Let’s talk about what happens to your body when you drink soda.

In a ten-ounce soda, there are up to ten teaspoons of sugar. Instead of cane sugar, soda companies are also using high-fructose corn syrup.

High-fructose corn syrup can create even more problems than cane sugar, especially for the liver. The effects of fructose on the liver are actually similar to the effects of alcohol on the liver.

Fructose creates more fat than glucose, and it doesn’t satisfy. Fructose can potentially lead to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. The high-fructose corn syrup combined with caffeine in soda may lead to issues with your blood pressure, heart, brain, bones, and kidneys. Soda is also a key contributor to childhood obesity.

The sugar in soda feeds unfriendly bacteria, yeast, and fungus. It can also suppress your immune system and make you more susceptible to infections. This can lead to other issues, including increased tumor growth.

It’s crucial to point out that cancer thrives on sugar. Sugary drinks also block vitamin C and deplete vitamin B1 and vitamin D.

Soft drinks are associated with over 180,000 deaths worldwide. But combining soda with a fast food meal is an even deadlier situation.

  • cherry blossoms says:

    I only drink soda on rare occasions and even than I drink less than half a cup. I know how sugar can impact negativity on out body. Thanks for these videos doc. I’ll try to cut out sodas permanently from my diet

  • Es Elle says:

    My grandma drank cola her whole life. She will be 100 years old in 2 weeks! Lived in her own apt until she was 96. She has had very good health. She has lived WELL!

  • Amrit Singh says:

    My friend, who never drank alcohol and touched a cigarette, developed stage 2 fatty liver thanks to his regular soda consumption. He was shocked as he thought that only alcohol cause fatty liver. An experienced liver doctor told us that soda is as bad as alcohol if not worse for the liver.

    • Edy says:

      True, sugar especially fructose is the root cause of NAFLD (non alcoholic fatty liver disease). This leads to inflamed liver, fatty liver and eventually cirrhosis, exact same metabolic pathway as alcohol. So sad that too many people think they can get liver cirrhosis only from alcohol.

    When I was a kid in the 60s and a teen in the 70s no one in my sphere was obese. The slightly overweight kids in my class were singled out as abnormal. When I look around now I am speechless

  • Margie Camu says:

    I have confirmed that soda caused my neurogenic bladder also causing complicated UTI regularly. It’s sad that sodas continues to be supplied in the market. Thanks for the video Dr Berg🥰

  • Pete Zahutt says:

    Dr Bergs video on stop eating sugar for 14 days really turned my health around in the right direction, in the nick of time. Highly recommend

  • MaTtRoSiTy says:

    After stopping this stuff for literally years now, I actually cannot drink it at all even if I try to. It tastes so unbearably sweet there is no way I can tolerate it and I can believe I drank so much of this crap and I was never a big consumer of it in the first place

  • jkquinn21 says:

    As someone who basically consumed ONLY soda from childhood until I was in my 30’s- I don’t know how I’m still functioning!! Thankful that I gave up soda completely in 2020- and it’s amazing how much I now LOVE water- only water & coffee from now on!

  • Ethonra says:

    About a month ago, I drank 5 Strawberry Fantas at the same time in a single day and it gave me a terrible stomachache the following day that lasted for days. I was surprised because no other soda has ever done that to me before. If I drank only Strawberry Fanta for 14 days, I’d be dead.

  • Mark Guiou says:

    Love it when somebody tells the truth even when it means stepping on the toes of powerful organizations. Kudos Dr. Berg.Been many years since anyone in my family has consumed soda.

  • Juggalot33ny says:

    I havent had a fizzy drink (bar sparkling water) for about 18 years, and thought I’d lost all cravings, but watching this video with all the drinks being poured out, it’s like an advert for coke and makes me crave it again 😅
    But seriously, good info Dr Berg and thank you once again

  • The Red Queen says:

    Dr Eric Berg has helped me and many others throughout the years, I appreciate it, even though I am a fitness guru I am always learning more as I get older. His calm demeanor and positive approach reflects the community on his YouTube page. Best regards Dr eric berg and his team

  • Grayson Burkhart says:

    Dr berg, your content is always very informative. And, sometimes a bit scary. Reality in your face. However we need this in the world. I am a huge soda drinker. I drink it like water. I’ve been having some issues that mimic alcoholism. However, I don’t drink alcohol. I bet it’s that damn soda. Thank you Dr Berg for the critical information on this dangerous issue

  • Flsweetpea says:

    Amazing video Dr Berg! Haven’t had soda for a couple years but will share this with people that do. I appreciate you showing how our 3 letter agencies are trying to hoodwink us. God bless you and your family!

  • Zippitydoodah says:

    Thanks for being one of my “go-to” truth tellers in life, Team Berg. God bless you all.

  • ce2flaco says:

    This is great information. I made a complete lifestyle change at about 40 years old and a big part of that was reducing my soda consumption. I was a daily drinker but now I’ll have it once a week or so. It’s a game-changer.
