In brief: Maybe, maybe not

Sodas with sugar are ok if occasional (excess sugar is bad).
Sodas worsen one's calcium & vitamin d status, so drinking excess soda but little nonfat milk can lead to weaker bones. Soda is acidic like vinegar or citrus fruits. Acidity is bad if one has stomach acid problems. Our body neutralizes acidity so our blood is not acidic (our metabolism & enzymes work normally despite our drinking sodas).

In brief: Absolutely

Ph of soda is 2 this means it has 100, 000 times the hydrogen ions of water. These shut down every enzyme system in your body.
This means you can't burn fat, can't get sugar or cholesterol out of the bloodstream into the cells so diabetes and high cholesterol and shuts down your immune system. So it really is only a question of when you will have trouble. www.medac4u.com.
