How Soda Impacts Your Health and Healthy Soda Alternatives
I constantly get ask, “Is drinking soda really that bad for me?” I am not much of a soda drinker, never was as a kid either, so in some ways it is hard for me to relate to soda lovers. What I say to people is based on the research and particularly the ingredients (sugar, which can be sucrose or high-fructose corn syrup, food coloring, phosphoric acid) in soda, if you are going to drink it, drink it in moderation.
Another option is to start experimenting with healthier alternatives for example good old water with lemon, watermelon or your favorite fruit. Try something that still has the refreshing carbonation you love but no added sweeteners such as, seltzer water and your favorite fruit.
