There's More in That Can of Soda Than You Paid For: Part One, Hormones
In your body, insulin regulates the activity of cells and tissues like carbohydrate and fat metabolism. When insulin isn't properly regulated, sugar accumulates in the blood instead of getting into and feeding cells. This throws the body’s balance out of whack, causing a disease called diabetes.

Now you know. It's not just the soda you paid for in the can that is working against you, it's also the can itself. What a special, added bonus huh?
The thing that is really interesting is that soda cans without BPA in the lining are available.
