Yes, very: The high sugar in sodas risks weight gain, Insulin resistance, and ultimately type 2 diabetes. So-called "diet" drinks aren't safe either -- there are associations between drinking them and risk of strokes. Having been through this myself, i can tell you it's very do-able to shift from colas to plain water, teas, and sparkling waters free of chemical poisons. It's hard at first, yet worth it! ...Read more

Don't: Please forgive my frankness. Criticism erodes love. You've found love, but I would not tolerate someone nagging me about food choices. After 30 years, I've concluded that the scares about aspartame, etc. that you'll read online are bogus -- in fact, I'd suggest you ask your local junior college chemistry prof. Diet soda is far healthier than other bellywash and even high-calorie fruit juice. ...Read more
