10 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Drink Soda

10_soda_factsAmerica is, not surprisingly, the world’s highest per-capita consumer of soda. I knew sodas are unhealthy beverages, but I didn’t realize quite how bad they were until I saw these ten disturbing facts about soda.

  1. Increased risk of osteoporosis
  2. Increased risk of kidney stones
  3. Soda is addictive
  4. It’s an expensive habit
  5. Potential for tooth decay
  6. Mountain Dew Syndrome
  7. Extremely high phosphorus intake
  8. Ingredients not listed on the label
  9. Potential link to cancer (still not proven, but very possible)
  10. Just look at this video about how much sugar is in soda

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to think twice before I order a Coke again. And I’m definitely going to start monitoring my family’s soda consumption habits.

Any other reasons to add to the list? Do you let your kids drink soda?
