"Contributes to a higher risk of early death by 'any cause'"
So you're telling me if I drink enough Dr. Pepper that I have a higher chance of dying by being suffocated by a pornstar's breasts on the private yacht I won in the lottery? *opens can* well you can sign me right up
On a serious note, I quit soda and all other carbonated sugary drinks last May. Coming up on a full year with no soda. I'm proud of myself, and the results are more than was expected at first. I lost a good bit of weight immediately and my mental state improved over time. It's hard at first, but after a while you don't miss them anymore. I went from 4 or 5 cans a day to 0. So I think anybody can do it too.
@CircuitPwne, i mean thats a LOT of cans of soda a day
@Fightin First, oh it was. That's my point though. It was an addiction to a terrible extent but I was able to break it, and I believe anyone else can too.
@CircuitPwne, so what do you drink? I can't drink water because it taste like metal. Even bottled water. I don't like tea.
Guess I'll have to up my soda intake then.
Next you douches will tell me all the porn I watch is ruining my mind, too.
I've never liked soda so I just consider myself the control group part of the experiment in regards to the whole "soda bad, soda kill you" situation.
My great grandmother drank several cases of Coca-Cola each week. She drank so much that her house was it's own stop for the Coca-Cola delivery guy, and she lived to be 96
If I stopped drinking soda I'd just drink nothing but milk, if it counts sugar drinks than caprisuns are out so pure milk, nothing else.... Mostly whole or chocolate.
And what's the problem with diet soda then?
@ThePandaPool , aspartame is super bad for you, apparently.
@ThePandaPool , studies have shown that your body treats it as sugar because it tastes sweet and releases insulin to break it down except it not really sugar. This can actually lead to type 2 diabetes. Some studies show diet is worse than regular for your health. As a guy who drinks 1-2 regular soda a day, just drink water.
Soda is bad for you? Next they'll be saying cigarettes and alcohol are bad too!
Sour drinks make you feel refreshed because they cause you to salivate. Lemon juice in carbonated water is one of the best summer drinks you could ever imagine and it contains only as much sugar as the lemon juice. I also like lime with a bit of salt. Diet drinks are even worse because they contain zero calorie sweeteners which trains your brain to disassociate sweetness with calories. So you end up teaching yourself to eat more
Like straight up? People drink straight mixer?
