It’s no secret that a daily soda habit can lead to a mile-long list of unhealthy side effects, like weight gain, tooth decay and depression (to name a few). Even low or calorie free soda is cautioned against, with research indicating soda cans to contain BPA, a nasty chemical harmful to human and linked to infertility. So all things considered, it may be time to take notice of the astounding amount of research against the bubbly bandits. However, generations of thirst quenching makes it almost impossible to kick these cool, crisp chillers cold turkey.
