Drinking lots of sodas increases your risk of heart attack.
Why we should not abuse soft drinks.
Sugary beverages have been associated with weight gain and type 2 diabetes. Now the results of this research suggest that beverages sweetened with sugar may further increase the risk of coronary heart disease than that associated with traditional risk factors.
The relationship between the consumption of soft drinks with sugar and sweeteners (light drinks) of more than 43,000 men with the existence of coronary problems was analyzed. There were 3683 cases of coronary heart disease over 22 years of follow-up.
According to the results of the study, people who consume an average of 6.5 sugary drinks per week are 20% more likely to suffer a heart attack than those who did not consume this type of drink.
Consumption of artificially sweetened beverages was not significantly associated with coronary heart disease.
