Do you feel like sipping cold drinks on a hot patch day or "Give more and more to Moore to quench your thirst"? If you are a fan of cold drinks, be careful. Doctors and nutritionists are unanimously ruling that this substance is harmful to health. There is a lot of writing on social media these days about the harms of drinking too many cold drinks. Therefore we need to be aware of this now.

■Harmful effects of cold drinks

Eating hot cold drinks is not healthy at all. Cold drinks that are usually taken out of the fridge have a temperature of around 5 degrees centigrade. Drinking cold drinks at this temperature actually affects the throat, esophagus and stomach. This multiplies the risk of a viral infection in the throat. There are also many harmful effects of cold drinks on the whole body.

None of the cold drinks available in the market have nutritional value. Drinking these cold drinks suppresses the physiological functions in our body. These also reduce the secretion of fat-burning enzymes. The result is obesity. And who doesn't know, being fat means inviting a bunch of diseases in the body.

➤ Most cold drinks contain a variety of chemicals to sweeten them. For example, many cold drinks contain artificial sweeteners called aspartame, which is 200 times sweeter than sugar. The effects of these harmful compounds increase the risk of liver damage and kidney stones. There may also be side effects:

Migraine,

Blurred vision,

Amnesia,

Chest palpitations,

Breathing problems,

Emotional chaos

Loss of reproductive health.

➤ All cold drinks contain a variety of chemical preservatives, such as sodium benzoate (or benzoic acid). These are very harmful to health. Many carbonated cold drinks contain sulfur dioxide, which is toxic to keep the color right. Drinking too much of such drinks can cause a number of symptoms. For example, swelling of the body, chest tightness, skin rashes, shock, fainting, etc.

Various artificial colors are used to make cold drinks look attractive. E.g., Caramel, Tartrazine, Sunset Yellow, etc. These chemical dyes are harmful to our body. In addition, bottles or cans of cold drinks can be mixed with harmful chemicals. [Read more: How to catch any plastic container that is harmful] Prolonged consumption of extra cold drinks increases the risk of cancer due to the effects of these chemicals.

Most cold drinks have a pH of around 3.2. That is, these drinks are acidic in nature. For this reason, they are very dangerous for teeth and bones. Cold drinks contain phosphoric acid, which is essential for bone loss and kidney damage. And if there is citric acid, tooth decay. Due to its acidic nature, cold drinks also have a detrimental effect on the stomach and digestive system. Playing too much of these can cause gas and acidity problems.

➤ Many cold drinks contain caffeine. Drinking too much of such drinks can create addiction. Excessive caffeine entering the body through cold drinks has a number of harmful effects. Namely, restlessness, nervous weakness, high blood pressure, loss of reproductive health, agitation, insomnia, etc.

Some cold drinks contain excess sugar. Playing too much of these can lead to diabetes. Such cold drinks are also extremely harmful to the heart and liver.

■Last word

We should not be influenced by the glamorous advertisements of cold drinks. There are many ways to lose heat when you feel hot. Some of them are healthy and some are unhealthy.

Eating juicy fruits like cucumber, watermelon, mango, blackberry etc. fall in the first one.and also Drinking pure water..

In the second half, it is cold drinks.. Eating ice cream arbitrarily..

SO We have to choose the healthy way to live or the unhealthy way, but we have to fix that.

THANKS!!🤗

Well to begin with, their consumption is out of consumer interests since they are warned from consumption plus there's the fda which filters out the products that pass safety standards
