    There are a number of health issues associated with soft drinks, and although high sugar content is a significant one, it’s by no means the only one. A major issue associated with heavy soft drink consumption comes not from what’s in soda but what’s not in it: calcium, for instance. Kids who grow up drinking a lot of soft drinks instead of milk or other beverages are at higher risk for calcium deficiency conditions later in life such as osteoporosis. Neurotransmitter dysfunction–essentially, brain-wave abnormalities–have been blamed on the artificial sweeteners in some soft drinks, ironically those marketed as a “diet” alternative to traditional high-sugar soft drinks. Finally, caffiene consumption in many soft drinks can cause neurological and adrenal disorders.

    The carbonation in it is not good for you.  Drinking too much carbonated drinks can have effects on peoples throats and intestines and stuff.  Hence the burping.  (but moderation is key)

    Carbonation and phosphoric acid in soda can also cause the calcium that is already in your bones to be leached out.
