Soda may be linked to reduced fertility. The more soda a woman drank, the lower her chances of conceiving a child, according to one study.
Women who drank three sodas daily were half as likely to get pregnant as women who avoided soda, according to American and Danish researchers.
And caffeine from soda and other beverages may be linked to birth defects such as Spina Bifida, according to the National Birth Defects Prevention Study. More research is needed.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
What Every Woman Should Know About Fertility and Her Biological Clock
-- Until now, there has been little practical advice on what women can do about ticking biological clocks.
What Every Woman Should Know About Her Biological Clock is the first book to explore a woman's reproductive life span completely, from beginning to end.
Based on Cara Birrittieri's own experience of running up against a slowing biological clock, she shows women for the first time how to "tell what time it is" with a simple blood test that gives them a peek at the state of their ovaries.
What Every Woman Should Know About Her Biological Clock will:
• Show women how ovarian reserve tests can monitor the biological clock.
• Give women an evolutionary explanation for such an unforgiving clock.
• Offer a method to calculate the duration of the biological clock.
• Explain how birth control pills may enhance fertility.
• Provide a way to manipulate the monthly cycle using birth control pills.
• Present steps to preserve and prolong fertility.
• Provide a critical look at midlife celebrity birth announcements in the media.
