Soda

Is drinking soda every day a bad thing? How much is too much? I drink about one-two a day. I try to drink more juices, teas, etc., but I simply don't like them as much as I like soda. I have a slight caffeine addiction (I think), in that's I've had caffeine every day for years, and get a headache when I don't have it in a day (towards evening). (Truth be told, I've got other bigger things on my plate to worry about than the caffeine--I'm more worried about the acid in soda.)

Re: Soda

The big issue with soda is that it's empty calories. If you can spare them, more power to you. Water is better than everything else you mentioned, though.

Re: Soda

I've heard sometime similar to what mnl22 said . . . but that it is the phosphorous acid that leeches out nutrients (not just calcium). I have never had a good look at whether every soda contains it; but I am quite sure most of the colas do. The other issue is carbonation . . . and this is according to my dentist . . . he says it leeches the enamel off your teeth over time; and that is in every soda, plus some non-soda items.

Oh, we all choose our poisons; so you really need to look at your entire eating plan and decide.
