    Soda Drinkers!

    http://www.mercola.com/2003/jul/9/soda_dangers.htm
    I am, and have always been a health freak, and while I knew soda was bad for you I never knew why. For about two years going I havn't drank anything but vitamin water, water, and fruit juice.
    Alot of others my age think I am nuts but atleast I am healthy!

    I'm a bit of a health freak too. I'm going to show that article to my kids. They're not allowed soda except for the occasional can of Whole Earth organic drinks. They have sugar in but none of the other rubbish.

    Your welcome!
    Yes, I am a bit of an extremist with health. (In my opinion)
    I only use aluminum free deodorant, (Normal deodorant has aluminum in it and can cause breast cancer) I am not particularly picky about this one but I prefer to eat organic.

    Well like anything if you do to much of it, it will be bad for you. Even water done to excess can cause issues for people.

    I'm not really a soda drinker anymore. I only drink soda when I have to, such as right now when it's the only drink in the house besides milk. Occasionally I choose it.

    I gave up drinking fizzy drinks a year or so ago now, maybe two years. It is the single best thing other than going vegan that I ever did for my health!

    Re: Soda Drinkers!

    I drank some soda yesterday and it was the first time in a really long time. I was at someone else's house though so I kind of had to. And I was burping so much. It's almost like my body wasn't used to it, because I'm not one to burp from carbonated beverages. Pretty much all I drink now is green tea. I'm addicted to it!

    Re: Soda Drinkers!

    I`m the other side, I drink gallons of pop, as we call it in Chgo. At one point we would drink 5 to 6 cases a week, we are down to maybe 1 and a half, that is a big difference. My husband drinks green tea also. I`m working my way slowly. I was raised with both a Mom and Dad that were both big pop drinkers.

    That is good that you are slowly weaning yourself off of the 'pop'.
    Kudos!

    I only have soda when there's nothing else for me to have, or when I'm sick I have Sierra Mist. I had some soda the other day and wow it tasted so weird!

    Re: Soda Drinkers!

    I don't drink a lot of `soda` (we don't really call it soda over here. Fizzy drink? I dunno!) but I'll have it if I'm out shopping or in a cafe. I don't suppose it's that bad for you once in a while. That article said you shouldn't drink it because it has a lot of tap water in though? What's wrong with tap water? Better than spending loads collecting plastic bottles of water that isn't much better

    Re: Soda Drinkers!

    I think the tap water thing depends heavily on the area you live in (or the drink is produced in).

    Re: Soda Drinkers!

    We are big pop drinkers here. My husband only drinks pop, tea or coffee. I drink about 2-3 cans of pop a day. My kids are only to have a little bit of pop on special accassions, like a birthday party. I know that is a double standard, but hey.... I love my pop, I can't help it!

    Tap water contains lots of harmful chemicals and possibly hormones. I watched a documentary a few years back where they were saying that the drinking water was being affected by women who take the contraceptive pill. Some of our drinking water is recycled waste water. Some scientists believe that this is the reason for men having a lower sperm count and growing breasts. It sounds crazy I know but this is what I saw on that programme.

    I require fizzy, calorie-free beverages. Tasty, tasty chemical goodness, how I long for you. I drink those sugar free carbonated flavored waters all day.

    Everyone who has ever eaten carrots has died.

    Re: Soda Drinkers!

    I used to be a coffee addict and a diet coke addict. I can't believe I haven't had a cup of coffee or a diet coke since April! Not since I started with my coconut oil and healthier eating program. I miss it every once in a while, but for me, I think it's like alcohol and being an alcoholic. I can't have just one. It will open the floodgates again. I drink a lot of organic, whole juice, lots of filtered water, a lot of herbal tea with the occassional green teas. I'm a lot healthier now, by far.
