  • Please drink responsibly :-)
    Despite the fact that low to moderate alcohol use may be fine for an adult's health, scientists tell us that binge drinking increases a person's risk for many health problems, including high blood pressure, stroke, cardiovascular disease, liver disease, neurological damage and injury.
  • Remember alcohol has calories inside!
    Did You know, that each gram of alcohol has 7 calories?
    Compare that to 4 calories per gram of carb and prtotein, or 9 calories per gram of fat.

    Drinking only a shot of spirt you consume 97 calories,
    a glass of wine - about 123 calories and
    a glass of regular beer has about 154 calories!
  • Convert Salt tsps to Sodium mg easily
    Salt (NaCl) is not excactly sodium (Na).
    It is not right to use these terms as synonyms.
    The FDA recommended limit of sodium is 2,300 mg per day (or even less - about 1500 mg while one is on low sodium diets).
    This is much less than the weight of salt.
    (5,750 mg per day or 3,750 mg for low sodium diet) and not so convenient to calculate.
    Know how much sodium is in your salt - without a calculator:
    1/4 tsp salt = 600 mg sodium
    1/2 tsp salt = 1200 mg sodium
    3/4 tsp salt = 1800 mg sodium
    1 tsp salt = 2300 mg sodium
  • 16 tsp of sugars per serving
    This volume includes both naturally occurring from ingredients and specially added sugars.
    USDA tells us that last years each American consumed an average 130 pounds of caloric sweeteners per year!
    That works out to 30 tsp of sugars per day approximately 480 extra calories!
    Just to think: Eating just 200 more calories daily than your body requires for body functioning and exercise leads to a 20-pound weight gain in a year.
  • Contains phosphoric acid
    Phosphoric acid is used as an additive to acidify foods and beverages such as various colas and jams.
    It provides them a tangy or sour taste and then, to mask and balance the acidity they add a huge amounts of sweeteners.
    Remember! It’s a corrosive acid and can form toxic fumes when it comes into contact with alcohols, ketones and other organic compounds.
    Phosphoric acid has been linked to lower bone density, dental erosion, risk of developing kidney disease.
    BTW: The clear sodas that contained citric acid didn’t have the same risk.

    American Journal of Clinical Nutrition: Colas, But Not Other Carbonated Beverages, Are Associated With Low Bone Mineral Density in Older Women: The Framingham Osteoporosis Study
    American Journal of Clinical Nutrition: Carbonated Beverages and Urinary Calcium Excretion
    Epidemiology: Carbonated Beverages and Chronic Kidney Disease
    General Dentistry: Commercial Soft Drinks: pH and in Vitro Dissolution Of Enamel
    Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine: Teenaged Girls, Carbonated Beverage Consumption, and Bone Fractures
    Phosphoric acid has been linked to lower bone density in some epidemiological studies, including a discussion in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
