Ignorance is Bliss....

....until it kills you. The old cliche "what you don't know can't hurt you," doesn't apply to nutrition. Purposely turning a blind eye to unhealthy food choices is terminally naive. Trust me, being a 'Freakin' Eurekan,' I am all for bliss, but not if it's going to cost me my health.

I'll admit, there is something refreshing about the sweet taste and fizzy feeling of a soda embracing your taste buds on the heels of a meal. Or is there? We all know it's bad for us. And those of us that are conscious consumers feel guilty if/when we do enjoy the occasional soda.  Would it help us stop drinking it if we stopped pretending we don't know it's harmful?

Here is a visual for you to use every time you crave a soda. Picture the acidic chemical laden beverage effecting each of part of your body as it goes down. Soda makes a lasting impression on our innards, and it's not something to be proud of.
