It’s AumSum Time. What if we replace Water by Soft drinks? Naahhh. We should replace salads by Burgers & French
Fries. Oh AumSum. If we replace our 8 daily glasses of water
with 8 soft drinks. Then we would be in a big trouble. In a real-life incident, a woman drank soda
instead of water for 16 years. She was hospitalized. She had irregular heartbeats & very low potassium
levels. Artificial sweeteners in soft drinks can have
laxative effects. Overconsumption of same can cause diarrhea. Many soft drinks contain caffeine. Overconsumption of caffeine can lead to loss
of potassium via urine. Flow of potassium regulates our heartbeat. Low potassium levels may lead to heart palpitations
or irregular heartbeats. Overconsumption of caffeine can also lead
to insomnia. We might start staring more at stars instead
of sleeping. Also, soft drinks are usually sugary drinks. Hence, this will also lead to weight gain or diabetes.
