Some people never drink water. They only drink soft drinks.Is there any advantage in drinking water?
yes a lot of less sugar in your system! soft drinks are loaded with sugar and fake sugar!
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.
More healthy, not dehydrated, more energy, eating less, etc.
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.
Drinking water plays a crucial role in good health. Most people don't know or think about the amazing benefits water brings to our bodies, but here they are, along with tips for getting your quota. read more

If carbonated soft drinks are really bad for the health, then why governments don’t ban them?The print and electronic media is full of reports, studies which highlight that how soft drinks can influence a person’s health. So why not stop their production? Isn't prevention better than cure?

High fructose corn syrup doesn't taste nearly as good as sugar, and the consensus among nutritionists is that it is also much worse for us. Considering these facts, why are virtually all soft drinks (except the diet ones) sweetened with high fructose corn syrup, rather than sugar?I've heard people...
