Soft drink is the most consumable drinks worldwide although of their serious impact on human health, it affects many body systems such as locomotor system, gastrointestinal system, circulatory, central nervous and even reproductive system, simply it affects all the body structures. Diabetes, heart diseases, bones and teeth disorders are frequently induced due to excessive consumption of soft drinks particularly among children and aged persons.
Diseases mentioned above induce a negative impact on the overall economy of countries chiefly least developing countries which require import medications from other countries so they expense much of hard currency on things, that may be avoidable by applying their local resources and introduce natural fruits as juices to their local citizen in a civilized way. Extensive and attractive advertisements of soft drinks companies and inadequate awareness toward its hazardous effects on community health and the national economy encourage more investors to invest their money in soft drinks factories, so the snow ball is being larger than before and hits more and more people and that will draw a black picture to the health status of those people whom stay under the rains of soft drinks.
Renal and heart diseases and dental problems represent a real health problem facing more than 70% of Sudanese people at differ ent age groups and due to complexity of that diseases which require well established hospitals with well-equipped laboratories and modern radiological diagnostic method s which is usually not in all districts of the country and due to the low income of most citizen which prevent them to attain the best diagnostic and therapeutic methods.
