    So my opinion (I'm a med student) is that water is better then soda any day. The real problem with Coke is actually the sugar (and for you diet drinkers nutrasweet isn't exactly good for you). There are some interesting studies done on weight loss in people who stop drinking soda.

    As for the water, too much can't hurt. Do we really need 8 8-ounce glasses? Maybe not, but keep in mind an 8 ounce glass isn't actually that much. The other cool thing I recently learned involves water when you have a cold. So as it turns out, increasing your water intake when you have a cold can have the same effect, if not better then the effects of taking a medicine like mucinex to help with congestion. The water actually makes your mucous thinner and easier to clear out, so some of your symptoms will get better. I don't really see the point in trying to disprove the original post, because even though these "facts" may not be entirely accurate, the fact remains water is so much better for you.

    I like Coke and I love Dr Pepper...

    But I should cut back on the sodas....

    From now on I'll only use Coke to marinate my T-bones in the toilet!

    hmm, i stopped drinking coke (and most all other sodas except the occasional cream soda) about last year right after spring break. no reason at all. And the first time I drank some after a very long time without it, it tasted nasty. The caffeine though really affects me too now, no longer resistant to it as I dont have a coke a day like I used to.
    Though i do have at least a glass of green tea a day. yeah best drink ever. I marvel at how thirst quenching it is. And an apple too. I love apples.

    lol. Yes.

    On a Coke note, I dont buy it for my kids. Why? Its like drinking candy. They can have it at restraunts (just as my parents did with me) but its not a 'home' drink.

    That's called caffeine withdrawl. You need to either stop completely and bare the headaches until they go away (cold turkey) or ween yourself off of caffeine. I know, I used to drink soda and the caffeine withdrawl headaches were the worst!!

    Can't beat water. Soda is good once in a while, but if you let your body get used to the caffeine intake, it will let you know it wants "the good stuff" in the form of headaches, fatigue and other symptoms if you keep caffeine away from it for too long. Is it me or does that sound like a drug?
    I like flat dr.pepper.

    I hate it when it's still carbonated though.


    kind of ironic.


    On that second part i'm glad i'm immune to caffeine.

    I drink TONS of water. I force myself to drink anywhere from half a gallon to a gallon of water a day, all spread out of course. If I were to wear a hoodie the whole day, I would lose probably 5 or more pounds from water weight.

    One of the reasons why I drink a lot of water is because of the salty high-sodium food I (and many other locals) often eat. I try to keep the water and sodium content in my body at the same ratio, so if I drink a lot of water I have to match it with some high sodium foods.

    And the Coke myths were tested on Mythbusters.
