May 23, 2012The more we hear about soda pop, the less we like it. A recent study linked carbonated drinks to lower bone density among girls. Until recently, studies had only linked cola to the problem. Researchers now believe one of the problems is the caffeine in the found in many drinks. Caffeine increases the excretion of calcium by the kidneys ... meaning less is absorbed into bones. Colas are also full of phosphoric acid, which may lower blood levels of calcium causing weaker bones. Experts found no evidence of the carbonation itself causing bone problems. Your best bet is to drink more water. Seventy-five percent of all Americans suffer with some dehydration. Water is key to a healthy body so drink up!
