What soft drinks are doing to your body

This article linked below reminded me of why it makes me so sad when I see parents giving soda to their children. Why not hand your child an increased likelihood of tooth decay, nutritional depletion, type-2 diabetes, and heart disease? Unless of course you're giving your child diet soda, in which case you're giving them an artificial sweetener that is carcinogenic and which studies have found produced cancer in rats. And lets not forget that carbonated beverages contain phosphoric acid, which can severely deplete the blood calcium levels. I mean it's not like your children need calcium, right?

At least adults drink this at their own risk. If I had my way, you would have to be 18 to drink soda.
