Carbonated Cola Drinks Drop Bone Density in Women

I could not let this one pass. This is very depressing to those of us who love diet colas like Coke, Pepsi and Dr. Pepper. But the evidence seems incontrovertible–drinking these frequently (5 or more a week) will actually leach calcium out of your bones. And one tiny older woman I know had already been told by her doctor not long ago to cut out colas and start taking calcium when her bone density test came back unfavorable.

It’s going to take a lot of retraining for many of us. And I wonder what the effect might be on sales of these products over the long haul. Be very interesting. I’ll watch for information on that and let you know. Get the rest here.
