To Drink or Not to Drink ... Soft Drinks, That Is!
Soft drinks are the beverage of choice for many American families. It is not uncommon to see kids drinking cokes and other diet and non-diet soft drinks.

Remember your body is about 75% water and you need to replace the water your body loses through daily living. Ideally, you should drink half your body weight in ounces of water every day. So, if you weigh 128 pounds, you should drink 64 ounces of water daily.
