Do you like coke, seven up or sprite? These are what we call soda or carbonate drinks. But do you know scary news about coke recently? In shanghai a young boy drink 1.25L coke voraciously after sporting, which made him paralytic. It sounds inconceivable. But it is a real story. Although we may not drink so much coke at one time, soda is indeed super dangerous to our body no matter how much soda we consume. So my topic today is that we should stop drinking soda.

Obesity is the most obvious effect. Because soda contains too much sugar, for instance, there are 40.5 grams of sugar in a can of Coke, which is the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar. Imagine eating 10 large, full spoonfuls of sugar; this will give you an idea of how much sugar you ingest with each can of soda. Apart from this, according to the study from UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, obesity can lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness, amputation,and bone depletion. Which is just a few! So, drinking soda will cause many diseases on our bodies. Secondly, soda will cause not only diseases, but also one of the biggest sources of pollution in the world. Glass bottles, even if reused, take a lot more fuel to transport. Aluminum cans are only partially recycled, and the mining of aluminum has horrific environmental consequences. And plastic bottled soda requires 17 million barrels of oil a year. Thirdly, it is not impossible for us to stop drinking soda. I’m sure you have realized the danger of soda, but you may wonder whether you can stop drinking soda or not since you have been addicted to it. Fortunately, there is one way contains just 2 steps to do it. Step one is slowly stopping drinking
