If you are, this article may make you think twice before you take another sip of soda! Soda is devoid of any nutrients, you are basically drinking fake sugar water. Some of the bad side effects of drinking too much soda are memory loss, dramatic increase of fat build up leading to diabetes and/or obesity, accelerated aging and increased risk of cancer.
There are plenty of healthier alternatives to soda. Try drinking seltzer water instead. You can even add some fruit to it, like strawberries or blueberries, for that extra natural sugar you are craving.
