Whether soft drink contains sweetner or sugar,it is very injurious to health. It hardly takes 1 Indian Rupee to make a soft drink,but its sold at a very high of Rs 10/- in India.
Why is it very higly priced? The reason being the money to be paid for the film stars,cricket stars and other famous celebs to promote it in advertisements!
It also acts as a root cause for various dental diseases,obesity,heart diseases,type 2 diabetes etc.
Yet we still see children,adults and people of all groups consuming it a lot.Recent study has indicated that there are also traces of alcohol in the soft drink!
Many countries are planning to ban the soft drinks and also the vending machines which sell soft drinks,but no strict actions or implementation is done yet.
Scientists have also pointed out that the amount of toxic gases and carbon dioxide present in soft drinks is very high by conducting an experiment with coke and menthos.
Scientists took a coke bottle,opened it and added 4-5 menthos into it. and the immediate reaction was that a huge fountain of toxic gases from the coke bottle due to the chemical reaction of gases in the coke bottle with the mint in the menthos.
This video is all over the internet and also there are chain mails showing this experiment and asking people not to drink coke with menthos.
This experiment also proved how toxic coke or any other soft drink was! Yet people turn deaf ears to all these warnings and experiments and devour mercilessly on soft drinks ! They think its “cool” drinking these soft drinks as their favourite stars/heroes are promoting it.
But what they fail to realise is that their favourite stars/heroes promote it for few seconds for money ,but we actually injure ourselves,our health and body just trying to ape our favourite stars/heroes!
Some may argue that they drink soft drinks to quench thirst,but i still disapprove it because,if you really want to quench your thirst,there are other liquids available like water,fresh fruit juices which are 100 times more beneficial than soft drinks.
Water has many advantages also other than quenching thirst. Water cleanses the body,removes all toxics from the body,gives natural glow to the body,burns down fat,increases metabolism and makes sure that all the parts of the body have enough water to perform their metabolic activities.
It has been adviced since ages to drink 6 glasses of water daily to remain fit and healthy but i seriously dont know how many people religiously follow it!
Now a days people are more concerned to be ‘cool’ and trendy and to follow the fad rather than being heatly,fit and fine!
