Kicking the Soda Habit

March 26, 2021
Dr. Dimitrios Vareldzis

Soda is made with all sorts of habit-forming ingredients: caffeine, sugar or artificial sweeteners, sodium and carbonation. It can lead to unwanted weight gain, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, dental concerns (discoloration, worn enamel, weakened teeth and cavities leading to tooth loss), weakened bones and osteoporosis, heart disease, disruption of healthy sleep patterns, and depression. Some ways to prevent this addiction is to:

  1. Not use soda as a reward,
  2. Not use it as a crutch emotionally or physically,
  3. Drink plenty of water, and
  4. Avoid drinking it every day.
