I think colas and sodas should have a warning label, what do you think? Most important in our society we need education on preventative health teaching especially on nutrition. I heard colas and soda can cause loss of bone mass and can lead to osteoporosis. Many people know that too much caffeine isn't good for you but what about sodas? When I found out that even drinking 2 diet colas a day can cause dehydration and disc problems and really how much is safe?
Even now everyone is trying to eliminate Hydrogented foods because of the risks of high cholesterol especially triglycerides. So many fast food restaurants are changing to non-hydrogenated oils. Also they have to show what type of oil did the product use in making their product and now they're (health organization) are teaching the public about these oils and eliminating them altogether.
I think there needs to be more teaching and more regulations in the use of colas and sodas and how they affect you. I used to drink only 2 cans of colas a day and a coffee and juice but rarely any water. But now I drink water at least a liter or more than a quart a day when I found out I have Degenerative disc disease and osteopenia leading to osteoporosis. Sodas aren't healthy for your tooth enamel either.
