If you are drinking soda, it could be the reason you are having trouble losing weight and many also be causing many of your health issues.  Soda is made with high fructose corn syrup, the worse kind of sweetener on the market.  It quickly converts into fat in your liver.  Soda drinkers have a MUCH higher chance of developing diabetes, about 80% higher, and  researchers say the swelling on your brain is similar to that found in those with dementia and Alzheimer’s.  The caffeine raises your blood pressure, and the preservatives mess with your DNA and could lead to liver cirrhosis and Parkinson’s. The phosphoric acid leaches calcium from your bones and teeth causing osteoporosis.  The BPA in the plastic bottles and liners of the cans disturbs your endocrine system causing reproductive disorders.

So, if this was your car and you were told not to put something in it because it will ruin it, would you put it in there anyway?  Why, then, would you do it to your body?
