How unhealthy is carbonated water?


It is common knowledge that aerated drinks have very high calorie content. But recently I came across an article that told me high calories is not the only harm that you are doing to your body when you consume aerated drinks. Here’s why.

Excessive use of carbonated water will strip the body of phosphorous, a mineral that is vital to the integrity of bones and teeth, metabolism of nutrients, and the formation of genetic material, cell membranes, and many enzymes. Hence, carbonated water, he says, should be considered a luxury and used sparingly.

Distilled water, by the way, should not be used regularly either. It is devoid of all mineral content and, although the science is scanty, many long-term users have encountered health problems such as hair thinning or falling out. 

So for all my ‘spirited’ friends…on-the-rocks it is! 🙂

So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
