Hello, my name is VF and I am a soft-drinkaholic. I am trying to quit, but it is very, very difficult. Cola drinks and other forms of carbonated beverages are a constant part of our lives. Certainly a constant part of mine for as long as I remember me.
Looking through a window inside the Coca Cola Museum in Atlanta, you see little else but the ubiquitous logo. But did you know...
"The United States ranks first among countries in soft drink consumption. The per-capita consumption of soft drinks is in excess of 150 quarts per year, or about three quarts per week." (and)
"Watch out for cola soft drinks, which are very high in bone-dissolving phosphorus." (and)
"Soft drinks also contain large quantities of phosphorus, which when excreted pulls calcium out of the bones. Heavy users of soft drinks will have osteoporosis along with their damaged arteries."
Brrrrrr... enough to give you chills when you think about how totally well-marketed these not totally healthy beverages have become in our society.
