"Carbonated" Drinks and our "Ovaries"


So today, let's finish this topic of drinking "carbonated" beverages with a few more devastating issues.


"Carbonated" drinks can cause "bloating" due to containing high amounts of "carbon dioxide". And when we consume these beverages . . . gas (carbon dioxide) gets trapped in the "digestive" system . . . which can cause uncomfortable "bloating", burping and even "cramping".


And if these "carbonated" beverages have a "flavor" . . . "phosphoric acid" is used to "enhance that flavor . . . and this can "interfere" with "calcium" absorption . . . which can cause bone loss.


Studies have shown that "excessive" intake of this "phosphoric acid" changes the "calcium/phosphorus" ratio and an "imbalance" of not only these 2 . . . but also the delicate balance of "acidity" . . . can occur. Which in turn . . . can result in decreased bone density, osteoporosis and fractures.


Okay . . . so what about our "ovaries" ladies???


Well . . . if the "carbonated" beverage has sugar in it . . . this raises "insulin levels . . . which confuses our "ovaries" . . . and this can affect the growth and production of crucial hormones.


So what does all that mean???


Well . . . studies have found that "excessive" consumption of "carbonated soda" have been linked to "infertility" in both men and women.


Yes, that right guys . . . men that consume soda regularly . . . are 4 times more likely to have a lower "sperm count" . . . therefore this can affect fertility.


And both men and/or women that consume at least 1 "carbonated" beverages of any kind per day . . . will reduce "fecundability" . . . and "fecundability" is the "average" monthly probability of conception


Meaning . . . that 1 "carbonated" drink per day for women . . . lowers "fecundability" by 25% And men . . . lowers it by 33%


Now . . . the National Library of Medicine said . . . "carbon dioxide" exposure "increases the in vitro growth of human "ovarian carcinoma cells" . . . with "ovarian carcinoma cells" being the most common type of "ovarian cancer"


You see . . . due to "carbon dioxide" in "carbonated beverages" being very "acidic" . . . "Carbon dioxide" (CO2) . . . stimulates "malignant" cell growth


So in closing today . . . maybe we need to rethink our "addiction" to "carbonated" beverages . . . even the waters and sparkling waters.


Because believe it or not . . . "carbonation" is "ADDICTIVE" and we just took this week to discover its effect on our body!


So why is it so addictive???


We'll . . . this is due to those "bubbles" adding "acidity" to the body . . . and with this . . . they send a message to the "reward" center of the brain . . . you know . . . "happy brain, happy brain" . . . and BOOM! We want another!


So have a great weekend . . . stay safe and be "mindful"
