Finally Something You Can Do With Soda

I don't recommend drinking soda (or even giving it away to a relative or neighbor you don't like), but there are some very practical things you can do with it.

The Bachelor Guy offers a list of 34 potential uses for soda, none of which have anything to do with actually drinking the stuff.

Practical uses for soda include:

  • Cleaning your dirty toilet bowl
  • Removing grease, milk or blood stains from clothes
  • Stopping a jellyfish sting from stinging
  • Getting gum out of your hair
  • Getting rid of skunk odor

Dr. Mercola's Comment:

There's a reason why not one of the 34 suggested uses in the above link involves actually ingesting the product: soda is plagued with
real dangers. Drinking just one soda a day can increase your risk of being obese by a whopping 60 percent and your risk of diabetes by 85 percent!

On top of that, soda drinkers have a higher
throat cancer risk, and many varieties of soda contain a preservative that has the ability to switch off vital parts of your DNA.

If you thought diet soda was better, think again.  After carefully reviewing this topic for years I am convinced that artificially sweeteneed soda is certainly worse.

Your body was simply not designed to be exposed to the artificial chemical sweeteners used in diet sodas, and they can result in terrible side effects. For example, there are over 92 different health side effects associated with aspartame (Equal) consumption, including brain tumors, birth defects, diabetes, emotional disorders and epilepsy/seizures.

In spite of all of the dangers, consumers spend down more than $60 billion each year on soda. One of every four drinks consumed is a soft drink, and the annual consumption in the U.S. averages out to more than 56 gallons for every for every man, woman and child.  High fructose corn syrup in soda is, in fact, the number one source of calories in the US.

If you struggle with an addiction to soda, I strongly recommend you consider Turbo Tapping, a simple yet highly effective tool that will help you stop this health-harming habit. A glass of fresh clean water with a squeeze of lemon or lime makes a great soda alternative any day!
