Do u all know that the cold drinks which we all drink so delightfully melts the bone and teeth. The pH level of cold drinks or rather all the soft drinks is 3.4, which is sufficient to melt teeth and bones. Approximately after 30 years of age the manufacture of bones in our body, stops. After that age depending on the %cent of acidity in our foods, our bones and teeth starts melting. If taken health wise then these drinks does not contain a single trace of vitamins and other nutrients. These contain sugar,carbonic acid and other acid in heavy amount. Average temperature of our body is 37degree Celsius. whereas the temperature of these drinks are far below near about 0degree Celsius. The large difference in temperature has a very bad effect on our digestive system. As a result the food does not digests completely and this causes gas and bad smell which spreads in our body and mouth and causes bad smelling mouth and many other diseases. In an experiment a tooth was kept in the bottle of a common cold drink for 10 days. After 10 days when the bottle was reopened for checking, the tooth was not there, it disappeared i.e. got dissolved in the drink! So just think when so strong teeth could not bear the bad effects of these cold drinks,then what would be the condition of delicate and soft intestines where drinks stay for hours!! So kindly spread this message and stay healthy!

I have also read about the message you have said that these aerated drinks dissolve our bones in the long run. I do not drink these cold drinks. But at times where you do not get fresh juices or even mineral water there is no option. I feel very sad to say that today's children and young teenagers are the one who have more of this aerated cold drinks. I have tried to pass on this message to many but in vain. Let us enjoy today and not for an unknown tomorrow or you always advice-are the comments i have received in return. I read recently that the black ones are more hazardous to health. Happy mylotting.

You are right dear.In today's world, whenever it comes to drinks they always prefer cold drinks, never think of fresh fruit juices. It is a very bad thing and we all should at least make sure that our children do not do that.

this is a good argument..but i believe it is not the pH level that melts down our bones and teeth because if it is just the pH level, our body can easily neutralize it...the content of the "cold drink" that would really do the harm in our body is its phosphorus content..as we all know..phosphorus and calcium are "enemies", meaning, if there is a high level of Calcium, the level of the phosphorus is considerably low and vice versa...so, since there is a high level of phosphorus ingestion, our body tends to EXCRETE calcium thereby, in the long run could results to brittle bones and early bone degeneration..

Thanks for sharing the knowledge, which i believe many people are aware of, but in hot weather it is really difficult to get away from it in front of such appealing colors, tastes, etc., esp. right after sports. I make sure such drinks not available at home, and no more than one if out of home. This might help a little bit.

well i dont drink cold sodas but I like iced water and have drank it all my life, and it must not have hurt me at all' since I Am now 82,.I agree with cold soft drinks as they do not have any nutritionAl value but drinking ice water doent hurt anything as by the time it reaches your tummy'it is body temperature Anyway. that stuff is really crap as we all need'water and in warm climes like ours we need cold water to drink' and its warmed by the time it reaches the tummy. many studies have been done and refuted that ice water is bad for your health crap.

hello sharadagrawal278, Wow! that is so informative and helpful to everyone. Thanks a lot for sharing. I will definitely share it to my family and friends as well. Indeed drinking too much soft drinks is harmful to our body for it is acidic. Much more if it is cold. So the best thing and the safest that we need to drink is water - to be more healthy.

Do you mean "COLA" drinks? I'm not sure what you mean, if you mean cola, yes, I agree, in excess, they're not good. If you mean "COLD", how can you drink something less than 0 celcius? It would be frozen. There's no harm in drinking "COLD" drinks. They quickly rise to your body temp.

Yes, colas and other soft drinks add nothing to our body while taking away from our purse LOL! When I was younger, drinking them was really so cool but nowadays I have become very conscious to avoid cold drinks most of the times. If I am out and feeling thirsty, nowadays either I have coconut water or carry drinking water with me. Even for my son, I rarely buy him cold drinks and thankfully he listens most of the times. Sometimes, though I do have to indulge him.

Disregard Cold Water and Cold Fruit Drinks . That will never do anything harm in our body nor our intestine. But about soft drinks and soda, yes you are right, they are harmful to us and we need to be cautious about this. We don stopped drinking soft drinks. We do drink more fruit juices and Gatorade. Some times we take cold milk with fruit flavors. A Smoothie is much more healthier to consider and thus make you gain weight (that is if your concern about slimming or trimming down) then disregard smoothies.

I've heard of the effect of cold drinks on a body before but I really do not have the self-discipline required to stop myself from doing what I've been doing for so long (not to mention cold drinks just quench the taste better than hot ones, IMO). I am trying to curb it, though, and have taken to drinking hot tea in the morning and whenever I can manage it. So far, I still prefer the cold drinks to hot ones but. Ugh. I really can't help it, though.

Thanks for sharing this informations with us.. Yes!! Its true. Cold drinks are not at all good for our health...To much intake of cold drinks may also lead to stomach ulcers and it may also later lead to kidney problems... After all all carbonated drinks are made up of chemicals.. They are also not easily digestible. It raises our cholesterol level,which also may led to heart ailments. Its will be the best if we can avoid them. Stay healthy..Happy Mylotting.

Hi, I hear what you are saying, and you have a good argument. However, the reality is that as long as corporations can make money from harmful drinks, they will keep making and distributing the Pepsi's, Sprite's, Dr. Pepper's of the world. Now will what you say about cold drinks deter me from drinking them? Probably not, but it will make me hesitate every time i look at a can of Sprite.
