Does Soft Drink Consumption Fracture Bones?

A study in the Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine (June 2000) shows drinking too many soft drinks during the adolescence years could interfere with crucial bone development, which could lead to osteoporosis later in life.

According to the study, teenage girls who drink any kind of carbonated beverage are three times more likely to develop bone fractures, than girls who do not drink carbonated beverages.
