Effects of Soda on our Health

Sodas are packed with sugar, chemicals such as phosphoric acid and they have zero nutrition value. Instead of soda and other aerated drinks, we should opt for water or fresh fruit juice (not the packaged ones).

Sodas play havoc on our system!!

Teeth Decay

Tooth decay is one of the major effects of carbonated drinks on the body. Soda contains added ingredients that are acidogenic and carcinogenic and thus causes corrosion of enamel from teeth.

Risk of Diabetes

Due to high sugar content, it increases the risk of diabetes. For instance, if one consumes about a can of soda daily, the person can add an extra 15 pounds per year just from soda calories. Increased level of sugar consumption leads to an increased chance of becoming diabetic.

Sleep Disorders

Caffeine in the form of coffee is fine, but when it is mixed with carbonated drinks along with artificial sweeteners it becomes a deadly weapon and drinking sodas can affect our nervous system and alter mood and behaviour.

Bone Health

Due to the presence of phosphoric acid in aerated drinks, soda consumption can interfere with the body’s ability to absorb calcium and lead to conditions such as osteoporosis, cavities and bone softening.

Causes Fatty Liver

Liver damage is usually linked with consuming alcohol but one of the harmful effects of soft drinks also includes fattening of the liver.


High sugar, sodium and caffeine content in soda contribute to dehydration.


Sodas don’t give you any nutrients required for digestion. It has phosphoric acid that interacts with our stomach acid making digestion slow and blocking nutrient absorption.
