Consuming soda based soft drink in excess can be harmful for the body.

A single can of soda based soft drink contains the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar.

This amount of sugar, especially in liquid form, skyrockets the blood sugar and causes an insulin reaction in the body.

Over time, this can lead to diabetes or insulin resistance, not to mention weight gain and other health problems.

Soft drink companies are the largest users of sugar in the country.

Soda contains phosphoric acid, which interferes with the body’s ability to absorb calcium and can lead to osteoporosis, cavities and bone softening.

Phosphoric Acid also interacts with stomach acid, slowing digestion and blocking nutrient absorption.

Most sodas contain caffeine, which has been linked to certain cancers, breast lumps, irregular heart beat, high blood pressure, and other problems.

The water used in soda is just simple tap water and can contain chemicals like chlorine, fluoride and traces of heavy metals.

There is absolutely no nutritional value in soda whatsoever. Not only are there many harmful effects of soda, but there are not even any positive benefits to outweigh them.

Soda is an unnatural substance that harms the body.
