I certainly love to drink soda and I'll be the first person to admit that. Soda tastes great, it's served everywhere drinks are served. You can get soda at sporting events, restaurants, airports, train stations, concerts, just about anywhere humans are, there is readily available soda. But the reason that soda is so tasty is the ingredients that are pumped into it, and those ingredients are harmful to the human body.
The first ingredient to be mentioned is sugar. Each can of soda contains 10 teaspoons of sugar, which is about the same as 10 sugar packets. It doesn't take a genius to know this that is unhealthy. Next to mention is high fructose corn syrup, which is genetically-modified corn. When the corn is being modified, mercury is used in the process, which can be deadly. Next is caffeine, most sodas contain caffeine, which has been linked to certain cancers, breast lumps, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, and many other problems. With all of these unhealthy ingredients in soda, there are absolutely no healthy ingredients in it, so there is zero justification to consume the beverage.
The bottom line is this: soda is harmful to your teeth, digestive system, liver, kidneys, and makes you thirstier. If you really want live a healthy lifestyle, you have to resist the great taste of soda and simply drink a glass of club soda with gingerfruit.
