Study: Colas, but not other carbonated beverages, lower bone density
What would you do to make sure your bones didn’t fall apart beneath you?
How far would you go to make sure your bones wouldn’t break: in the normal bumps of an average day; under your own weight?
According to this study, there is a very simple solution that can bias your bones toward a healthier, sturdier direction.
Don’t drink colas. Just stop.
It’s likely to be the phosphoric acid in sodas that’s pulling the calcium OUT of your body — so you body has to pull calcium OUT of your bones. But whatever the ultimate cause, we’re pretty clear that drinking colas can lead to porous bones.
Bottom line? Don’t drink colas. Just stop.
