Is drinking soda really all that bad?

Do you know how bad soda really is for you? Soda can cause many health problems like Diabetes, Heart Disease and some others. Soda can have 38-45 grams of sugar which is more than than you should eat in a whole day! So try to stay away from soda to avoid health problems. Some people do not realize that fruit juice also contains a lot of sugar. Both soda and 100% fruit juice pack around 110 calories and 20–26 grams of sugar per cup (240 ml). 

Some alternatives are water, sparkling water and unsweetened tea.
