Water Ionizers vs Soda? It’s a NO BRAINER!

Too much sugar. The weird aftertaste and mounting concern over artificial sweeteners used. The rising fears about some of the chemicals used to produce soda’s addicting taste.

We’re not surprised to hear about soda’s much-anticipated decline. However, soda hasn’t quite disappeared from the shelves just yet.

The sales numbers for soda are still alarming – but there’s reason for optimism.

Americans drank 12.3 billion gallons of soda in 2017 – down a significant 1 billion gallons from 2012.

Some people are turning to carbonated water to get their “fizzy fix,” but are these people being ripped off, and can they trust what’s in …

Soda Linked to Diabetes?

Due to decreasing rainfall, poor local infrastructure and (crucially) a huge Coca-Cola plant on the outskirts of San Cristóbal de las Casas that has a license to draw thousands of gallons of water every day from the local water reserves, locals end up drinking soda instead of water.

For most of us, it’s true to say that you’re never very far from a can of diet soda.  The soda can is so ubiquitous in our lives that we hardly notice it sitting on a co-worker’s desk, and we barely flinch when they’re thrust into our children’s hands at parties.  We have a vague idea that they’re not exactly great for our health, but they’re sugar-free, right?  So how bad can it be, exactly?  Let’s look the other way again.

It’s what they don’t list on the can that’s the problem.

Tyent Ionized Alkaline Water versus Poison Water

Posted by: acray On June 25, 2014 5:52 pm

                                          One drink you really should avoid Diet-soda     We eat and drink many things that are bad for us health wise.  In some ways, it is understandable.  I would think that most people, if given the option, would probably choose a snack cake over a bowl of kale.  Yet the snack cake is loaded with sugar, artificial flavors, and preservatives while in a Human Nutrition Research Center study, kale ranked highest in antioxidants of any food.

That’s why switching from soda to water is a perfect way to cut empty calories. Water doesn’t have any calories, but hydrates our bodies and gives us necessary minerals. In the case of alkaline ionized water, you can actually drink antioxidants and hydroxyl ions through your …
