Here at Health Bunker, we pride ourselves in saying the things, that no one else wants to discuss. We are not trying to be argumentative, sensationalistic or spoil anyone’s fun. But we think it’s important to highlight what we are not being told by governments and business. So, in today’s article we will be talking about Sugary Drinks.
Over the past few years, we have heard various MPs and celebs like Jamie Oliver. They have been going on about how we have a higher risk of developing certain diseases by having too many sweetened drinks. But they only go so far, in fact they miss out the majority of the bad stuff and concentrate on sugar.
I personally have not had a fizzy drink for about 10 years. I had my share though, Sprite was my favourite. But what’s in these sugary soft drinks and is it just about the sugar content that increases the risk of diseases? We will be showing the sugar contents but we will also cover the industrial chemicals added to sofft drinks as well.
There are so many soft drinks out there nowadays it’s confusing; sports drinks, energy drinks, fruit juices, Coca Cola, and flavoured waters to name a few. The government has agreed on a sugar tax to try and curb the amount of sugar we consume through soft drinks.
Will it work though? And what price are we all paying in our health by drinking highly sweetened drinks?
