If there was one beverage you should lay off of, it is soda. Regardless if your soda is diet, not diet, natural, with sugar, or caffeine-free, you are still not doing your health a good thing when you drink soda. Soda contains high amounts of chemicals and compounds including phosphoric acid, which is a powerful acid that is used to preserve the soda. When you drink soda in any quantity, the acid in the soda leaches the bone-loving nutrients from their storage compartments, causing your bones to weaken over the course of your soda drinking habit. Consider making small changes to your lifestyle and dietary habits if you drink soda.
