Something About Soda
HEALTH IS AT STAKE!
Scientists have found that in order to be healthy, people must maintain body fluids in the slightly alkline range, 7.1 to 7.5 pH. The pH scale goes from 0 (totally acid) to 7 (neutral) to 14 (totally alkaline). Over 150 degenerative diseases are linked to acidity, including cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, gall and kidney stones, and many more. All diseases thrive in an acidic, oxygen-poor environment.
A drop in every point on the pH scale is10x more acidic than the previous number - i.e. from 7 to 6 is 10x, from 7 to 5 is 100x etc. From 7 to 2 is 100,000x more acidic. Conversely, a rise in one point on the scale represents 10x more alkaline.
Colas are in the approximate 2.5 pH range. Almost no soda is higher than 3.0. Diet sodas are the worst as they are the most acidic. Actually diet sodas can cause you to gain weight because they alter the blood chemistry, making changes in your metabolism leading to a slower metabolic rate and causing the formation of fat to store the acids to protect the body.
The best liquid to drink is water. The very best water to drink is distilled water. The very best distilled water to drink is treated with Marine Bio's Coral Calcium and John Ellis' Oxygen Concentrated Electron Energized Water.
Almost everything we do including our lifestyles and diets push us into the acidic range. Proteins, carbohydrates, and fats are all digested down to acids. Even metabolic functions and exercise create acids (lactic acid). Body fluids range between 4.5 and 7.5 pH. Blood must maintain an alkaline range of 7.35 to 7.45 pH. Iif we do not get the proper minerals (minerals are the alkalizing or "buffering" elements that are essential to health) in the proper forms, our bodies may begin to deteriorate. When you drink soda, the deterioration is likely to happen at a greatly accelerated rate.
Cola & Sodas Actually Kill You?
It takes 32 glasses of alkaline water at an alkaline pH of 9 to neutralize the acid from one 12 oz. cola or soda. When you drink a cola or soda, the body will use up reserves of its own stored alkaline buffers, mainly calcium from the bones and DNA to raise the body's alkalinity levels, especially to maintain proper blood pH levels. Acidic blood levels cause death! There are enough acids in one soda to kill you outright if you didn't possess a mechanism to neutralize them by taking minerals from your bones and tissues. But your body's mineral supply can be used up.
Sodas, like water and some other liquids, pass very quickly through the stomach into the small intestine where they are assimilated through the openings in the villi in the walls of the intestines into the bloodstream without being digested. Liquids do not remain in the digestive tract. Liquids go into the bloodstream and are filtered through the liver and the kidneys, and whatever is not needed by the body is sent to the bladder to be urinated out. But along the way, these liquids come in contact with virtually every cell in your body. So, if the liquid is not pure and healthy, it will negatively affect the body.
When a substance is acidic, it contains a large number of positively charged hydrogen ions. These positively charged ions are lacking electrons and rip electrons away from other atoms and molecules in the body which themselves become electrically unstable and seek other electrons from other atoms and molecules. These unstable atoms and molecules are called free radicals, and they do their damage by initiating a chain reaction of electron ripping. Whenever an electron is torn from an atom a tiny spark is produced, and this spark is damaging to cell membranes just as a nuclear explosion is damaging to cities. This is called free radical damage and can be seen under a microscope in live blood cell analysis.
The body must stop this process because you will die if your body cannot neutralize the acids. When you use up the supply of available minerals to neutralize the acids, that is the point at which serious degenerative disease begins. Every soda you drink will contribute to this acidity. Even without soda our bodies naturally produce acids, and minerals are needed in our diets to stop the deterioration process. Unfortunately, most of the food we eat no longer contains the minerals we need. This is one of the main reasons for the degenerative diseases so prevalent today.

Marine Bio's Coral Calcium product is the most effective agent known to assist the body in developing and maintaining a proper pH balance. An acidic environment in the body is conducive to illness. A properly alkaline environment helps the body to be healthy, aids in the elimination of toxins and bad bacteria and viruses, and helps with the assimilation of essential nutrients.
Most degenerative diseases we call "Old-Age Diseases" like memory loss, osteoporosis, arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, and many more are actually life style conditions caused by long-term acidosis, caused by esssential nutrient deficiencies, what we eat, don't eat, or don't properly absorb or eliminate.
