So What's Wrong With Soda?

Although I've never been a big fan of soft drinks, these beverages have been effectively banned from my household, for the following reasons:

  • It contains extremely high levels of sugar, which is bad for you, or aspartame, which is worse.
  • It causes tooth decay and bone density loss. (Due mostly to the amount of sugar it contains.) This also increases the likelihood of broken bones and osteoporosis.
  • It promotes caffeine dependency.
