Soda is a staple drink in many households. You can find it at almost every restaurant that you go to. There are many flavor varieties. However there is also a mountain of sugar in each bottle or aspartame if you choose to drink diet soda. Have you ever stopped to think about what you are putting into your body when you guzzle down that glass of cola?
The Youtube sensation Crazy Russian Hacker has posted a video that may make you think twice about what you are drinking with your meals.

He takes a pot, places it on the stove, and places some cola in the pot. He turns on the heat and little by little the water from the soda evaporates as the soda boils. What is left is a black, sticky, slimy mess. It looks like tar sitting in the bottom of the pot.
When you boil straight sugar water, it does the same thing. It turns into a syrupy caramel. If you compare the two there is really no difference other than the color. There is so much sugar in soda that it can turn into a caramel when you boil it. There are 65 grams of sugar in every 20 ounce bottle of Coca Cola and 69 grams of sugar in a bottle of Pepsi. The American Heart Association states that there are 180,000 deaths per year that could be linked to drinking soda and the sugars that are in them.
Now if you are thinking that you can just switch to diet soda and you will cut out all of the sugar, you are getting into sweeteners. These artificial sweeteners, specifically aspartame, are thought to cause cancer along with other diseases.
