Who doesn’t love sugar drinks, I mean they are so good to drink when your hot or when your watching your favorite sports team on Sunday. I used to drink them everyday, sometimes to much. They come in these drinkable one liter bottles, plus other sizes.
A lot of people don’t realize is, the one liters have tons of sugar and caffeine in them. A serving size in the one liters are 3 servings per bottle and 510 total calories and 180 mg of salt. Plus 138mg of carbs and 138mg of sugar. Yes 138mg of sugar (WOW).
It is very surprising I am not a diabetic, from how many I used to drink. Then a the bottom in little tiny letters, the caffeine is 162mg.
HERE IS THE INGREDIENTS OF MOUNTAIN DEW
Carbonated water, High fructose corn syrup, concentrated orange juice, citric acid, natural flavor, sodium benzoate, caffeine, sodium citrate, Erythorbic acid, gum Arabic, calcium disodium edta, brominated vegetable oil, yellow 5.
Does any of these look off to you? I can let you know right now from my research, I have found that anything that starts with(sodium) may not be good for you or may have some crazy side effects or ingredients in it. I need to let you know, that even my spell correct on my computer has a red line under two of the additives names because it state they aren’t words, that’s how bad they are.
I will make a list of my top 3 in this drink, all of America enjoys. I hope by showing you the chemicals found, even in our drinks that you may reconsider drinking them and drinking a more natural drink for your health. Here are my top three:
(First off before I tell you these, I in know way am saying any of this will happen to you, I am just stating the side effects that have happened to people in case studies over time and just warning you about the dangers in our drinks/foods.)
CALCIUM DISODIUM EDTA
- CALCIUM DISODIUM EDTA: This is safe when using as a medication, such as eye drops or by IV. To much of this chemical can cause kidney damage, kidney failure, dangerously low levels of calcium levels or even death. Common side effects are: Anemia, chills, blood clot, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, fatigue, insulin shock, irregular heart beat, thirst, aching joints. This chemical interacts with water pills. Consult your doctor before eating or taking this chemical if you have: Asthma, diabetes, heart problems, kidney disease, liver disease, seizure disorder.
I don’t know where to start with comments to that one, I was in shock to find out that the FDA said this chemical was safe to use in foods, yet it can cause so many side effects that harms you. Can you believe what I just typed, all those side effects and interactions with illnesses and know one knows about this found in mountain dew.
This chemical is also found in most salad dressings and mayo, sweeteners and other drinks and food items. Please be on the lookout for this chemical in your food/drinks.
- ERYTHORBIC ACID
- ERYTHORBIC ACID: This chemical is wide known for its compound to be in baby products, bath, eye makeup, fragrance, hair care, person hygiene, skin care, sun screen products. Also The short term side effects are: headaches, dizziness, fatigue, body flushing, hemolysis. The long term side effects are: kidney stones and it triggers gout symptoms. This chemical compound is also in other foods such as: Creams, cheeses, seasonings, cereals, wines, beer. and cured meats.
That one isn’t as bad as the first one, still has some side effects and is found in a lot of other person care products. It is really weird to me, that a lot of chemicals that I have found in foods and drinks are also in things we put on our bodies or use for other reasons that we would never even think they would be anywhere near our foods or drinks we consume.
I have been read in the past about how bad people would talk about people overreacting about the dangers in our foods. I promise to you I am saying now they are wrong for making fun of people that care about what the FDA is doing behind close doors to make the food and drug companies more money and harming our lives.
I know I am just a regular everyday human, that will one day have this website reach millions of people and with the support of my friends that have already connected to with this site. We will stand up to the harmful chemicals and dangers in the products we consume.
Don’t we all want to live the best way we can on earth and have healthy happy families that one day when we are dead and gone will make that difference that changes the way we eat our foods?
- GUM ARABIC: The main side effects are not real bad: bloating and mild diarrhea. The chemical works as a hardener and thickener in foods and other products such as: Glue, paint, watercolors, printing, and also found in incense.
This additive wasn’t to bad, still once again found in other products other than drinks or foods. Mountain Dew is a great drink and is consumed by billions every year and I promise most of the people consuming this drink has no idea what is inside: Until now.
IN CLOSING THANK YOU FOR BEING APART OF THIS JOURNEY TO THE TRUTH.
I believe if we live on this earth and aren’t careful with our bodies and when just agree with what the FDA says is ok to eat or drink. Then we will continue to die earlier and earlier every year and get cancers and illnesses from things we have never heard of and never have the understanding of what is going into our foods/drinks.
Without the knowledge on this website and the people standing with me to bring one voice of change to a world of chaos. I am truly thankful for the people that are here and I hope to have millions more soon. I will always know you were the first to take this journey with me. I hope all is well in your lives and I will keep changing the worlds view on the chemicals/additives found in the foods we consume on a daily basis. Thanks again and have a great night/day.
