For a few years now I have drastically minimized and almost 100% reduced my Soda intake to 0 (It's a couple sips once a month). I am now on a 90% Plant-Based diet where I try to eat as healthy as possible and only when it is just not possible to eat well, I eat the healthiest option. I also allow myself to cheat once a week on whatever I want, but I don't always want to (having the option really helps though). Nobody's perfect but I would say I am 100% aware of all the bad sugars I decide to eat, and its not many. I lost 10 lbs in a few months and I look better than I ever did in college.

I agree with your concept about the sugray drinks. The sugars can cause considerable damage to our bodies as well as access fats and uric acid. After some digging I found that there has been research showing that the diet and the things we are putting into our bodies has is the root cause of Multiple Sclerosis. People's MS has been reversed through nutrition, physical exercise program and similar natural things. So not only does it affect Blood Pressure but it can have a much more encompassing affect on our complete bodily health. Just thought it was interesting
