Drinking more than two glasses of soda a day, activates receptors for sweet and thus increases the desire for sugar. It is established that the bubbles in carbonated beverages enhance the taste in food, because many prefer to drink something sweet.
They are associated with the occurrence of cancer
Studies have shown that women who consume more than three sodas during the week have an increased risk of breast cancer. Although there is a clear connection between these two phenomena, further research is needed to prove this process.
Can damage bones
Drinking large amounts of soda can adversely affect bone. Scientists assume that it is responsible for the large amount of phosphoric acid that contain these drinks. Thus, to re-establish the balance between calcium and phosphorus in the body, it comes to the release of this mineral from bones thereby reducing their density.
It attacks the teeth
Sugar from soft drinks reacts with the bacteria found in dental plaque, leading to the formation of harmful acids that further affect the collapse of teeth.
