There are no positive effects to drinking soda expect that it might taste good. You're not getting any value in terms of vitamins or minerals, or even good quality carbohydrates.

  1. Soda contains phosphoric acid, which interferes with the body’s ability to absorb calcium and can lead to osteoporosis, cavities, and bone softening. Phosphoric acid also interacts with stomach acid, slowing digestion and blocking nutrient absorption.

  2. A single can of soda contains very high amount of sugar. This amount of sugar is not good as it causes an insulin reaction in the body. 

  3. Sodas leads to a higher production of free radicals, which have been linked to tissue damage, the development of diabetes, and diabetic complications.

  4. Drinking soda regularly can lead to tooth decay, cavities and gum disease.

  5. Some people are so used to have soda daily that they don't even realize the need to drink water and that leads to chronic dehydration.
