Soda Aging You?

Wanted to share this link:

And, obviously, with any new research, you have to take it with a grain of salt and look at it critically.

Maybe soda does/does not shorten the telomeres of your genes .. But the link us there, and maybe it is that if you are the TYPE if person to drink 20 oz of soda, you are likely to engage in other activities that age you?

Either way, more evidence that food can heal you or sicken you. Your choice!


  1. I can't remember the last soda, diet or otherwise, I had. it's just too full of chemicals. Good post!

  2. Great post! I was a Diet Coke addict at one point. About about a year ago I decided to give it up. Wow, talk about the worst headaches I have ever had in my entire life. That artificial sweetener is poison! Best choice I made quitting soda.

  3. I used to be a coke addict, but now I rarely drink soda of any type. The only time I have it is if I am in a restaurant, and then I only have about half of it. I also only allow sprite or ginger ale. I get hooked on coca cola. I allow myself to have 8 oz. of an IZZE drink on occasion. It's fruit juice with sparkling water (no added sugar or artificial products). It has a nice "pop" to it, and is a good substitution that is a bit healthier.
