The Cons of Sugary Drinks

It's summer time, and whenever I go out for a walk, I see groups of youngsters enjoying their time, each with a can of sugary beverages. But alas! The warnings come clear and loud about the health hazards of sugary drinks. A recent study sounded the alarm that sugary drinks may lead to an estimated death of 184,000 each year worldwide. 

Harvard scientists say that sugary drinks contribute to the obesity epidemic. The average size of sugar-sweetened soda or fruit punch provides about 150 calories of sugar, mainly from high fructose corn syrup.


The 150 calories equal to about ten tsp of table sugar. Imagine ten tsp of sugar in a single can of sweetened beverage. It is just like slow poison, which will cut our life road someday. Hope I have scared you to death.

Why Should You Drink Rooibos Tea

Are you an avid tea drinker? Then let me introduce you to the rooibos tea which is healthy and will perfectly satisfy your taste buds. Rooibos tea has a fascinating tradition behind it. This tea grows in a small mountainous area in the region of Western Cape in South Africa. Traditionally the local people would climb the mountains and cut the fine needle-like leaves from the wild plants. Then they tie them together and bring them down the steep slopes using donkeys. The leaves are then left to dry in the sun. The story goes like this; Rooibos seeds were minuscule, and it was hard to collect or cultivate it.
