Wherever you look there seem to be reminders of how much soft drinks have permeated our lives. There are Coke and Pepsi adverts screaming at us at every nook and corner. How serious are soft drink consumptions? Soft drinks are nothing but junk calories.

Fructose and sugar in soft drinks make up more than 21% of the daily intake of calories in many people’s diet. These beverages are an alarming cause of obesity. One may compensate by drinking ‘diet’ soft drinks but sweeteners like Aspartame and Saccharin too need more testing. So, how does one try to give up on the soft drinks?
