    Your body need water....it does not need soft drinks. Water is essential to good health. Drink lots of water every day and you will feel, and see, the benefits almost immediately. There are no health benefits to soft drinks and the sugar they contain can be very detrimental to your health especially over time. If you want to enjoy a soft drink do so ,as an occasional treat, but they can never be a substitute for water.

    I'm not a doctor, but I have been blessed with a large primate brain, so I'll take a stab at it. The human body evolved over the course of millions of years drinking water and eating raw foods. Only in the very recent past (on the grand scale) have we been exposed to drinks other than water. Your body has no idea what to do with that crap except try to get rid of it. Our brains crave salt, fat, and sugar because those things were very hard to come by on the savanah. Now they are available everywhere 24-hours per day. We have not yet developed a mechanism that tells us to stop drinking that crap. Of course, the alternative is to drink tap water laced with Lithium, uranium, and fluoride...so I guess it really doesn't matter unless you have a natural spring in your backyard.

    Long-term drinking of pop/soft drinks/Coke/Pepsi can do untold damage to your health. Phosphoric acid can cause erosion of teeth and bones (cavities and osteoporosis). Other ingredients include carcinogens derived when you digest the artificial sweetener and neurotoxin, aspartame, and the preservative potassium benzoate. High Fructose Corn Syrup messes with your insulin and can cause you to gain weight exponentially.
    I firmly believe that the rash of juvenile diabetes we're seeing is a direct result of all those 8 oz cups of Coke that kids guzzle down with their "Happy Meals".

    So, yes, of course there is an advantage to drinking water, preferably filtered.
