Undoubtedly, many people are crazy about soft drinks. By soft drinks I mean not just the bottled or the canned colas we normally call soft drinks but even iced tea and all other artificially colored, flavored, and carbonated soda drinks in the market. Some people believe they are going healthier when they take ice tea instead of cola. Well you are wrong folks. Iced tea is just as damaging and addicting. Have you noticed how it has been hooking you? Whether you admit or not…you are already addicted to iced tea just as others are addicted to the common cola or soda.

I've seen many who have been almost (or shall I say actually) addicted to soft drinks. Their meal will not be complete without a bottle of cola or a pitcher of iced tea. Soft drinks boost their appetite and make their meal more enjoyable. Well perhaps some are ignorant about the harmful effects of soft drinks but many I supposed are just unmindful. They are ignoring the truth because the bad side effects of this unhealthy habit have yet to be felt. While there are those who are not really aware of the bad effects, there are however many who know but do not really care. They are not bothered by the fact that soft drinks are nothing but plain and simple junks. They simply ignore the fact that soft drinks have very high phosphate content and yet zero in calcium. So what health benefits do we gain from drinking these? Nothing! Sadly though, many people kept drinking soft drinks despite having known that eventually this habit will lead to poor bone mineralization, hypertension, and kidney damage.
