When I was (much) younger, there wasn't much said about soft drinks actually being bad for you. Now I know differently. We have a friend who drinks - and I'm not kidding - a case of pop a day. His teeth are rotting, his tongue is fissured, and he has some minor digestion problems.

IMO, if we are talking fully sugared, I'd say no, not healthy or good at all on a daily/regular basis. Empty junk calories that just pile the weight on. <:=\ Rot one's teeth, could lead to diabetes issues. Why are KIDS becoming diabetic? Drinking umpteen sodas a day, sugared fruit juices, etc. <:O

If diet, o.k. But again not nutritious. But neither is coffee or tea, for that matter. ;) And you never know about the artificial sweeteners being healthy long term. Who knows if there won't be health warnings, cancer warnings, in a decade or more, like has happened in the past? Consuming chemicals regularly is not a good idea, IMO. And some diet sodas have sodiium, which should be a concern for people with high blood pressure, etc., that should be on low sodium diets.

Do you think regular consumption of soft drinks can be harmful to your health?


Yes, carbonation can be an embarrassment to health, especially in public.
