How Many People Have Died of Drinking Soda?

By Brian Lemay 57 comments

harvard university just recently
released a study indicating that a soda can be linked to death okay out so i have issues with the study
will discuss that the before we do that i let me give you the results they found
out that about two hundred thousand or one hundred eighty thousand deaths
worldwide occur because of the over consumption of soda now they notice that at that the death
rate is actually hire in poorer countries especially in latin america and the
caribbean how but when you look at the united states specifically uh… that researchers believe that set
a related deaths accounted for about twenty five thousand deaths in the
united states in twenty ten now this is a five-year study and they used to have worldwide acinfo
uh… some of which was provided by the world health
organization i said also note that this study has not
been published in a peer review journal yet ob so i’m very curious to see what
the methodology as i’m curious to see if they can actually find like a causal
link or if this is just correlation now they point out that cardiovascular
disease diabetes cancer allot of chronic diseases sell out where the other factors of
played a role i can you really pinpoint that it’s sold at a cost this what
they’re saying it’s a linkedin then that that’s just that’s another word for correlated
with unique non night the ride there’s no free a way that they could
say that caused it but they would say that you know we’d get so there was com was
introduced in was it was cheap to buy a in this country starting this year we
saw a rise in cardiovascular disease that correlate with a and the guy that i
friends i look i’ve never been to mexico but friends who said that the saw like
their family was around there was a soda for a longer time or
was it commoner was affordable it’s become much more common much more
portable especially the cities and you know that combines some
westernization of the diet though bc rates and countries like mexico an
imaginary flat in our country’s a two-star rocketed and so is it a hundred eighty thousand
preventable deaths per year i have no idea but it’s almost certainly influencing i think that it’s definitely one factor
in a long list of uh… you know certain things that make you do unhealthy that make you faxed it’s that
availability of cheap processed moves that’s also playing a role i think i’d be eased issue with the way
we’re handling obesity epidemic is we’re just like focusing on one thing and one
thing only when in reality there needs to be like a comprehensive plan to come
back we’ll be seeing you can just focus on salida now with that being said i’d just wanna
know out that of course so that is extremely unhealthy it doesn’t matter if
it’s diet so that is a matter of its regular so that it’s empty calories it’s not good for
you it has become a goals in it and then this is all stuff that you guys already
know i wish that weekend be more convincing when it comes
to drinking water or unsweetened iced tea or something that is it so disastrous for your help and i think about this way uh… aside
interactive web i mean there there was a point i wasn’t like tenth grade and i
got back and a half out because i was drinking
like juice juice is also not good for you and to sugary people think that it’s
healthy it’s not healthy i was drinking juice soda all that stuff and then i
realized some drinking the juice and the soda
faces drink water already and cutting out the kind of calories a day so just
doing that alone helped you lose the weight pretty quickly that’s true but
with what are the circuit is coming very interesting flavors so determined the flavors much virginia but i think it would be a
little like when we tell them not to soda again we’re not sorry i did not
okay can i just be honest about a year and a second out of the of liquid are i
think it i don’t i don’t give a shit what you guys train you can shrink like actually there as soon as you wake up in the morning
right i’m saying it because i care about people’s hearts right so i’m just giving
advice what what you do with that advice is your business right so that that’s
all it is yes yet would we um… like when we did tentative support for something like
the new york city so that there’s something without a doubt in a few
support that but i think it should be banned but you can you can tax things to make it
more expensive or make it a little bit harder to find like we do that with
cigarettes and alcohol on things like that already uh… and we’re not saying that you
should be in these things some people might say we just think that marijuana
should be legal that give you cancer and stuff like that which i think it’s
debatable in that we also think that it should be
able to be taxed or regulate in some fashion arts and
that we understand that deaths caused by soda uh… are voluntary deaths to some
extent that’s when most people say we’re there should be any ban on things like
that for co-sponsor because people do it themselves that’s sort of true these deaths so far voluntary to the extent that you don’t
think that the billions of dollars spent on advertising isn’t anyway money well
spent but you apparently think that
advertising is complete waste of money growth we have to concede that if it
leads to some extent not voluntary that this advertising doesn’t like the
psychologically and makes us more likely to consume
things that are necessarily healthy forests yep definitely i i agree with you i mean
and i and to see the absolute clear as if the
you know the what you said wasn’t clear enough and not for banning so that’s you know i
i i before health campaigns and frenetic eighteen
people letting people know what the reality is because even though we all think that everyone
is educated on how unhealthy so dance that’s not true there people in middle
america they drink soda on a regular basis and they think that
it’s a relief i do think that you are supposed to have set out to dry or
choose or whatever it is that hike up caloric uh… beverage with every meal
but that’s not the that the truth obviously you have to let
people know what they’re doing to their bodies so i think information and education is
power and that’s that’s all that i want to push for

So….too much of anything is bad…I just don't know how much is too much. Now I am going to yell at you for not knowing how much is too much either. Great logic.

Based on how anal Ana has been about weight loss in past videos, I would need some old photos of "fat" Ana to believe her story completely. Her past reactions make me think that "fat" in her eyes is 120lbs, which, at her height, would be fine.

Cannabis does not cause cancer. Nor does tobacco. However taking dried plant materials and inhaling the combusted byproducts is carcinogenic by nature. The problem is with the method of ingestion, not the plant itself.

Wasn't there a study that showed that chewing tobacco does indeed cause gum, esophageal, and pancreatic cancers?

It feels great knowing that I was trained to be a scientist and I can use what I learned in college to properly evaluate scientific evidence, unlike everyone else here who has no clue what they are talking about, basing their decisions mostly on emotional chemophobia. It's actually kind of sad, seeing blatant ignorance pervade society in such a way. Science is largely in agreement that artificial sweeteners are harmless. A few crazies disagree. Nice avatar by the way, it's a great movie.

No one said you can't have your diet coke. They just said it's unhealthy for you. Ana literally said that.

Marijuana can't give you cancer, that's not debatable. In fact it's actually been proven to the contrary. That it actually kills cancer cells. It's a lot safer than people think. It's actually one of the safest things on the planet to consume, even more so when you consider that it's a "drug". Unlike with pills, and heroine, it's not possible to become physically addicted to Marijuana. It's far safer to consume than the food most of us eat each day.

My comment was meant to be a little dramatized and implied I know it's unhealthy but it's the only unhealthy thing I do.

It also implied that you thought someone was telling you to quit drinking soda.

No one told you to quit drinking soda, so it makes absolutely no sense to act as if I'm stating the obvious, by explaining that no one told you to stop drinking soda.

This video is about soda being unhealthy and saying we should drink water instead. You were pointing out the obvious.

I was stating that no one told you that you had to stop drinking soda, so no I wasn't stating the obvious.

They forgot to look into dementia deaths. Sugar lowers levels of brain-derived neurotropic factor and fat people have a higher rate of dementia.

Are you trying to make a point? At what point does smoke in your lungs become an okay thing? Is weed smoke "less" harmful than cigarette smoke? Maybe, but so what? Does that mean it's okay to pump marijuana smoke into your lungs? No. Try again.

In some parts of Latin America there is cheaper with one liter of cocacola than one liter of wather. That is messed up big time! People cannot afford wather so they drink coca cola. The ironic thing is that it takes three liters of wather to produce one liter och coca cola so the coca cola factory is stealing all the wather from the area to produce coce instead and sell it cheaper than wather.. God bless the free market system…

I drank soda from Mexico & it's much better than the one from the U.S.
The soda from Mexico tasted better & it didn't hurt my stomach. However, the one from the U.S. doesn't taste as good as the one from Mexico & it makes my stomach hurt bad & stomach problems. I actually have challenged myself now to do the pepsi challenge meaning I will not drink it for at least 21 days to start with & keep going from there. So far it's been 10 days & this coming from a person that drank 2-3 cans per day this really is great improvement on my way to better health! 
I think the real concern is the soda & other foods in the U.S.

the more people drink soda the more they get sick, not even a Doctor will tell you its bad for you, beside that even drinking Juice before 5-6 hours of sleeping is bad for you but warnings like this make the big companies lose money we only find out what we are sick

look at how much public opinion has changed, he said, "some people say smoking marijuana is linked to cancer" Who says that now? Funny how people memories are so short. Perfect example of the inconsistent conservative propaganda, and it even worked on tyt

Well yeah, if you are drinking hundreds of grams of sugar every day, you are going to die. It's not because it's "soda and it has chemicals!", it's because you are taking in way too much sugar.
