Is Soda Bad for Bones?

 

Although a new study has found that drinking soda has no direct effect on healthy bones, researchers warn that there is still a hazard, because colas are replacing healthier drinks as the beverage of choice.

"Somebody who is drinking six cans of cola a day and getting no milk at all is going to be in trouble," lead researcher Robert Heaney said. "It is not because they are drinking the cola. It is because they are not drinking milk."

The study does, however, refute earlier findings that phosphoric acid found in sodas caused bones to decay. "It is what it doesn't contain, like calcium, and not what it does contain that is the problem," Heaney says.
