Carbonation – Does it Really Suck the Calcium Out of Your Bones?

I’m sure many of you have heard that carbonation is bad for you, the reason being it sucks your bones dry of calcium, but did you know that there is little truth to this claim?

While many health articles actually still claim this, upon further investigation into these ‘studies’, it’s not actually carbonation that causes this extreme reaction, but instead, Coca Cola’s ingredients.

This is due to the fact that cola beverages have phosphorus, which can increase the loss of calcium from the body through the kidneys.
