Soft drink could be hard on heart


FIZZY drinks may be linked to a higher risk of heart attacks, researcher­s claim.

Scientists looked at the drinking habits of 800,000 patients resuscitat­ed after having a cardiac arrest out of hospital.

They asked what they had spent on beverages, and found a link with carbonated soft drinks – but not others such as green tea, black tea, coffee, cocoa, fruit or vegetable juice or mineral water.
