Sweetened Beverages Endanger Health of the Young and Old Alike
Fruit juice is often cited and used as a ‘healthy’ alternative to soda or other sweet drinks, but most commercial fruit juice is also highly processed artificially colored and often contains added sweeteners.
One in four high school students drinks soda every day, according to a national study recently released by the Centers for Disease Control. When counting other sugary drinks as well, the number increases to about two-thirds of students consuming a sweetened beverage daily.
“Consumption of sugary drinks is widely considered a problem and has been linked to the growing childhood obesity rate,” say boomer generation health experts Dian Griesel, Ph.D., and Tom Griesel, authors of the new book TurboCharged: Accelerate Your Fat Burning Metabolism, Get Lean Fast and Leave Diet and Exercise Rules in the Dust (April 2011, BSH) and the newly released, The Turbocharged Mind (January 2012 BSH). “A 20-ounce Coke, for example, contains 240 calories derived almost entirely from high-fructose corn syrup. These are totally empty calories and devoid of any nutritional value.”
“The good news is that many schools have stopped selling sodas or sweetened drinks to students,” adds Dian. “However, soda consumption usually starts at an early age and is introduced to children by their parents. Consumption at school is less than half the problem. Fruit juice is often cited and used as a ‘healthy’ alternative to soda or other sweet drinks, but most commercial fruit juice is also highly processed, artificially colored and often contains added sweeteners, making them almost bad.”
“Adults and children alike should choose plain water or other un-sweetened beverages for their fluid intake and needs,” says Tom. “This one step alone would do wonders for their health and waistlines.”
