Re: ~ 100 oz. of soda per day: Long-term effects?

With your busy lifestyle you definitely need a lot of calories for energy. I would guess that you need more than the average person. But getting those calories from soda is a really bad idea and that bad idea has become a bad habit. I say "habit" but I believe it's more like an addiction.

I believe there will be long term negative effects, unless you have great genes and the rest of your lifestyle is near perfect. In any case, I wouldn't take the risk of drinking that much soda. It could be decades before ill effects materialize. It's like smoking or being overweight: Some people seem to get away with it for 30, 40 or 50 years. But there's usually some price to pay down the road.
