Just for the record I have never been a big fan of soda of any kind.
Yes I do know how difficult it is to limit or eliminate soda from children’s diet. I have a daughter, grand kids and great grand kids of my own.
At least around my house. I never buy soda of any kind. My daughter, grand kids and great grand kids know this. They know soda is not an option at grandpa’s house. They never ask for soda and drink fruit juice, milk or water.
The real question is, do you cave-in and allow your children to drink soda to stop the whining? Or do you do what is best for that child’s long term health and replace soda with milk, real natural 100% percent pure juice or water?
Half of Americans over age 6 may be exposing themselves to a cancer causing carcinogen 4-methylimidazole (4-MEI). This compound is sometimes produced during manufacturing and is known to cause cancer.
Researchers found that 44 percent of kids and 58 percent of adults drink at least one can of soda per day. To put this 1 can a day bad habit in prospective, that’s 30 that’s right 30 – 12 can packs of soda a year. Or put this way it is 34 gallons of soda consumed in one year.
In the analysis of 4-MEI concentrations, researchers found that levels of the carcinogen varied, even for the same type of beverage. Among diet colas, certain samples had higher or more variable levels of the compound, while other samples had low concentrations of 4-MEI.
Soft drink consumers are exposing themselves to an avoidable and unnecessary cancer risk from an ingredient that is being added to these beverages mostly as a coloring agent. This unnecessary exposure poses a threat to public health and raises questions about the continued use of caramel coloring in soda.
