A recent health study has revealed that consumption of aerated drinks spiral up the process of ageing. According to www.dailymail.co.uk, soft drinks containing frizz possess phosphate which are known to have harmful effects on the ageing process and their long term consumption can also lead to serious health problems. Phosphate which is also found in processed food items including meat, bread and cakes tends to make muscles and skin weak and its prolonged intake can also cause serious damage to kidney and heart. The study was conducted by the researchers at the Harvard University.
As reported by www.nhs.uk, the research was carried out on a number of mice who were made to consume different amounts of phosphate, in order to examine the effect of the mineral on the ageing process. The findings revealed that high intake of phosphate can trigger the ageing process.
Increased cola consumption is also linked to pancreatic cancer, brittle bones, paralysis and muscle weakness. ‘Humans need a healthy diet and keeping the balance of phosphate in the diet may be important for a healthy life and longevity. Avoid phosphate toxicity and enjoy a healthy life.’ remarked the team of scientists. The research study was published in the journal called Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology.
