Soda is one of the most popular soft drinks of our time. Unfortunately, along with the increased popularity comes a number of increased health risks. Most sodas contain very large quantities of sugar. This sugar often comes in some refined form, like high-fructose corn syrup, which is even more dangerous than regular sugar and is known to contain mercury.
Diet sodas often contain aspartame or some other form of artificial sweetener, which is no better and often does more damage to the individual. Consuming large quantities of these beverages on a regular basis — as many do — easily is responsible for a number of health issues today.
