should we take pepsi for our regular use ? i often saw my frens in the college or in the market place, they use mostly pepsi or coke for their thirst...but we all know pepsi n coke ..these beverages are made up fo different types of chemical, i think pepsi n coke is never gud for our health..

hi saurav... of course not. pepsi and coke is fun to drink and gives you caffeine. drinks that are good for you are water and fruit or vegetable juices. and even those you have to look at the labels to make sure there isn't any high fructose corn syrup. soda pop is not about health. hehe

i think we people make it more advance in our life...n u know that our body never suits these things regularly .if u take pepsi, coke n all drinks like sprite..in a regular then it will cost u sometime..but if we take these things in gap..then it ill be better for us. for our health..n we all know one phrase 'health is wealth " so i must say ..try to avoid ..right.....

i don't think i've heard that expression before, "health is wealth" but that is very true. whenever i've been sick and couldn't do the things i needed to do or wanted to do. it was then that i truly appreciated getting better.

Drinking a Coke or Pepsi every once in a while won't harm your health. Drinking them every day is not good for you. They are just sugar and chemicals and caffeine. They have no nutritional value.

It's perfectly safe to drink, though it shouldn't be the only thing you drink; you do need other nutrients and minerals to survive and most people don't get them all from the food they eat. Pepsi, Coke, and other drinks like them are actually mostly water; all they add is Co2 gas to make it fizzy, and some flavoring. I have been drinking them most of my life, I am perfectly healthy and so is everyone else I know who drinks them a lot. Like I said, it's based on water and Co2, water is very healthy for you and Co2 is harmless in such small amounts as you find in these drinks. So I'm going to have to disagree with you, I believe these drinks to be fine unless they are the only thing anyone ever drinks.

They say that you can clean a dirty penny with coca-cola, so I don't think that that is very healthy. I don't think the same applies for pepsi, but then again there is a taste difference between the two, at least between a warm coke and a cold pepsi. I think that soda's have things in them that make them suitable for moderation, as the first responder has said.
