2. Soft drinks are very acidic. They have acidity of 2.5 the equivalent of vinegar. Fish die in water wt PH of 4 and above 10. Compare the acidity of soft drinks with car battery of PH 1 and pure water of neutral 7 and see d harm u are doing yourself. This is very harmful to d body no matter d level of sugar in disguise that makes u want 4 more. The high acidity causes or worsens ulcer, causes kidney stone, dehydration, heart burn and to worsen, it increases the thirst 4 more.
3. Do u know that soft drinks or sodas have no nutritional value. They contain mostly added sugar and acids such as carbonic and phosphoric which are harmful. The so called diet soda which contain ASPARTAME- an artificial sweetener in place of sugar. Manufacturers claim aspartame is not harmful as it serves the role of sugar and contribute amino acids to d body. But recent research has showed that aspartame when taken in is broken down into phenylalanine, aspartate and then methanol. The methanol is further converted to formaldehyde, a carcinogen that causes cancer.
So,drink with CAUTION.
