purchased your soda only at a vending machine, that’s about $550/ year.
If, instead, you put this into a retirement account for 30 years at a 7%
interest rate compounded annually, you’d have about $60,000. Even if
you buy your soda at the grocery store for 40 cents a can, that’s still
$243 per year and over $26,000 over 30 years.

Even if you drink diet, you may not be in the clear (see the study
published by the American Heart Association discussed below).
“Drinking as little as one can of soda a day — regular or diet — is
