Soft drinks include:

Beverages like colas, sparkling water, lemonade and fruit punch are among the most common types of soft drinks, while hot chocolate, tea, coffee, and milk do not fall into this classification. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUm7N0lXTnQ
Did you know…
Americans are drinking more soft drinks that ever before! More than 15 billion gallons of soda pop were sold in the U.S. in 2000. This works out to over one 12-ounce bottle per day for every man, woman and child

The average American drinks more than 53 gallons of carbonated soft drinks each year, more than any other beverage, including milk, beer, coffee or water

The empty calories of soft drinks are likely contributing to health problems, particularly overweight and obesity. Those conditions have become far more prevalent during the period in which soft drink consumption has soared.
Ingredients of soft drinks!!!!! Range from….

Carbonated water- is plain water into which carbon dioxide gas has been dissolved (carbonation).

For every can of carbonated soda ingested, the amount of oxygen in the blood is decreased by 25% for up to three hours. If you are drinking several sodas per day, you are depriving yourself for a significant amount of oxygen.

Carbon Dioxide, whom nobody in the world would advise you
to drink Co2. Two months back, there was a competition in the Delhi
University -
"Who could drink more Cokes?" The winner drank 8 bottles and died on
the spot - too much CO2 in the blood.

high fructose corn syrup- The most commonly used sugar in soda and soft drinks that are not diet happens to be types of fructose syrup. An increasing number of nutritionists and other medical professionals are now in agreement that refined sucrose, or especially high fructose corn syrup is a mind-altering, addicting drug. High fructose corn syrup has replaced cane sugar and dextrose (table sugar) in almost all soft drinks because of cheaper production costs. Because it is metabolized by the liver, fructose does not cause the pancreas to release insulin the way it normally does. Fructose converts to fat in a higher amount because of this more than any other sugar. This may be one of the reasons Americans continue to get fatter. High fructose corn syrup increases uric acid in the body, which is an indicator of heart disease.

Sugar in general- Sugar in particular is destructive because its ingestion lowers immune function by reducing the ability of white blood cells to ingest and destroy bacteria. This lowered immune function can last for five hours or more after the ingestions of sugar
The high amounts of sugar in Soft Drinks causes your pancreas to produce an abundance of insulin, which leads to a "sugar crash", leaving you feeling famished. Chronic elevation of sugar and insulin can lead to diabetes and other related diseases

Phosphoric Acid- Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase in osteoporosis. And recent human studies suggest that girls who drink more soda pop are more prone to broken bones. The soft drink industry denies that soda plays a role in bone weakening

sodium benzoate-prevents spoilage and growth of bacteria, it’s a preservative, it’s not supposed to be dangerous unless you ingest a high amount.
artificial flavors, (fruit juices, extracts, oils) concentrated fruit juices
yellow 5-gastrointestinal or liver toxicant, causes hives in certain people….doesn’t make you sterile.
Aspartame-enamel breakdown on tooth, can lead to some decay. Especially if that is romped with say lots of sugar! Most problems associated with aspartame include headaches, nausea, dizziness, and irritability

Splenda- Observational evidence shows that there are side effects of Splenda, including skin rashes/flushing, panic-like agitation, dizziness and numbness, diarrhea, muscle aches, headaches, intestinal cramping, bladder issues, and stomach pain. These show up at one end of the spectrum
Caffeine-flavoring agent, energy booster. Caffeine also does not allow for the digestive system to absorb as many nutrients and is a natural diuretic, meaning it dehydrates you and increases flow of urine. It is important to realize that caffeine is a physically addicting drug and can cause withdrawal symptoms if even more than 200mg is consumed (per day). include headaches, fatigue, drowsiness, irritability and temporary depression
Absorbic Acid,
Vegetable oils
phosphoric acid-active ingredient in coke. Its pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days

Country time lemonade: http://www.cool-drinks.com/Root%20Folder/CountryTimeLemonade.html
Contains: Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup and/or Sugar, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate (To Preserve Freshness), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Glycerol Ester Of Wood Rosin, Natural Flavor, Yellow 5, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Preserves Freshness).

Mountain Dew
Contains: Carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, concentrated orange juice and other natural flavors, citric acid, sodium benzoate (preserves freshness), caffeine, sodium citrate, gum arabic, erythorbic acid (preserves freshness), calcium disodium EDTA (to protect flavor) and brominated vegetable oil, yellow 5.

Mountain Dew-20 oz is ‘the worst pop’, it contains 19 tsps of sugar and 93 milligrams of caffeine.......nearly equivalent to adult dose of NoDoz

Body PH

A chronically over acidic ''pH'' corrodes body tissue, slowly eating into 60,000 miles of veins and arteries like acid eating through marble. If left unchecked, it will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain. Overacidifcation interferes with life itself, leading to all sickness and disease.

Soft drinks have a pH ranging from 1.5 to about 5. Soda has a lower PH.- and normal blood pH is between 7.2 to 7.4

that’s about 100,000 times more acidic that water.
It takes 32 glasses of alkaline water at a pH of 9 to neutralize the acid on ONE 12 oz can of soda. Most people don't drink that much water, and if they do, it's just regular water, not water that has been alkalinized. So in order to keep your blood at a neutral pH, your body uses the only thing it has to buffer that acid...the calcium from your bones. For every can of soda, your body withdraws 20mg of calcium from the bones.

When your body is an extremely acidic state that is when disease develops.

Acid Reflux
Soft drinks cause acid reflux (stomach acid rising up past the esophageal valve). This is more pronounced when the body is horizontal (as in sleeping), but the sheer volume of soft drinks consumed in the USA means the acid reflux is well past the danger point. Any time you ingest a gassy drink, you are going to get belching--and acid into the esophagus.

Carmel Color-Many soft drinks contain caramel coloring to allow them to have their dark appearance. The chemical polyethylene glycol is used to achieve this dark color. Glycol is used in antifreeze. Scientists are concerned that this caramel coloring may be a carcinogen.
Soft drinks steal water from the body. They work very much like a diuretic, which takes away more water than it provides to the body. To process the high levels of sugar you need a considerable amount of water. To replace the water stolen by soft drinks, you need to drink 8-12 glasses of water for every one glass of soft drinks that you consume

Impact on organs

Drinking sodas, especially on an empty stomach, can upset the fragile acid-alkaline balance of the stomach and other gastric lining, creating a continuous acid environment. This prolonged acid environment can lead to inflammation of the stomach and duodenal lining which becomes quite painful. Over the long term, it can lead to gastric lining erosion.

kidney stones are regularly formed when people drink soft drinks because of their acidity and radical mineral imbalances. Your body must buffer the acidity of soft drinks with calcium from your own bones. As this calcium is eliminated through your urine, it slowly forms kidney stones
Fructose has been shown to cause cirrohsis of the liver, or fatty liver.

Sports drinks
There are three problems with using these drinks as a rehydration solution. First, most soft drinks are diuretics, meaning they squeeze liquids out of the body, thus exacerbating dehydration instead of correcting it.

If you have a sugar-laden soft drinks like Gatorade and are dehydrated, the high sugar content requires that blood be sent to the stomach to digest it and you’ll get more susceptible to cramps and heat-related illnesses.

A useful tip
Hello.Not using the full disc! -
I've been using dvdshrink for awhile now and have just noticed that the burnt disc has only about 1MB used. Nero is set to automatic when burning. Is nero set right or should I set it to standard play?Thanks!
