Carbonated beverages should be had in moderation

I guess most of us at some point in time have had carbonated drinks. Well, carbonated drinks are popular at functions. Soft drinks are consumed significantly when had with accompaniment snacks. Least surprising why carbonated drink consumption is exceedingly high globally. Little children and teens consume large quantities of carbonated beverages globally. At fast food restaurants consumption of fizzy drinks is alarmingly high. Carbonated drinks are consumed in large quantities by persons when they are having, burgers, fires, potato chips, tacos, pizzas or other junk food.

Even though people are aware of the harms of carbonated drinks, the consumption of fizzy drinks is increasing globally. Obesity related health issues are common among persons who consume carbonated soft drinks on a regular basis. Research also reveals varied diabetic conditions are associated with excess carbonated beverage consumption. Also, the use of caffeine in some carbonated soft drinks has been criticized because of caffeine’s ability to cause sleeplessness and anxiety. It does make perfect sense to have carbonated beverages in moderation.

I never have them, these days. Carbonated (fizzy) drinks have been correlated with more broken bones in teenagers, than for those who drink water or milk. The fizziness leaches calcium from the bones, leaving them less strong. Also, sugary drinks are correlated with obesity but so also are diet drinks - because the artificial sweetener makes your body think calories are coming its way and when they don't - the body demands food, so people who drink diet drinks eat more.

I'm not really fond of carbonated drinks. I just love plain water.
