According to Dr. Heather MacLean Walters, author of Age Protection (MCE Press), some of our favorite fizzy drinks can cause ailments like heart disease and cancer, and its all due to the Advanced Glycenation End (AGE) Factor, a harmful combination of sugar and protein found in caramel-colored soft drinks.
Walters argues that the glycenation in cans of soda is evil, and very had to resist due to sodas enticing, bubbly goodness.
But while the effects of too much AGE Factor could be deadly, Walters says they arent reversible.
In fact, she says sticking to a diet plan titled the Rainbow Connection, where you eat naturally colorful foods and drink fluids other than soda will prevent your health from fizzling.
But for those who still need their sweet fix, Walters suggests eating a slice of apple pie instead of guzzling a gassy drink, which helps offset AGE.
