Soda can really cause the symptoms to become much worse. In fact, soda is the number one worst thing you can consume to cause arthritic flare ups. Did you know it takes 27 glasses of water to off set the effects of one soda? Think diet is better? Well it's actually worse, it takes 32 glasses of water cancel out a diet drink.
