And it wouldn't affect me since I never drink the stuff.
I really wonder if a lot of the chronic health problems so very many people have might not be connected to soda, whether the full sugar ones or -- in my opinion much worse -- diet ones.
What's really scary is that very little kids drink soda and lots of it.
Some years ago, like about twenty years ago now, when I realized that my younger son, then about 8, was drinking nothing but soda, I went cold turkey and stopped buying the stuff. At the time I had maybe five in a week, but I started doing without entirely. Now, if I have a soft drink once a month it's a lot. Now that he's grown and on his own, I'm sure my son drinks soda, but probably not as constantly as do so many people.
