I read "fooducate" quite often and I found This article: 9 reasons to quit soft drinks and realized that it's been a while for me since I've actually enjoyed a "Soda" (or pop or coke or w/e you want to call it!).
1. Obesity. 2. Tooth decay. 3. Money. 4. Taste. 5. Refined Sugars. 6. Artificial sweeteners. 7. Artificial Colors. 8. Ecology.
My reason for quitting didn't include any of these. I just became disgusted with the thought of the mixture of ingredients overall, and the lack of sweetener studies.
Could you quit the stuff? Do you have Soda limitations/exceptions?
