Is Carbonated Water Actually Bad For You? The Answer.

March 4, 2016 by Rachel Gulmi
shefinds | Style

Obviously, we all know that drinking soda isn’t great for our health. Remember what happens one hour after drinking a can of Coke? Yuck. With that in mind, many people have been switching from soda to carbonated water aka seltzer water. Is this equally bubbly drink any better than soda? Many people claim that carbonated water leaches calcium from bones, causes tooth decay and more.

First off, it’s important to check the label on any seltzer water to make sure it doesn’t contain sodium or added sweetners. Time spoke with five experts about the matter and all five said seltzer water is perfectly healthy to consume. One doctor says switching to carbonated water can be a good alternative for someone who wants to kick their soda habit.

Two bone researchers also say carbonation does not leach calcium from your bones. Sara Bleich, PhD, associate professor in health policy and management at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, says “Seltzer water is like drinking regular water. It’s harmless.” That means seltzer water can be counted toward your daily water intake!

Keep on drinking!
