The Dangers of Drinking Soda Pop


Did you know that Americans drink almost more soda than water?

Water is the most important nutrient for the human body. Water comprises about 75-80% of the human mass and is vital for every cell. Since it is the body’s most abundant substance, water is a very important component in your overall health.

The term “soft drink” is misleading because it is anything but soft on the body. In fact, there are many potential health risks associated with soft drinks. Many soda drinkers are not aware of the dangers of this beverage.


Soda pop actually originated in pharmacies. It was used as a drug or pharmaceutical substance. Several inventers of certain brands of soda pop, such as John Pemberton, the inventor of Coca-Cola, were pharmacists who patented soda pop as medicine. Adding to its appeal, Coca-Cola was known to relieve indigestion and hyspepsia.

Because soda pop was supposed to be a great reliever of dyspepsia, a brand was finally produced whose name was hidden in the word “dyspepsia”. We find Pepsi within the word dys(pepsi)a.

7-Up was originally a drug or medicine used on mental patients. It was given to people in insane asylums. The name 7-Up derives from the drug originally having seven ingredients, with the seventh ingredient being lithium, a known chemical drug that is given for depression.

Incidentally, soda pop originally started out as liquid drug (medicine) sold at the local pharmacy.

So why do we drink soda pop? Well, because we’ve been conditioned to drink soda pop and we enjoy the taste. But it’s potentially quite dangerous to our health.


Soda pop contains some of the most harmful synthetic sweeteners in existence. Many brands of soda pop contain aspartame and saccharin, both of which are artificial sweeteners and proven to cause cancer.


Aspartame-which is 200 times sweeter than sugar-is an artificially made sweetener composed of two amino acids – phenylalanine and aspartic acid. It contains 10% methyl alcohol, which is also known as methanol (a light volatile pungent flammable poisonous liquid alcohol used as a solvent, anti-freeze, or denaturant for ethyl alcohol and in the synthesis of other chemicals). It’s also a known neurotoxin that impairs brain health and function. A neurotoxin is a toxin that can adversely affect fetal brain development in unborn babies.

At the temperature of 86 degrees farenheit, aspartame converts into a neurotoxin called formaldehyde. Since the human body’s natural temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, aspartame will automatically convert into formaldehyde once inside the human body. Those who consume aspartame are essentially embalming themselves with formaldehyde.


Saccharin is just as dangerous and toxic as aspartame. Saccharin is a non-caloric petroleum derivative that is 300 times sweeter than sugar. Saccharin is absorbed but not modified by the body. It is excreted unchanged in the urine. Saccharine causes bladder cancer in lab animals, which means that it will also cause bladder cancer in humans.

Other sweeteners

High fructose corn syrup is another dangerous sugar that many soda brands contain. Once ingested, this harmful sugar goes straight into the blood and adversely affects blood sugar levels almost instantly.

ACE-K is one of the latest synthetic sweeteners added to soda brands such as Pepsi-Cola. This drug adversely affects the brain.

Other brands of soda pop may contain corn syrup or dextrose, both of which are harmful to your health.


Some soda pop brands outright use sugar in addition to other artificial sweeteners. Sugar is the number one legalized drug on the planet. It kills more people in one day than all the illegal drugs combined within 1,000 years.

One can of soda is equivalent to 11 tablespoons of sugar. No wonder soda pop consumption plays a role in diabetes, kidney failure, and anxiety. Mark Pendergrast, author of “For God, Country and Coca-Cola” correctly states that soda is “99 percent sugar water.”

Nowadays, public schools have soda-dispensing machines throughout the campus of junior high schools and high schools throughout the nation.


Caramel coloring creates a brown color of the cola beverages. Caramel is nothing but burnt white sugar. So soda pop literally contains sugar on top of sugar. Soda pop simply has too much sugar in it and thus is a major drug.


Soda pop contains high amounts of a drug called caffeine. Caffeine belongs to a chemical drug group known as Methyl-Xanthines.

Twenty to thirty percent of American adults consume more than 500 milligrams of caffeine per day. This is twice the amount that doctors consider to be a large “drug dose.”

Digesting caffeine places severe stress on your heart. It also drives your nervous system into a state of sympathetic alert, the state you attain when a wild animal is chasing you and you are running for your life.

Hundreds of thousands of young American schoolchildren are drinking a soda in the morning before class starts every single day. Caffeine and sugar consumption is the a major reason why anxiety is a problem in American public schools. Caffeine is one of the world’s most psycho-active drugs and sugar is the most addictive drug on the planet.

Caffeine depletes you in B-vitamins, especially B1 (thiamin). Vitamin B1 deficiency symptoms include fatigue, nervousness, general aches and pains, and headaches.

If your adrenal glands do not react to the stimulation of caffeine, it could mean that you are headed for a physical breakdown due to adrenal exhaustion.

When you get into a state of sympathetic alert, your digestive system turns off because your blood is now sent preferentially to your muscles, lungs, and heart.

If you have any food in your digestive tract, it is subject to fermentation, and eventually becomes rancid from sitting too long in the intestinal tract that is shut down. Instead of being nourished by your food, your body becomes poisoned by the rotting products of incomplete digestion.

Caffeine also has diuretic properties that put extra stress on the kidneys and causes dehydration. Caffeine makes the nervous system work harder than it needs to.

Various studies have linked caffeine to birth defects. Research shows that caffeine interferes with DNA replication and depletes the body of vital nutrients, especially B-vitamins, Vitamin C, zinc, and potassium. Caffeine can also prevent the absorption of iron.

More than all other drugs combined, Americans have a physiological and/or psychological dependency on caffeine.

Most well-known and liked soda brands are loaded with caffeine. Consider the following:

  • Mountain Dew – 54.0 milligrams
  • TAB – 46.8 milligrams
  • Coca-Cola – 45.6 milligrams
  • Diet Coke – 45.6 milligrams
  • Shasta Cola – 44.4 milligrams
  • Dr. Pepper – 39.6 milligrams
  • Pepsi-Cola – 38.4 milligrams
  • RC Cola – 36.0 milligrams


Soda contains preservatives as well. The chief preservative in many soda brands is sodium benzoate. Sodium benzoate is used to preserve freshness. Soda has to be preserved because it is a dead substance. If something needs to be preserved, then it is dead.

Most soda brands contain “taste freshener” chemicals such as erythorbic acid and potassium benzoate. It can also contain “flavor protector” chemicals such as calcium disodium. All of these chemicals are synthetic. Once inside the body, they help to preserve the taste of other chemicalized foodstuffs in addition to corrupting and polluting the taste buds.

Other ingredients

The acid in soda is erodes and weakens teeth, more specifically, the enamel. Calcium is the most alkalizing mineral in the body. Teeth are alkaline in nature due to calcium, the most alkalizing mineral in the body. Because soda is greatly acidic, it corrodes the teeth and enamel.

Another sinister ingredient some soda pop brands may contain is polyethylene glycol. Glycol is also used as an anti-freeze in automobiles and an oil solvent.

Phosphoric acid is another chemical that is found in soda. It is very acidic and it dissolves calcium out of the bones. This plays a major role in the development of osteoporosis, the weakening of the bones and skeletal structure. Due to the bones becoming fragile, a person becomes more susceptible to broken bones.

Phosphoric acid also damages the skeletal system and greatly disturbs the body calcium-phosphorus ratio. It fights hydrochloric acid, a chemical that is needed for digestion in the human stomach.

Carbon dioxide makes soda effervescent. Carbon dioxide is a natural waste product that the body produces. Carbon dioxide is released with every exhalation. When you drink soda, you are putting carbon dioxide back into the body even though the body naturally expels it with every exhalation. Essentially, nature takes out the carbon dioxide and then people put it back into their body. Soda is predominantly carbon dioxide and colored sugar water.

A few brands of well-known soda pop brands indirectly contain synthetic phenylalanine, a synthetic amino acid that plays a role in phenylketonuria. Penylketonuria is a metabolic disease that is characterized by the inability to oxidize a metabolic product of phenylalanine and also by severe mental retardation. This is why a few soda cans warn the consumer (who may be a phenylketonuric) that the beverage contains phenylalanine. Everything containing aspartame also contains phenylalanine.

Cleverly hidden within the chemical name, glycerol ester of wood resin, is actually wood alcohol. This type of alcohol is terrible for human health. However, it doesn’t stop the soda manufacturer from using it in their products.

Petroleum-based chemical color dyes or lake dyes are dangerous to human health. Yellow Lake, Blue Lake, Red Lake, and Green Lake are all carcinogenic or cancer causing.

Other ingredients in soda pop may contain citric acid, sodium citrate, sodium polyphosphates, potassium sorbate, and gum acacia. Just about every soda pop can or bottle may have the ingredient “natural flavor” listed, but this isn’t what is seems. Natural flavor is an umbrella term that allows companies to hide synthetic chemicals under the banner of that which is natural. If the flavor is natural or derived from natural sources, why not list them on the product? Well, clearly because the truth of the matter is that the “natural flavor” is derived from unnatural and synthetic chemicals that pollute and corrupt our taste buds and our blood.

A recent health finding shows that leptospirosis is caused by digesting soda. Leptospirosis is caused by dried rat urine on soda pop cans. Occasionally, rats may pee or urinate on the soda cans in many stores and markets. The urine dries on the can and then unconscious consumers purchase the can of soda and drink from the can, exposing their mouth to the dried rat urine. If you are going to drink soda, make sure to drink it from a glass or cup.

Rat urine contains very toxic and fatal substances. A New York City University study showed that the tops of soda pop cans are more contaminated than public toilets and are full of so-called germs and bacteria.


Soda doesn’t contain the real source of its flavor. If you drank a strawberry soda and read the ingredients on the can or bottle, you rarely see the word strawberry under the list of ingredients. However, most soda labels tell you in fine print that the beverage is artificially flavored. The artificial flavoring industry is very good at what they do.

“The flavor industry is highly secretive. Its leading companies will not divulge the precise formulas of flavor compounds or the identities of clients. The secrecy is deemed essential for protecting the reputation of beloved brands. The fast food chains, understandably, would like the public to believe that the flavors of their food somehow originate in their restaurant kitchens, not in distant factories run by other firms. The New Jersey turnpike runs through the heart of the flavor industry, an industrial corridor dotted with refineries and chemical plants. International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF), the world’s largest flavor company, has a manufacturing facility off Exit 8A in Dayton, New Jersey; Givaudan, the world’s second-largest flavor company, has a plant in East Hanover. Haarman & Reimer, the largest German flavor company, has a plant in Teterboro, as does Takasoga, the largest Japanese flavor company. V. Mane Fils, the largest French flavor company, has a plant in Wayne, Bush Boake Allen is in Montvale, and Heavenly Flavors is in Bayonne. Dozens of companies manufacture flavors in New Jersey industrial parks between Teaneck and South Brunswick. Indeed, the area produces about two-thirds of the flavor additives sold in the United States.” Fast Food Nation. Schlosser, Eric. New York: Houghton Mifflin (2001), pg. 121


All soda is 100% acid forming regardless of the type or brand. It has a pH balance of 2. This is a very low pH number.

Our bodies were made to have a natural pH balance of 7.3, which is slightly alkaline. A pH of 6 is ten times more acidic than a pH of 7. A pH of 5 is 100 times more acidic than a pH of 7. A pH of 4 is 1,000 times more acidic than a pH of 7. A pH of 3 is 10,000 times more acidic than a pH of 7. And a pH of 2 is 100,000 times more acidic than a pH of 7.

One can of soda pop greatly lowers your alkalinity. Once can of soda is 100,000 more acidic than your natural pH level.

A pH of 2 means that a person would have to drink 32 eight ounce glasses of alkaline water just to neutralize the effect of one can of soda.

There is nothing soft about soft drinks. All soda is harmful to your health. Unfortunately misleading, diet soda is just as worse as regular soda. If you drink diet soda and don’t physically exercise, the sugars in diet soda will convert into fat.


People who find themselves addicted to soda pop should replace the soda with cider. There are many carbonated ciders that taste comparable to soda. Some even contain pure fruit juice and sparkling mineral water.

Cider is far better for your health than any brand of soda pop. The Crystal Geyser carbonated sparkling fruit juices are also healthier alternatives. Along with fruit cider, these make for a good transitory beverage for the soda pop addict.

So while you may still be ingesting carbon with cider and/or sparkling fruit juice, you are not digesting the harmful chemical sugars, caffeine, phosphoric acid, caramel, phenylalanine, and preservatives that are commonly found in soda pop.

“Virgils” makes pretty near-healthy soda pops that include the traditional American favorites such as root beer, sarsaparilla, black cherry, and ginger ale. These compare well to the average soft drink company.

If you enjoy ginger ale and/or root beer, you can find a few good brands on the shelves of health food stores.

In general, the less soda, the better. If you continue to drink soda, the healthier brands are generally more expensive. However, the cost outweighs the health benefits when compared to the average soda pop.

    Q: I am in need of cleansing my body and weight removal! (Removal and not loss because I don't want to find it again)! I need to remove about 80 pounds of unhealthy weight from my body and would like to do so in a natural way. I looked at both your Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse, but don't know which is a better option for me to follow right now?

    Q: Hey herbalist, so I have been doing a lot of research on caffeine, and the benefits and harms of it. I am looking for some added information about the differences between the caffeine found naturally in coffee or tea, and the kind found in pure caffeine pills. I have heard that the pills are much more harmful, but have not been able to find proof of why. With the exception of "its made in a lab, therefore it must be worse". If you could shed some light on the matter, I would greatly appreciate it! Just one more question. I have read that caffeine blocks the re-uptake of glutamate. This can cause glutamate toxicity (resulting in dead brain cells), but I am skeptical as to how often this occurs. Will that happen if one takes just 200-mg of caffeine? Is it for the chronic caffeine users who drink 6 cups of coffee a day for 10 years? Thanks so much for your time and effort! looking forward to some knowledge!


    Nature does not make caffeine or any substance in mono-structured form, including caffeine. Caffeine consumed by itself is harmful (a la caffeine pills -- nature does not produce caffeine pills). Caffeine pills are INORGANIC and thus not absorbed by the body (the cells). Bio-caffeiene from plant sources is ORGANIC and thus absorbable. Organic substances can be absorbed through the cells. Inorganic substances cannot. Inorganic caffeine blocks reuptake of glutamate, and that's another reason why synthetic caffeine is harmful. Organic caffeine does not block reuptake of glutamate.

    Q: I’ve been referred to your FULL BODY DETOX by my sister. I’ve been joyfully on it for a little over two weeks. I’m scheduled to finish this Tuesday coming up. Everything is wonderful as far as that flows... However, I have this wisdom tooth that decided to creep out of my gums and infect them as well... I'm in excruciating pain... I visited the dentist... He said he can’t pull the tooth until the gums heal.. My sister has me gargling with hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, tea tree oil and clove oil.... I want to know if this combination will heal my infected gums? Is this equivalent to what she would call an anti-fungal? I would deeply appreciate all of your wisdom right now? What you recommend now to heal the gums and preparing for and healing from the minor surgery? And Mr. Maatra your herbs and my willingness are healing me in imaginable ways.. My sister has been speaking of you and your influence in her


    Nadia has you gargling with some good stuff! Keep doing what you are doing. The hydrogen peroxide will help heal your gums. KHEMETIAN GOLD (available at Dherbs.Com) can also be used as a gargle. This is some powerful stuff! Read the â€BENEFITS OF CARBON A/K/A ACTIVATED CHARCOAL†article as well. Follow the advice in that article! Nadia is an apostle of health! A dear friend whom I love, value, and treasure! A real trooper! You'd all be wise to listen to her. She knows her stuff. A very powerful spiritual soul indeed! life.. We all laughed at her two years ago... She endured a lot... Now she’s got seven of us detoxing... Life is hilarious isn’t she.... Thank you for caring for those you haven’t even seen....

    Q: I've been a vegan for 2 years now. I've done the FBD 3 times in these two years, but my urine is still yellow. The only time it is clear is immediately after I drink water (reverse osmosis water). If I miss a day of drinking water, my urine goes back to being dark yellow. Does this mean that my body is still very toxic? Also, is it normal to release urine 5 to 15 minutes after drinking liquids? I would think that water would need to stay in the body for awhile for proper hydration and cleansing.


    From what you wrote I would suggest you start drinking alkaline water (purchase an alkaline water machine, you can find various brands in our e-book "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual"). If you are urinating within 10-15 minutes of drinking water you are not absorbing the water, and thus you require micro-clustered water which an alkaline (and ionizing) water machine does. I also highly recommend consumption of our Kidneys-Bladder formula (3 capsules per day).

    Q: I'm doing the Full Body Cleanse and I have a few questions about it: I get tired of drinking just the distilled water and I'd like to drink the herbal teas, but I don't like it by itself. Would it mess things up to add a pack or two of Splenda to my tea or maybe honey? I can't stand the salads with the olive oil or apple cider vinegar or the lemon juice as dressing and it makes me gag. I have To have some sort of salad dressing. What kind would be suitable? Do I look for sugar-free? Or organic and natural? I found one that is organic and natural, but it has 3 grams of sugar in it. Without eating all my whole grained breads and other fiber, I haven't had much of a bowel movement in 3 days, should I wait a while yet? (I had surgery on my bowels and always had to take fiber tablets and eat lots of grains to get my bowels to move.) I haven't done the enemas yet, (low on money) should I try that? Or should I resume my fiber tablets I normally take? Any type of fiber I could add to my fruit smoothies in the morning? I want to also do the female cleanse. Is it ok to do that immediately after I finish the full body cleanse or should I wait for a little while? Thank you for all your help, I feel much better than I did before and I just started this detox a week ago, lost 10 pounds, too, woohoooooo! Thank you


    1. Instead of splenda, use agave, stevia, or grade b maple syrup as a sweetener.

    2. In re Salad Dressing, an organic and natural one is great. You can also check our website for salad dressing recipes.

    3. The fiber pills are not part of the cleanse, so we wouldn't advise those. Fruit is you best choice of fiber so look into eating more papaya, mango, figs, etc. And yes, colonics (and enemas) would greatly help you - undoubtedly!

    4. You can do the Female Cleanse right after you finish detoxing. There's no need to wait!

    Q: I love to drink water, but I like to drink hot water you know boiling water slightly cooled. Is there a benefit, or disadvantage to this compared to drinking room temperature water? Secondly, the water I drink is boiled water. Alkaline water is not a privilege most Kenyans have. If 56% of the population is living below poverty line you do the math. So the water I drink is tap water, that I boil to make it safe for drinking. When I get to work I have Alkaline water as my work place provides me with that provision. I think this is detailed enough for you to get the picture and help. Once again (I love you) in Swahili for spreading the gospel!


    No difference at all, Beloved! Even the boiled water becomes room temperature water. You're doing fine! Thank you for your words as well! Much appreciated! Peace and Love!

    Q: I started my full body detox program yesterday and this morning I stopped into Jamba Juice to get a wheatgrass shot. I also got a pomegranate juice, strawberry, peach and mango drink with a mega green tea boost...I drank maybe about 4 oz of the drink and trashed it. I had the worst headache I've ever experienced in my life! Was it from the sugar in the juice? They claim to be all-natural or was it from the fasting? Would you recommend this establishment for those seeking to get their body clean?

    Q: First of all hello and thank you for the FULL BODY DETOX. I completed the full detox August 5, 08 and found it extremely beneficial, again, thank you. Please let me know your opinion regarding the "Abgone" Extra Strength pill that reportedly promotes pot belly loss (the one issue I continue to confront). I exercise, I do yoga and I jog four times weekly 3 miles. Never the less I still have a "pot belly". I contacted "Biotech Research" and was advised that this is an all natural product. The ingredients are said to be Vitamin C, Zinc, Chromium Polynitic, Phofphatidylserine, Clabcaa, Dandelion Powder, 99% Caffeine, Green Tea Extract, The capsule is made of soybean, beeswax, gelatin, glycerin and red dye #40. Please respond at your earliest convenience.


    That product ABGONE is crap due to the ingredients. No product is your solution, but the mind (thoughts, attitude), diet, lifestyle, etc. Stop worrying about the pot belly and focus on your desired state. Only see your results in your mind and you will attract the results on the material plane. Please read through some of our articles, beloved!

    Q: I have been experiencing very trying health issues for many years (over 25 years). The trouble began when my gall bladder was removed 26 years ago. I had mood swings, lack of energy, and severe diarrhea. Approximately 13 years ago I had an additional surgery for an umbilical hernia. Due to pre-op tests, my physician diagnosed me with thyroid disease and placed me on synthroid. This medication dramatically improved the digestive issues I had experienced for many years. I had very loose bowels when menstruating and when I was ill. I am overweight and have dealt with weight issues all my life. Three years ago I had a scare where I thought I experienced a heart attack. I spent three days in the hospital and learned of many health risks. My triglycerides were extremely high along with my sugar being borderline. I have been tested for diabetes on a number of occasions in my life but never show to be. There are numerous cases of diabetes in my family. My mother and one sister are insulin dependent and one other sister is on some form of pill medication for diabetes. At that time, I gave up sugar and began a regime at the gym. The have not eaten any sweets other than what I get in a little ketchup occasionally or some other kind of sauce that may contain some sugar. I have gone to the gym with minimal results in losing weight. I had a total hysterectomy six weeks ago. My regular GP has been on vacation and I've been dealing with one of her associates. This dr. sent me in for glucose tolerance and she has since diagnosed me as Type II Diabetic. She put me on a medication called "Metformin" and has me taking a 500 mg pill twice daily. I have only been on this medication for three days. I have been very careful to eat only what they say I can. I am experiencing the same issues as before with the diarrhea. Last night I was up all night with this and it is like water coming out of me. I am unable to find a physician who understands that I want to lose the weight, but cannot when I'm constantly dehydrated and feeling lethargic. When I have this constant problem, I am not able to do what I need to do for my overall health. Sorry to be so wordy but I wanted to explain the full extent of what I am experiencing. My friend told me to get on this website and explain my issues. He feels that you may be able to guide me in the direction of a natural product or products that can help me to have normal bowel movements and therefore begin doing the physical exercise that is needed for me to reduce my chances of becoming an insulin dependent diabetic.

    Q: Good morning, I have used several products in the last two months. They include the Full Body Detox, Detox bath drops, Aura cleansing, Mucus buster and the Acid buster. I battle MS and I received the results of the MRI, and it shows that my ventriculers went from 8-9mm to 1.2 cm.( I was told it is atrophy) I believe I will be healed, but I am at a lost of what to do next. I researched it and found that exerising will be good, and eating veggies and fruit (having no alcohol). I am continuing on the Mucus and Acid buster. Do you know what I should do next? By the way my cholesterol went DOWN to 159 from 224 at times 242.


    Keep doing everything you're doing. Take 3 capsules of Brain Tuner formula 2-3 times per day. Drink 1-2 cups of Brain Tuner per day as well. Also, do not worry! Think positive as you consume the herbs daily and eat a mostly vegan/raw foods diet.

    Q: I'm taking the FULL BODY DETOX and I am noticing that I am extremely bloated and a lot of gas. I've taken this product before and don't remember any of this. Also my urine output is decreased from normal I drink a gallon of water a day? I drink the distilled water I was unable to find alkaline water.


    It's your body that has been through something, not the herbs. Your colon is speaking to you. Don't worry! Just keeping detoxing! Distilled water is good for detoxing!
