Oleda Baker on What’s Wrong With Drinking Soda – Guest Post

As you can see from her photo, Senior Supermodel Oleda Baker doesn’t age. I interviewed Oleda last month. She is a treasure trove of information on everything this blog stands for, so I asked her if she would share some of her ideas with us. She has written 10 books on beauty and health. Her latest, Breaking the Age Barrier – Great Looks and Health at Every Age – was released in November 2010 and is available from Amazon or from her website www.oleda.com


Oleda chose soft drinks, a subject in which I am extremely interested. I will put in links at the end of Oleda’s item to previous blog posts.

Some people drink soda as if it were water, some even drink it instead of water. This is a bad mistake. Granted, the primary ingredient is water, but, with all the other “stuff” it contains it can have a seriously harmful effect on your entire body. Drinking several cans of soda a day is a sure-fire way to damage your health.

The Mayo Clinic said, “Soda was once considered an occasional treat, but consumption has steadily increased over the last three decades. Many Americans drink soda every day.

Designer Salt – How about Just Less Salt?

Pepsi is working on a designer salt to take sodium off its Lay’s potato chips, the Wall Street Journal reported today. There’s a link to the story on our news page here where you also can check out other food news of the day,

What a fascinating concept – salt with less sodium in it. Food companies are starting to feel the heat over salt, fearing that local, state and national governments will start forcing them to take salt out of their processed foods.

Can a potato chip work with this new salt? Pepsi hopes so. I actually buy low-salt chips on the rare occasion I still buy potato chips these days. Low-salt can be fine, but in general stay away from chips and salty things. It’s hard to find anything good, nutritionally, about them.

Editor’s Note: The sodium we consume is a major health consideration. The American Heart Association recommends no more than 1500 mg of sodium a day for adults. That’s why it is critical to read the labels on the foods we eat. Many foods have a high sodium content and we don’t even consider it.
