Questions and Answers

What is the amount of soda you can drink in a day before serious damage?


One a day will not hurt your voice. Drinking soda won't cause your singing voice to fail, though moderation should be observed. Soda is one of the causes of sore throat, especially if it is ice cold (which everyone prefers to drink). It is even better to limit your consumption to once a week or less. If you can eliminate it completely from your diet, then do so. Taking care of your body is also taking care of your voice. You only need to maintain a healthy diet and of course apply proper singing technique to maintain and improve your singing voice. Moderation is the key to everything, as many experts say.
