Hello Everyone,

I am fairly new to the group and have been enjoying the following
discussions currently underway.
I had a thought though about the sodas and how several seem to be
interested in the coupons available to get these drinks on sale.
During a recent study with my ex husband having kidney stones I found
out that these soft drinks are very hard on the body.

One 12 ounce soda does many things to the body many of us would not
think about.
1st - the caffiene dehydrates the body
2nd - the acidity itself takes calcium away from the bones in the body
3rd - it takes 3 times as much water to nuetralize the acid in the
soda so that it stops harming the body.
4th - sugar isn't really that good for you - I think there is 4 times
as much sugar in soda as there is in koolaid.
5th - if it has an artificial sweetener that is even worse. certain
sweeteners when processed by the body form poisons/toxins.

I won't say that we do not buy soda because my family LOVES rootbeer.
However, quantities are definitely limited a great deal due to the

fact that my three olders boys will be susceptible to kidney stones.

Thanks for listening ---
