I had a friend who used to work in a restaurant as a manager. I was drinking 7up and he told me its very bad. I didn't know it was toxic until then. Apparently, according to him it's poison the super-heavy amounts of sugar were destroying my pancreas easily.
So, Me and my best friend put those soft drinks to test OK. Put one big nail in a glass of coke, leave it there for two days. Put it away, go do stuff. Come back and you will find it totally rusted out. It's really been tried no joke.
From what I learned in that restaurant 7up, pepsi and coke cost nothing to the business. Not even 1 cents a glass, but, they make the most profit out of it because its so addictive and once you drink some you want some more. It's really important to follow a strict diet with natural sugars. If you want to grow taller OK and not suffer from diabetes at age 30.
Actually my friend was so worried about my health, he didn't want me to drink another glass of that junk. Sometimes, it really tempting especially if your a big coffee lover.
