I HATE GOUT
Friday, April 08, 2016
I used to get gout on occasion and always thought it was from the uric acid in meat (not much wine for me, if any), but I've found that for me it's SODA! After giving up soda for about 8 years I didn't get gout again until I drank quite a bit of plain sparkling water over several days because it's no calorie/no sugar. BAM, I got gout worse than ever. I believe it's from the phosphates. If you've had gout you know it's terribly painful. I am hoping to sound helpful, not preachy.
ps: That was several years ago so I am convinced it was the soda :)
