Soda: It Doesn’t Matter if it’s Diet

A recent study has concluded that those who drink more than one soda a day have a 50% higher chance of developing a heart disease than those who drink one or less a day. The study also added that it doesn’t matter if the soda is diet or not.

The heart disease most commonly linked to soda is metabolic syndrome, a condition that is linked to several other health conditions.

According to CNN, “The study, in the American Heart Association journal Circulation, looked at more than 6,000 healthy people, who showed no signs of metabolic syndrome, and then followed up. After four years, 53 percent of people who drank an average of one or more soft drinks per day developed metabolic syndrome. Those who drank one or more diet soft drinks a day were at a 44 percent higher risk.”

    The AMA also release a study that a person who drank an average of one soda a day above their average caloric intake, would gain an average of 10.3 pounds a year. So soda can cause you to gain a pound a month.
