Cornell Vet. 1980 Jan;70(1):3-9.

Calcium, cola, calamity.


It appears that, in spite of many critics, the intake of soft drinks will continue to increase and that of milk will continue to decrease. The soft drinks contain no nutrients other than sugar, whereas milk contains many nutrients. Thus, the substitution of soft drinks for milk results in great decreases of minerals, protein, and vitamins but calcium is a nutrient of particular concern because milk is the major source of calcium. Therefore, the trend towards substituting soft drinks for milk should be reversed in order to ensure adequate intake of calcium and better nutrition.
