Sodas and Osteoporosis
Phosphoric Acid, Caffeine & Bone Loss

There is a connection between sodas and osteoporosis, and any good nutritionist will caution their clients to drink sodas in moderation or avoid sodas all together.

There are two chemical in soda that really affect bone mineral density-- Phosphoric Acid and Caffeine.

It is pretty well documented that the consumption of phosphoric acid is linked to lower bone density in epidemiological studies because the acid interferes calcium absorption.

Caffeine is also associated with decreased calcium absorption, so sodas with caffeine and phosphoric acid might provide a double whammy against healthy bones.

Check out this video that shows what soda can do to the calcium and shell of a hard-boiled egg.

Sodas just are not healthy!

Unfortunately, so matter what the marketers say, sodas just are not healthy for you. In America we drink way too much soda.

There is just about a pound of sugar in a gallon of soda, and some studies say that the average American drinks 1 gallon of soda a week.

Because of all the sugar, some of us have switched to diet sodas, but diet sodas may also be fattening and bad for our health.

Osteoporosis and Sodas

If you're concerned about osteoporosis, I think it's a good idea to cut back on soda.

In addition, 10 minutes of sunlight a day, weight bearing exercise, and a diet rich in calcium can help to ward off osteoporosis.

But the biggest boost to your bone mineral density may come from avoiding the harsh chemicals in sodas that attack your bones.

Yours in Health,
