Sweet thing

Good Health (Australia) - - Be Informed -

Think­ing of start­ing a fam­ily? A new study in the jour­nal Epi­demi­ol­ogy says it may be worth cut­ting back on sug­ar­sweet­ened bev­er­ages like soft drinks or en­ergy drinks. The study fol­lowed al­most 4000 women liv­ing in North Amer­ica and just over 1000 of their male part­ners. For women, drink­ing sugar-sweet­ened bev­er­ages was as­so­ci­ated with a 25 per cent lower fe­cund­abil­ity – the av­er­age prob­a­bil­ity that you’ll get preg­nant in a monthly cy­cle. For men, the drop was even lower – down 33 per cent.
