And what is the effect?
77-year-old woman said that over the past 60 years she drank only Pepsi-Cola.
Jackie Paige, the great-grandmother of Carshalton, Surrey, says she starts every day with cans of soft drink and can drink up to four cans per day, says the Lad Bible.
She drank my first can in 1954 when she was only 13 years old, and since then every day drink Pepsi.
We know what you’re thinking.
“Well, sure, until that time, she probably already is sick with something” – but the heroine of this story, Jackie says it’s the only beverage she ever liked, and denies that she is dependent on him.
“Some people might think that’s weird, but to me anyway, explains Jackie, I saw her every day since 1954.
I don’t call it abuse. It’s just what I like. I love Pepsi from a bottle, only from banks. I like to drink it straight from the jar, and it is desirable that it was quite cold.
Even my children know if in the fridge is Pepsi, that’s my take and it is undesirable. They would love every day reminded me that it’s bad, but because they all see that I’m healthy and lived quite a long life, they are not even trying.
Maybe I’m just addicted to caffeine, who knows. The only thing I know – I am 77 years old and I still live.
Morning all I dream to drink a hot Cup of tea or coffee, and I dream of Pepsi.”
For over six decades Jackie drank about 93 440 cans, which is almost 3000 kg of sugar or 3 million sugar cubes. Yummy?
Despite this, Jackie does not believe that the soda she was hurt.
“They say that Pepsi has a negative impact on the health of the teeth, but I was a child during the war, and most people, like me, teeth are not in the best condition.
During my childhood I didn’t have toothpaste. Besides, I was too scared to go to the dentist.
I don’t think Pepsi has an impact on my health. I have always been very fit and healthy, especially up to 60 years.
I know others will say – but that’s my choice.”
In childhood, Jackie refused to drink milk or water and told that her mother had given her the lemonade, to something saw.
Now, in adulthood, little has changed. Jackie said:
“I never drink water, and even if I was dying of thirst, I would not”.
Jackie even named my dog Pepsi! But she adds:
“Honestly, I don’t know how I made it this long”.
Nicole Rotband, a registered dietitian and spokesperson for the British dietetic Association, said:
“The main problem is that the use of this kind of drink increases the risk of obesity, affect the teeth and increases the risk of diabetes and fatty hepatosis liver.
If a person has excess weight, it can also occur high blood pressure, which increases the risk of stroke.
However, it all depends on overall lifestyle such as regular physical activity, and eating relatively healthy food.
I would certainly not recommend to get involved in this, but if the rest of you adhere to the rules of right living – to indulge sometimes (moreover, if you do not see negative consequences)”.
Do you often drink soda?
