What's the story with "CARBONATED" and "SPARKLING" drinks?


Okay . . . so the question for today is this . . . why are we "SO" abscessed with "carbonated" and "sparkling" beverages these days???


Well first . . . it doesn't matter whether it's a "carbonated" drink or a "sparkling" water . . . they've "BOTH" been injected with "carbon dioxide" (CO2).


So simply put . . . it doesn't matter whether you're drinking soda, sparkling water, club soda, soda water, seltzer water or fizzy water . . . they all include "carbon dioxide" dissolved in that beverage.


Now . . . this "carbon dioxide" is a colorless and flavorless "gas" that gives a beverage its BUBBLES and FIZZ!


And the "carbonated" drink that contains the MOST "carbon dioxide" is????


You guessed it . . .


Coca-Cola . . . with a "volume share" of 44.9%


And to give you a little comparison . . . sparkling water has a "volume share" of 4%


So the next question for today is this . . . is it "SAFE" to consume so many "carbonated" beverages???


Well . . . "carbonated" drinks do a couple of things "to" and "for" the body.


The "good" news . . .


Many studies show that "carbonated" WATER . . . improves satiety . . . or a feeling of fullness.


And it "IS" water that we're drinking . . . so it "can" help the body stay "hydrated"


BUT . . . with that being said . . .


The "bad" news is this . . .


Drinking too many "carbonated" beverages during the day . . . can cause a problem with our "tooth enamel" . . . among other health issues.


And tomorrow, we'll find out why . . .
