You’ve probably heard that drinking soda is bad for you but do you know just how bad it actually is? Experts say that soda is the #1 cause of obesity among a myriad of other health concerns.

Soda is packed full of sugar and empty calories. Cutting soda out of your diet will help you instantly start shedding pounds.
Less weight means less back pain and healthier joints. Plus, that reduction in sugar significantly lowers your risk of developing diabetes.
Soda’s chemical make-up wreaks havoc on all parts of our digestive system. The sweeteners found in soda are especially harmful to your gut health.
They can disrupt healthy bacteria found within the gut which in turn can throw off our entire system, including the way our body reacts to infections.
Caramel coloring in soda is guilty of having artificial phosphorus. Phosphorus naturally occurs in healthy foods like grains but the artificial phosphorus in soda does more harm than good.
The artificial form of phosphorus essentially forces your bones to absorb it which can send calcium out the window and significantly weaken bones.
High sugar intake can cause hair thinning and also make your skin age faster. Of course aging is part of life, but drinking sugary sodas can deliver wrinkles and bald spots to our doorstep a lot faster than many of us would hope!
Many sodas have caffeine. Yes, caffeine gives us a little boost and helps us power through our busy schedules, but caffeine also increases blood pressure, raises blood sugar levels, and increases our heart rate.
Research has even shown that people who drink sugary sodas every day have a significantly higher risk of having a heart attack. Cutting soda out of your diet will have your heart happier in no time.
If you’re struggling to part with your sugary soda addiction, there are healthy alternatives. Carbonated water can give you that exciting burst of bubbles that you crave and fruit-infused water will give you a pop of flavor. Combine the two and you’ll say farewell to soda in no time!
