Anything which exceeds its limits is not good for health.Researchers says that having a cup of tea is more healthier than water. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/5281046.stm i like fresh juice only.But now a days i find more people addicted to soft drinks they think its a fashion in globalization.usually this soft drink contains benzoates,soda pop,it affects our health by weakening the bones, obesity.. i can survive without soft drinks(like you).

Of course one can survive without a soft drink. Come to think of it, our great grand parents did not have these soft drinks, but they survived. Their fathers/ mothers did not have these soft drinks. They also survived. So, it is proved that one could survive without soft drinks. Pesticides and other unwanted chemicals have been found in many a samples of the soft drinks. It is not advisable to consume too much of them.

yes, that's what im thinking too. if early people can survive without it then maybe we can survive without it too. softdrinks are not good to our health and we should drink more ater than softdrinks. :)

I don't like the taste of softdrinks so I definitely can survive without. I drink tea, water, and crystal light in different flavors.
