Book Description

15 Feb 2012
Cola as popular as any fast food or snack and an industry that generates untold billions in revenues. So why are people saying all those nasty things about soft drinks? The answer is simple: All those terrible things are true. And while the facts may be hard to swallow, it is high time we look at the damage that has been done by our long-running love affair with the beverage industry. In their new book, KILLER COLAS, Dr. Nancy Appleton and G.N. Jacobs provide a startling picture of a greedy industry hell-bent on destroying our health, no matter what the cost. Over the last twenty-five years, the sale of fizzy, energy and sports drinks has exploded, as has the incidence of adult and childhood obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, cancer and stroke. In KILLER COLAS, the authors detail why this downward spiral has occurred. They look at the history and growth of the soft drink industry from fountain shops to multinational mega-corporations; they examine the industry's powerful influence over the media; and they look at the addictive and harmful ingredients these companies have added to their formulas. The authors also offer scientific evidence that links our growing consumption of soft drinks with our declining health. In the light of our health crisis, the consequences of our addiction to soft drinks can no longer be ignored. KILLER COLAS exposes the facts behind an addiction that is just as powerful and dangerous as our love of tobacco. Once you have read this book, you will never look at a soft drink in the same way.

You'll never want to drink another soda again. Great book, very informative, with testimonials from people who were extremely addicted to colas, diet colas, etc. Well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Nancy Appleton does it again! 15 April 2013
By HSF - Published on
I once again applaud Dr. Nancy Appleton for educating us about the dangers of sugar, particularly those hidden in our sodas, sports and energy drinks...all of which have added tremendously to the epidemic of childhood obesity, hypoglycemia and diabetes, hypotension, heart disease and most of today's health conditions and diseases.

Killer Colas is a book that must be read by parents, teachers and our community leaders so that they can band together to help our children. It is our responsibility to teach and show them that what they eat and drink directly effects how they think, feel and act.

Dr. Nancy Appleton and G.N. did a fantastic job. Be assured that what you have written will save many lives!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous Drinks 6 April 2013
By Kay B. Sheppard - Published on
For years we knew that soft drinks were very hard on our teeth. Thanks to this well-researched book we see how soft drinks affect our general health. They can even be addictive. When I see people with those huge containers of colas and other such drinks, I shudder to think how their health is being affected. Certainly our country's obesity epidemic is due in part to the liquid sugars people are pouring down their throats. Being health conscious, I stopped using sodas many years ago, this book confirms that I made a really good decision.

5.0 out of 5 stars EASY TO READ SCIENCE 27 Mar 2013
By Tiburon therapist - Published on
As a therapist I am always on the look-out for books regarding healthy eating and drinking. It is always something that comes up in the work that I do with my patients. What we eat and drink impacts our mental state along with sleep, exercise and our mindfulness. I found it easy to read and informative. Important information. Thanks.

This book was boring, in my opinion. All the things in this book were things I already knew. It was 'gimmikie'. I wish that I didn't waste my money on this book.
