Thank you Ellyn
News at site for others that don't get there

"After reading the information below you will stop consuming soda drinks:

Extra pounds
Soda is known to cause obesity. If you consume a single can every day you will gain more than one pound every month. Diet soda is not healthy as well, as people who consume diet soda do not lose weight. The artificial sweeteners found in soda drinks cause many physiological and hormonal changes.

Liver damage
Soda causes liver damage. If you drink excessive amount of soda drinks you can get liver cirrhosis which is also caused by alcohol overuse.

Tooth decay
Soda damages the tooth enamel. The acids found in soda are even more dangerous than solid sugar found in candies.

Kidney stones and chronic kidney disease
Soda drinks also contain high amount of phosphoric acid which causes stone formation in the urinary tract. Consuming one quart(less than three 12- ounce cans) of soda in one week may increase the risk of developing kidney stones by 15 percent

Any sugary food increases the risk of diabetes. Consuming soda also affects the body’s ability to process sugar. This may be the answer to the fact that the number of Americans with type 2 diabetes has tripled from 6.6 million in 1980 to 20.8 million today."

Like cigarettes, soda shouldn't exist, and I often wonder why it does.

Despite headline after headline like the one above, people continue to purchase soda and cigarettes.

Stopped drinking soda years ago. On a rare occasion I enjoy a rootbeer float, otherwise avoid it completely. Thanks for the post.

Thanks - so glad that I never liked any kind of soda!! There's nothing like water or a freshly pressed juice ... or "Karkadee" (made of dried Hibiscus leaves) ... and there are so many other natural drinks.

Noted. Thanks, Ellyn.
Personally, I love my sun-tea. A soda now and then seems reasonable....but multiple sodas on a daily basis is definitely going to send you to the doctor.

Thanks a lot. Have just finished making my own home-made traditional lemonade to drink with natural cold water. So better and very cooling. And costs next to nothing!

Never liked the pretend sweetener in soda so never drink it. I drink a regular one about four or five times per year.

Canned + bottled diabetes.

Soda companies own huge amounts of stock in the "heath care" sector,'s just a coincidence, no connection.
