Buy Viagra Internet

Americans are finally starting to realize the dangers of soda, buy viagra internet with nearly two-thirds (63 percent) saying they actively try to avoid soda in their diet, buy viagra internet a new Gallup poll revealed. This is a significant increase from 2002, buy viagra internet when only 41 percent were trying to avoid soda, buy viagra internet and a clear sign that, buy viagra internet as TIME reported, buy viagra internet “the soda craze is going flat.”

Soda Consumption Falls to Lowest Level in Decades

The soda industry is a $75-billion market, buy viagra internet an industry that reached its greatest heights in the US during the 1980s and 1990s, buy viagra internet when Coca-Cola began pushing larger drink sizes and “upsizing.” Fountain drink sizes grew more than 50 percent by 1990, buy viagra internet and in 1994, buy viagra internet the 20-ounce plastic bottle was introduced in the US. As people drank more and more soda, buy viagra internet rates of obesity and diabetes soared, buy viagra internet and while the soda industry still denies to this day any connection, buy viagra internet research suggests otherwise. Buy viagra internet The “supersized” mentality seems to have backfired for Coca-Cola and other beverage companies, buy viagra internet because as the health risks become clear, buy viagra internet sales have been on a steady downward spiral. As Businessweek reported:
For decades, buy viagra internet soft-drink companies saw consumption rise. Buy viagra internet During the 1970s, buy viagra internet the average person doubled the amount of soda they drank; by the 1980s it had overtaken tap water. Buy viagra internet In 1998, buy viagra internet Americans were downing 56 gallons of the stuff every year—that’s 1.3 oil barrels’ worth of soda for every person in the country. And then we weren’t as thirsty for soda anymore, buy viagra internet and there were so many new drink options that we could easily swap it out for something else. Buy viagra internet Soft-drink sales stabilized for a few years… In 2005 they started dropping, buy viagra internet and they haven’t stopped. Buy viagra internet Americans are now drinking about 450 cans of soda a year, buy viagra internet according to Beverage Digest, buy viagra internet roughly the same amount they did in 1986.”
 

Coca-Cola Seeks to ‘Reintroduce’ Coke to Teen Market, buy viagra internet and in ‘Guilt-Free’ Sizes

Part of Coca-Cola’s plan to bring soda back is, buy viagra internet ironically, buy viagra internet introducing smaller sizes, buy viagra internet a strategy they believe might reposition Coke so “people stop feeling guilty when they drink it, buy viagra internet or, buy viagra internet ideally come to see a Coke as a treat.” Smaller, buy viagra internet 7.5-ounce minicans and 8-ounce glass bottles have been selling well. Buy viagra internet Even Sandy Douglas, buy viagra internet president of Coca-Cola North America, buy viagra internet says he limits himself to one 8-ounce glass bottle of regular Coke in the morning. Buy viagra internet Any more would be too many calories, buy viagra internet he told Businessweek. Meanwhile, buy viagra internet Coca-Cola decided to target the teen market directly this summer. Buy viagra internet Teens, buy viagra internet while notorious for their soft-drink consumption, buy viagra internet have been quickly bailing ship and opting for energy drinks instead. So Coca-Cola printed the 250 most common teen names on Coke bottles, buy viagra internet hoping to entice teens with the “personalized” drinks. Buy viagra internet It worked. Buy viagra internet Sales increased by 1 percent in North America in the last three months.5 Beverage consultant Mike Weinstein, buy viagra internet former president of A&W Brands, buy viagra internet even noted that he goes right into high schools to find out whether teens can identify soda company slogans. Yet, buy viagra internet there seems to be a growing realization within the industry that, buy viagra internet as American attitudes about diet change, buy viagra internet and more people seek to reduce added sugar and sugary drinks in their diets, buy viagra internet appealing to the “healthier” side of their image is needed. And, buy viagra internet here, buy viagra internet too, buy viagra internet Coca-Cola is quick to respond. Buy viagra internet They’ve invested heavily in small “healthy” beverage companies like Fuze tea, buy viagra internet Zico coconut water, buy viagra internet and organic Honest Tea. Buy viagra internet Coca-Cola also owns Odwalla and Simply Orange juices, buy viagra internet Glaceau Vitaminwater, buy viagra internet and Core Power sports drinks. Coca-Cola Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Muhtar Kent has no intention of letting Coca-Cola’s brands, buy viagra internet and its namesake product Coke, buy viagra internet fall by the wayside. A $1-billion two-year marketing blitz’s sole goal is to drive its “sparkling” division back to its former glory. Buy viagra internet And in case you were wondering… its healthy-sounding “sparkling” division includes soda, buy viagra internet which is completely delusional.  

What Happens When You Drink Soda?

Soda is on my list of the absolute worst foods and drinks you can consume. Buy viagra internet Once ingested, buy viagra internet your pancreas rapidly begins to create insulin in response to the sugar. Buy viagra internet A 20-ounce bottle of cola contains the equivalent of 16 teaspoons of sugar in the form of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). Buy viagra internet In addition to contributing to insulin resistance, buy viagra internet the rise in blood sugar is quite rapid. Buy viagra internet Here’s a play-by-play of what happens in your body upon drinking a can of soda:
  • Within 20 minutes, buy viagra internet your blood sugar spikes, buy viagra internet and your liver responds to the resulting insulin burst by turning massive amounts of sugar into fat.
  • Within 40 minutes, buy viagra internet caffeine absorption is complete; your pupils dilate, buy viagra internet your blood pressure rises, buy viagra internet and your liver dumps more sugar into your bloodstream.
  • Around 45 minutes, buy viagra internet your body increases dopamine production, buy viagra internet which stimulates the pleasure centers of your brain – a physically identical response to that of heroin, buy viagra internet by the way.
  • After 60 minutes, buy viagra internet you’ll start to have a blood sugar crash, buy viagra internet and you may be tempted to reach for another sweet snack or beverage.
As I’ve discussed on numerous occasions, buy viagra internet chronically elevated insulin levels (which you would definitely have if you regularly drink soda) and the subsequent insulin resistance is a foundational factor of most chronic disease, buy viagra internet from diabetes to cancer. Buy viagra internet Today, buy viagra internet while many Americans are cutting back on sugary drinks, buy viagra internet soda remains a dietary mainstay for many. Buy viagra internet Along with energy drinks and sports drinks, buy viagra internet soda is among the top 10 sources of calories in the US diet (number four on the list, buy viagra internet to be exact), buy viagra internet and, buy viagra internet in 2012, buy viagra internet Gallup found that 48 percent of Americans said they drink at least one glass of soda a day, buy viagra internet with proven detrimental impacts to their health.   keep-calm-and-don-t-drink-soda-2

Your Brain on Soda

When you drink soda, buy viagra internet numerous changes happen in your body, buy viagra internet including in your brain. Buy viagra internet A new animal study, buy viagra internet presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior, buy viagra internet found that sugary beverages may be particularly damaging to the brains of adolescents, buy viagra internet one of the key age groups soda companies are trying to “court.” Both adult and adolescent rats were fed sugary beverages for one month. Buy viagra internet They then were tested for cognitive function and memory. While the adult rats did okay, buy viagra internet the adolescent rats fed sugary drinks had both impaired memory and trouble learning. Next, buy viagra internet the researchers plan to study whether soda leads to inflammation in the brain’s hippocampus, buy viagra internet which is crucial for memory and learning.   Source: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2014/08/13/soda-consumption.aspx?i_cid=health-sb-soda
