A key ingredient in soda is caffeine. Caffeine is a stimulant, which many of us love because it keeps us awake during those 2-hour staff meetings.

It can also make you forgetful.
Sleep isn’t the only effect soda has on the brain, it can also make you forgetful. Researchers at UCLA found long-term sugar consumption could lead to impaired memory, learning, and behavioral plasticity.

If you want a better memory (and who doesn’t?), it might be time to kiss the soda goodbye.
