|The bone robber|
Soda pop contains a significant amount of phosphorus, an acid-forming mineral. Research has shown that phosphorus can interfere with the skeleton's ability to absorb calcium. A natural whole foods diet, free of soft drinks, is most important for teenagers, when 40 to 60 percent of peak bone mass is built.
As Winter approaches here in the Northeast US it is not uncommon for many to experience a cold or respiratory infection. A chief reason for this dynamic, and for some this happens every year, is that they fail to change their diet relative to the season. Colder weather requires a warmer diet. We all recognize in the midst of a summer heat wave that cool or cold beverages and foods feel good, because they cool our internal body temperature downward or seemingly so.
