Fruit juice, non-dairy milks & some soft drinks contain undesirable chemicals that could be harmful to our health.
A new study reveals that our drinks contain high levels of toxic chemicals such as lead, cadmium, and arsenic, as well as other elements.
"these beverages can be a major route through which toxic metals and essential elements enter the human body and thus have toxicological and nutritional significance."
The Concentrations of 25 Elements in Fruit Juices, Non-Dairy Milks, Softdrinks & More:
The study measured the concentrations of 25 elements in soft drinks, both in terms of specific quantities and percentages. The study found that most of the tested elements exceeded recommended drinking water standards, which could result in health issues if consumed over time. The element with the highest level detected was zinc, followed closely by lead, copper, cadmium, and chromium.
The Dangerous Elements Found in Our Drinks:
Toxic metals such as Pb, Cd, As, and Ni, were detected in soft drinks, and their presence can be attributed to contamination during the manufacturing process. Additionally, rarely studied elements such as Uranium (U), Antimony (Sb), Thorium (Th), Thallium (Tl), Molybdenum (Mo), Boron (B), and Strontium (Sr) were detected.
Research has shown that exposure to these chemicals over time can lead to adverse health outcomes such as hepatocellular carcinomas, renal diseases, and nephritic syndrome.
The Impact of Drink Ingredients on Element Concentrations:
Mixed fruit juices and plant-based milk were found to provide elevated concentrations of most of the elements detected. This finding indicates that the production of these beverages plays a significant role in contaminating these products. The reasons for this contamination remain under investigation, but it is speculated that the ingredients used in the manufacturing process may be the cause.
