3. Lower Risk of Disease
The magic ingredient in soda that makes it taste so great is sugar. No real surprise there, but as more and more doctors and scientists are beginning to realize, too much sugar is very bad for your health. Too much sugar is known to contribute to your risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure and even gout. Don’t be fooled by diet sodas since the artificial sweeteners they contain are far from beneficial for your health.
