We all are in-taking fruit juices and thinks that these are enriched with vitamins just because there is “100 percent” PURE tag. All the juices which we drink have a lot amount of sugar in it. It could be a wondering thing that there is approximately 15-20 tablespoons of sugar in one 300ml CAN.
We think that only Cola is harmful and packed juices are not,but the reality is soft drinks also not have less harmful ingredients.
An experiment shown that when the teethe of human being are taken into Cola drink for two days,the teeth have decayed and calcium is lost to some extent.
If you think,you will brush our teeth immediately after Cola drink than that will decays a lot amount of calcium from the teeth.
Hard Drinks v/s Soft Drinks
We can define soft drinks as “which doesn’t have alcohol traces and have dairy products in it!!
What about HARD DRINK?? it is just reverse of above.
But in actual is a soft drink is soft??
NO, it is not soft to our health because not only,it doesn’t have vitamins but also it contains harmful chemicals such as flavors etc. which can cause adverse effects on our health like asthma,heart diseases,liver and kidneys infections and the most dangerous is Cancer.
Relationship b/w Soft Drinks and Obesity
There are many factors which leads to obesity including consumption of sweetened soft drinks. Even if we are aware of the harmful effects then also we have not stopped in-taking the so called soft drinks. Obesity can lead to many unrecoverable diseases for eg. Heart failure,Type 2 diabetes,Bone and joint disease etc. Obesity is the major issue in today’s youth which can lead to self-consciousness and embarrassment sometimes.
What type of flavors does it have?? AND Its Harmful effects
- Aspartame is 200 times sweeter than sugar,and can cause effects like migraine, memory loss, emotional disorders, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, heart palpitations and shortness of breath.
- Acesulfame-K (Ace-K) is 100-200 times sweeter than sugar,it can lead to cancerous tumors.
- Saccharin is a non-nutritive sweetener which is 300 times sweeter than sugar.it can cause bladder cancer and is banned in Canada, New Zealand and several European countries.
How these Juices are made!!
The extraction of juice from the fruits are preserved for a long period of time i.e. approximately,after one year manufacturing companies use it for packing into a CAN.
Because of preservation for a long period it’s flavors just not remain the same as before so, as to overcome this problem manufacturers add that so-called “flavors”.
Some of the cheap brand juice CANS and soft-drinks even not use this original preserved juice but uses water instead,with sugar and flavors.
We should prefer home made juices over the packed juices for a healthy lifestyle!!
