Carbonated Beverages: Tooth Decay, Kidney Stones, Benzene Poisoning

There is also significant research to connect drinking sugary sodas with tooth decay.

Not only is soda acidic which strips the enamel from the teeth, the sugar from a soda hangs out in your mouth and attracts bacteria and decay.

People who drink soda have a higher incidence of cavities.

In 2013 the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology conducted a study that concluded that consumption of soft drinks was associated with a 23% higher risk of developing kidney stones.

Kidney stones are more than a painful occurrence that requires surgery. They can cause chronic bladder infections.

When the FDA took samples of 26 sodas they found that the majority of them contained benzene levels that were higher than what the FDA recommends.

Benzene is a known carcinogen, it causes cancer.

Despite the high levels, the FDA deemed the soft drinks to be safe.

Finally, drinking soda may cause stroke which can lead to dementia.

As you may be aware, the incidence of dementia and Alzheimer’s are at an all-time high which may correlate with the dramatic increase of soda drinking prior to 2002.

It’s also worth noting that dementia rates seem to be declining and that also correlates with a reduction in the consumption of sugary drinks.
