Drinking poison…oh sorry Diet soda…

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Uncategorized

I know only maybe .01% of people that drink diet soda  actually know what it’s doing in their body, and only a small percentage of those actually care. But if you really knew the dangers that your children were faced with daily and this danger is being multiplied every time they happily glug these popular drinks down I think you’d think differently.

There are three stages the diet soda goes through once it’s passed your lips, Aspartame or Amino Sweet  (same thing) is firstly transformed into Methanol..

Methanol ingested in large quantities is metabolized to formic acid or formate salts, which is poisonous to the central nervous system, and may cause blindness, coma, and death.

As Wikipedia says it’s then metabolized into Formic Acid, if you’ve ever been bitten by those annoying fire ants then you’ll know what formic acid is.

The next stage is even worse, it’s Formaldehyde, a major component of Embalming fluid.

What is formaldehyde?

Formaldehyde is a colorless, flammable, strong-smelling chemical that is used in building materials and to produce many household products. It is used in pressed-wood products, such as particleboard, plywood, and fiberboard; glues and adhesives; permanent-press fabrics; paper product coatings; and certain insulation materials. In addition, formaldehyde is commonly used as an industrial fungicide, germicide, and disinfectant, and as a preservative in mortuaries and medical laboratories.

So the next time you or one of your offspring say they want a Diet Coke think about it, yes it may taste good to you but this toxic drink is laying the foundation for many health problems in the future.
