  • I don't have any, but think about what it does to an adult body compared to a baby's body. You can try googling it and see what comes up. I wish I would have saved the articles that I had.

  • You don't need an article to tell you that soda is LOADED with sugar. Diet sodas are LOADED with artificial sweeteners that are also bad for you in their own way. It's a no win situation.

  • sugar is fattening. sugar rots teeth. caffiene is addictive. carbonation will surely give her belly aches. um.. early childhood diabetes?

    no need for an article, it's mostly common sense.

    and diet soda has aspartame which is poisonous.
