Coke and Pepsi are the most popular brands in history. These drinks are loved by almost everyone around the world. The word Coca-Cola is considered to be amongst the most recognized words because everyone around the corner knows what it is.

In majority of the countries, these drinks are more accessible than clean water.
Coca-Cola Company uses its propaganda to make everyone believe that it is environment friendly and do not have a bad effect on your health although the reality is that consumption of these soft drinks is directly linked to many diseases and water shortage.

The main side effect of drinking these beverages is the destruction of human metabolic system. They also cause lungs to damage leading to breathing disorders.
The harms of our all time favorite carbonized drinks also include Calcium loss in bones because the carbonation in the drinks effects the stomach and the stomach utilizes Calcium (antacid) from our blood to neutralize the carbonation effect. The blood as a result cannot stand Calcium insufficiency and takes up Calcium from bones to compensate this. This whole process results in weak bones formation.
