Top 10 Things You Need To Know About Mountain Dew. Yes, Even Diet

Mountain Dew Ingredients:

Ingredient #1: Sodium Benzoate
Number 1: One known cancer danger exists related to sodium benzoate. If you combine ascorbic acid (vitamin C) with sodium benzoate and potassium benzoate (another preservative), you get benzene. Benzene is a known carcinogen

Number 2: Sodium Benzoate chokes out your body’s nutrients at the DNA cellular level by depriving mitochondria cells of oxygen, sometimes completely shutting them down. Just as humans need oxygen to breathe, cells need oxygen to function properly and to fight off infection, including cancer

Ingredient #2: Sodium Citrate
Number 3:Been known to possibly cause Tetany- sudden-onset, intensely powerful contractions of your muscle groups

Number 4: Hypernatremia, or elevated sodium in the blood, is another possible side effect associated with sodium citrate

Ingredient #3: Erythorbic Acid
Number 5: Most soda brands contain “taste freshener” chemicals such as erythorbic acid and potassium benzoate. All of these chemicals are synthetic. Allergic reactions include nausea, vomiting, headache, diarrhea, breathless and chest tightness

Ingredient #4: Gum Arabic
Number 6: It can cause gas, bloating, and loose stools.

Ingredient #5: Calcium Disodium EDTA
Number 7:EDTA can harm the kidney and might make kidney disease worse. EDTA might interfere with blood sugar control because it can interact with insulin. EDTA can cause abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, low blood pressure, skin problems, and fever

Ingredient #6: Brominated Vegetable Oil (BVO)
Number 8: The real kicker in all this is that BVO has actually been banned in over 100 countries, and even the FDA considers this additive as unsafe, yet, so far, no measures have been taken to ban it’s usage here in this country

Number 9: At one time, bromine was even used to make sedatives, but then the FDA banned its usage around 1975, as it was found to trigger a whole host of psychiatric disorders
Ingredient #7: Yellow #5
Number 10: This chemical has been linked to severe allergic reactions, especially in asthmatics and is one of the food additives thought to be a cause of hyperactivity in children
