Why is soda terrible for me?

SodaBefore you drink your next bottle of soda, consider a number of reasons why you may reconsider drinking cola.

First, soda increases your risk of heart attack. One sugary beverage (such as soda) a day was associated with a 20-percent increase in a person’s risk of having a heart attack over a 22-year period.

It also has possible carcinogens (or in simple talk, cancer-causing ingredients).

You think diet soda is good? Researchers at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine found a link between older adults who drank diet soda on a daily basis and a 44 percent higher chance of heart attack and stroke.

Soda could also make you lose your mind, causing nerve disorders and memory loss.

It also builds fat deposits all over your body. This kind of fat is bad because it can lead to heart disease later.
