2. ‘Soft’ drinks as you know them

Consumer Voice - - Feature -

Ac­cord­ing to a re­cent study that was pub­lished in The Amer­i­can Jour­nal of Clin­i­cal Nu­tri­tion, peo­ple who con­sumed more than one soda per day had a higher risk of stroke than peo­ple who did not drink so­das.

Loaded with sugar, so­das are an empty source of calo­ries that cause weight gain and con­trib­ute to the epi­demic of obe­sity. Drink­ing large amounts of this rapidly di­gested sugar causes your blood sugar to spike, which can lead to both in­flam­ma­tion and in­sulin re­sis­tance. Soda is of­ten the root cause of gas­tro-oe­sophageal re­flux dis­ease, which is when the contents of the stom­ach leak into the oe­soph­a­gus, caus­ing not only pain but also an ac­tual burn­ing of the oe­soph­a­gus from stom­ach acid.
