    Loads, so much that Mt. Dew runs through my veins! Plus since I have no idea what benzene (Carcinogen) is I doubt it will deter me, ignorance is bliss I tell you!

    yeah i knew that a long time ago its to do with acesulfame k, and aspartame in the drinks but it doesnt really increase your chances of getting cancer much unless you drink like a truck full of the stuff do you have trucks of soda in your refridgerator

    Edit : for everyone who doesnt know a carcinogen is a cancer causing substance

    You might think I am lying, but I never had a soft drink in my life. I go for all natural homemade drinks like grape juice, orange juice, and such.

    Ah? Benzene you say? Due to its aromatic stability, it is very hard for our body to degrade benzene. However, our liver can convert it into an epoxide, thereby making it polar to be dissolved in our blood, and ultimately excrete through urine. So, same amounts of it is not very harmful, but smoking is a different story. Anyway! I thought I should bring to light why benzene is harmful. So, there goes my organic chemistry lesson!

    I used to drink a lot of soda, almost everyday. But then I developed diabetes, so I stopeed drinking soda. I only drink water and milk now. Although I brought my diabetes to a stable level so it won't harm me as much, I still choose not to drink soda. Be healthy people

    Yes, never. My sisters have them once in a while, and it is very tempting when I see them drink. Just want to know how it tastes like and all, but I am still soft drink-free. I think, those drinks are also one of the leading causes of obesity, so I say no for soft drinks. However, having a few once in a while is completely alright, I guess. All Natural is yummy and beneficial, and you don't have to worry about burping in public.
