The Dangers of Drinking Soda

1398714_10151964881904378_396548395_oA timely article from NBC News Health talks about the dangers of drinking soda if you are a woman. Women who drink the most sweet soft drinks have an increased risk of cancer, a study claims.

One 20-ounce bottle of regular pop can have between 10 and 17 teaspoons of sugar and up to 290 calories. Over the course of a year, an average adult can consume the equivalent of 30 pounds of added weight by simply drinking one regular pop per day. This new study suggests that the risks of drinking soda go far beyond added weight.

“Women who drank the most sweet soft drinks had a 78 percent increased risk of the cancer, researchers found.”
