In your podcast on Calcium, you mention that sodas are particularly nasty for depleting stores of calcium, because it is so acidic. You didn't say which kinds of sodas. Do you mean the full spectrum of all carbonated beverages: colas, diet colas, seltzers, flavored sparking water, champagne? I do not drink much soda - perhaps one soda a week.

However, recently I have become enamored of these 'sparking water beverages' that are basically flavored seltzer. They claim low sodium, no calories, no caffeine. Ingredients include: carbonated water, citric acid, natural flaor, malic acid, potassium citrate, potassium benzoate, sucralose, acesulfame potassium, neotame.

By reading the ingredients, I gather: a) it is acidic (so probably does cause the issue you were discussing) and it has sucralose, which I know is to be avoided also.

Your thoughts, comments?
Thanks, Seth

PS I enjoy your podcast - keep them up!
