Soft drinks have long been suspected of leading to lower calcium levels
and higher phosphate levels in the blood. When phosphate levels are high and
calcium levels are low, calcium is pulled out of the bones. The phosphate
content of soft drinks like Coca -Cola and Pepsi is very high, and they
contain virtually no calcium
Since Cola contains phosphoric acid, the acid will react with calcium (bones) and form a salt. Negative effect
