Fructose in Soda and Gout

Gout affects an estimated two to five million Americans and it accounts for about 5% of all cases of arthritis.  This painful form of arthritis targets big toe of your foot most commonly, then ankle, knee and spine in that order. Studies have shown an alarming trend between the increase in gout cases and the consumption of high levels of fructose.  Sodas have high levels of fructose anywhere from 58% to 65% in the more popular brands.

If you or your loved ones have gout, you need to stay away from soda.  So instead of grabbing that quick soda, grab your water bottle and you’re ready to go![1]
