Host: What kinds of beverages should a singer avoid? Jennifer Rutherford: Remember that things like caffeine are drying for the vocal chords, and sodas and very acidy juices also are damaging because you can get acid reflux from that. It's basically filling your stomach with an acidic fluid and then when you cough or bring air up, it aspirates on your vocal chords and it’s very damaging to them. In fact, you can get nodes on your vocal chords if that happens enough and it’s a common cause of hoarseness. People will often think they have Laryngitis when in fact they should just cut down on how much coffee they’re drinking.
