# 1: Soda
The main danger in soda is sugar, usually in the form of high fructose corn syrup. Fructose is the most challenging form of sugar for your body to manage. With more than a portion of sugar for a full day in just one can, he sends his blood sugar levels up into the sky and yet does not make him feel full, which can lead to overeating later. The tails also contain caramel color, something that sounds innocent, but it is actually an artificial coloration that has the carcinogenic chemical 4-MEI as a by-product.
Replace with – Foamy water (mineral) with a splash of fruit juice is a good alternative.
