Like You Needed Another Reason to Stop Soda

A study in the September issue of American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined the association of soda, including specific types of soda, and risk of hip fracture in postmenopausal women over a 30 year period.

Each additional serving of total soda per day was associated with a 14% increased risk of hip fracture. Risk was significantly elevated in consumers of both regular soda AND diet soda and also did not significantly differ between colas and noncolas or sodas with or without caffeine.

Aside from the chemicals, sugars, and noncaloric artificial sweeteners, the the large amounts of phosphorous in soda is awful for your bones.
