It is safe to say that a lot of people enjoy drinking soda. The reason why many people enjoy consuming is that it contains a lot of sugar from high fructose syrup.
Aside from that, soft drinks also contain another set of additives, chemicals, and artificial sweeteners to make it sweeter and refreshing. But did you know that sodas can damage our bodies more than we could know?
Take a look at some of the detrimental effects of drinking soda to our own health:
Softdrink can lead to osteoporosis because it contains phosphates and phosphoric acid that could make our bones brittle and weak. It can also interfere with calcium absorption. Too much intake of it can lead to heart and kidney problems, muscle degeneration, and can make you age faster.
2. Weight Gain
As previously mentioned, soda contains sugar which could lead to the dramatic increase of fats in our body. Worse, it could also lead to obesity. Surely, you don’t want to have that.
Soft drink contains a very popular additive called artificial caramel which has two contaminants called 2-methylimidazole and 4-methylimidazole. An intake of 16-micrograms of 4-methylimidazole is very life-threatening already and the scary part is that most sodas have 200 micrograms per 20 oz bottle.
4. Tooth Decay
With too much sugar comes with tooth decay. So, if you want to avoid having tooth decay, it would be better if you refrain yourself from consuming it.
5. It Could Lead To Serious Medical Condition

1. Non-Liquor Fatty Liver Problem
