Just how bad are cola’s?
According to Dr. Kurt Grange PhD, from The Pack of Life:
Hydrochloric acid is the strongest acid there is. It registers 1.5 on the pH scale. All Cola type soft drinks register at 2 on the pH scale. They are very acid. In fact all colas are 100,000 times more acidic than pure water at a pH of 7 or your blood at a pH of 7.4. In fact , most soft drinks register no higher than a 3.5 on the pH scale. Obviously, one of the very best ways to keep your body acidic thereby guaranteeing the development of degenerative diseases is to drink soft drinks , especially colas.
When you drink just one 12 ounce glass of soda, you must then drink 32 glasses of alkaline water to neutralize the acid from that soda.
Consuming pure alkaline water is the BEST ways to keep the body alkaline and healthy.
Add to that lots of leafy greens in salads, freshly made juices and smoothies adds a powerful 1 – 2 punch to and alkaline, pH balancing lifestyle.
