect your health and maintain your waist line
1. Soft drink – soda, pop, carbonated beverages, soft drinks
the list of bad things about soft drinks is endless. These drinks account for more than a quarter of all beverages sold in the US, which makes about a 12-ounce can per day for every man, woman and child. Soft drinks are at least one third of the problem with obesity in children. In the typical diet of a 2 year old, carbonated soft drinks containing added sugar greater than cookies, candy and ice cream together.
Soda and diet soda reach the pH level of the acid battery charge corrosivity and erosion of tooth enamel.
diet soda causes dehydration, weight gain, depletion of minerals, diabetes, and of course, addiction to caffeine, but researchers have also found that this drink also It increases the risk of conditions that affect the cardiovascular system, including stroke, heart attack, and vascular death.
Soft drinks contain artificial sweeteners and usually marketed as a healthy alternative to sugar-sweetened beverages alternative, especially due to the fewer calories. However, the latest research has shown that consumption of these drinks leads to serious health consequences long term, due to the large amount of toxic additives and artificial sweeteners such as sodium benzoate, aspartame, acesulfame potassium, sucralose , and high fructose syrup calluses.
2. Pasteurized milk
The US is the largest producer of pasteurized cow milk in the world, and interestingly, it is one of the countries where milk is less consumed. The dairy industry eliminates raw milk suppliers from the market in order to increase the consumption of pasteurized milk, which lags behind most kinds of milk throughout the world.
Pasteurized milk is one of the beverages that lack nutrients, and it is misappropriately considered as a “perfect food.” Raw milk lovers have long known that unpasteurized milk is the only milk that is worth of consumption.
Pasteurization processing destroys enzymes, reduces vitamin content, denatures fragile milk proteins, destroys vitamins C, B12 and B6, destroys good bacteria, promotes pathogens, and experts link it to allergies, tooth decay, colic in infants, growth problems in children, osteoporosis, arthritis, heart diseases, and cancer.
All cow’s milk, regular and ‘organic,’ contains 59 active hormones, allergens, fat and cholesterol. Cow milk also contains herbicides, pesticides, dioxins — up to 200 times the safe level, 52 strong antibiotics, or 53 with LS-50, blood, pus, feces, bacteria, and viruses.
The food industry says that as the world’s population increases, the food production and distribution is balanced against the needs to ensure the chemical and microbiological safety. Scientists also believe that all foods must be irradiated, pasteurized and sterilized in order to protect public health.
Pasteurization not always kills bacteria for Johne’s disease held as responsible for causing Crohn’s disease, and most confinement cows are infected with it. Commercial milk is ultra-pasteurized in order to eliminate heat-resistant bacteria and provide a longer shelf life. Ultra-pasteurization is quite violent in which milk goes from a chilled temperature to above the boiling point within two seconds.
Propylene oxide is used in one of the pasteurization methods. It is highly flammable and toxic chemical used in thermobaric weapons. Canada, Mexico, and the EU, are some of the world powers that have banned foods treated with this chemical.
3. Processed fruit juice
The so-called “fresh” orange juice sold in markets is one of the largest scams of the industrial food producers.
Have you ever wondered why the popular orange juice, including premium “100-percent pure” brands, tastes the same every time you buy it, but is nothing similar like a freshly peeled orange?
Pasteurized orange juice takes up a lot of space. To protect it from spoiling and safe from chemical preservatives, companies “deaerate” the juice, or strip the oxygen out. Are you surprised? Wait for this one. Deaerated juice usually sits in million-gallon tanks for about a year before it is sold in markets.
Another shocking investigation also found that the best known apple juice brands are packed with arsenic.
Commercial American apple juice is made from apple concentrates, and 60% of the concentrates are imported from China. Many countries use pesticides that probably contain arsenic. It is a heavy metal that causes cancer and heart diseases.
Consumer Reports did an investigation about arsenic and lead level in apple and grape juice, and the devastating findings made the organisation ask for government standards that will limit the exposure to these toxins.
Fruit juices are not 100% juice, and the additives that extend their shelf life can severely harm your health.
4. Any artificially sweetened drink
Producers still use aspartame and sucralose in the production process of hundreds of artificially sweetened drinks, like cocktails, milk, juice, ice coffee, and soda. If you see any of these substances on the label of your drink, please do not drink it. These both are two of the world’s most toxic sweeteners.
Monsanto created Aspartame, and it knows everything about its health-threatening effects, but it funds the American Diabetic Association, the Conference of the American College of Physicians and Congress.
When ingested, aspartame breaks down into many poisonous substances. The intact aspartame molecule, and the diketopiperazine form are worse than any other poisons that arise from it during the digestion process, and the liver processing of digestive blood, which is brought to the liver through the portal vein.
The other poisonous substances are hazardous, but Aspartame in gums is the worst. Even the smallest amount of Aspartame in chewing gums has destructive and damaging effect.
During digestion, Aspartame is made into ten other poisonings, and except for that which goes directly to the pancreas, the others are delivered to the liver through the portal vein, and they are later partially reprocessed. Lesser concentrations of the poisonings are sent throughout the whole body, and eventually reach the brain, of course, in much lesser concentrations.
