I came across this very startling report from the Mail Online news service, out of the UK, at www.dailymail.co.uk, that shows how the soft drinks that most people in our western countries, especially in the United States, are addicted to may have altered our own body's metabolisms to the point that it is nearly impossible to lose that extra weight in our bodies! I have that entire article right here for everyone to see for themselves, and of course some additional comments and thoughts to follow:
Fizzical harm: Drinking sugary drinks doesn't just pile on the pounds - it changes your body so it's harder to lose weight
- Drinking sugary drinks for just a month alters body chemistry
- More difficult to lose weight
- Body grows to 'prefer' sugar to digesting own fat
‘Together with our findings about how drinking soft drinks dulls the perception of sweetness, our new results give a stark warning against regularly drinking sugar sweetened drinks.’
‘This would relate to all kinds of soft drinks with a high sugar content, including fruit juices.
NTS Notes: Soft drink manufacturers, in their never ending greedy quest for greater profits, switched the sugars used in most soft drinks from cane sugar derived Sucrose, to cheaper corn derived High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), in the late 1970's to early 1980s... The net result has been an epidemic of Obesity affecting everyone.
We can see the results of greed, and the pursuit of greater profits, in soft drink manufacturers, in switching over to Fructose based sugars, by the absolute explosion of obesity in our societies. Now it seems according to this article that our bodies have been permanently altered by these criminals, and it is nearly impossible to lose that extra weight through exercise and dieting....
As always, as more articles come out about important health concerns, I will present them here in this blog for everyone to view for themselves...Stay tuned..
More to come
