Health Desk--- Nov 05, 2017: A new study suggests drinking more than two cans of sodas a week increases the risk of type 2 diabetes while just one can raise blood pressure.
The study also suggests drinking just one 12-ounce can of soda can raise blood pressure as it contains 14 more grams of sugar than the daily recommended serving.
And while high-levels of sugary beverages are long-known to cause obesity and lead to chronic illness, soda consumption is steadily rising among all age groups worldwide.
Now, researchers have found more evidence that just a small amount of soda weekly leads to the risk of metabolic syndrome - a cluster of conditions that raise the chances of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
The findings published in the Journal of the Endocrine Society reveal the risk factors of soda including weight gain, high levels of fats in the blood known as triglycerides, elevated blood pressure, high blood sugar and reduced 'good' cholesterol levels.
