The “Healthy” Drink RUINING Your Heart (Shocking!)
Everything you put in your mouth is either going to promote good health—or increase your risk of disease.
You don’t have to be perfect, but you want the balance to favor good health.
There’s a particular drink that’s been touted as a healthy choice for decades… but recent research has shown that it’s anything but.
In fact, a recent study just found that people who drink the most have a higher risk of heart disease.
Folks, if you don’t read any further today, read this:
Industry manufacturers would have you believe they’re a healthier alternative to sugar-sweetened beverages like sodas, fruit juices, and sports drinks.
But they’re every bit as bad as the drinks they were supposed to replace.
Despite having “diet” in their name, they do NOT help you lose weight.
They’ve also been connected to a slew of health problems—including increasing the risk of stroke and dementia.
Now a recent study shows that they’re bad for your heart as well.
Researchers followed 105,000 people for 10 years, and people filled out questionnaires about their sugary and diet beverage habits.
People who drank just 6 ounces per day had up to a 32 percent increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
That’s just HALF of a can of soda!
This could be a major reason why past studies have shown that drinking four or more diet beverages a day also increases your risk of premature death.
Like I said, they’re just as bad as the drinks they’re supposed to replace.
In general, sugar drinks have been tied to an increased risk of weight gain, obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, gout… the list goes on.
And as with diet drinks, the more sugar-sweetened beverages you consume, the higher your risk of premature death.
Here are marketing buzzwords to watch out for:
- Zero sugar
- Low sugar
These words mean that a product will be loaded with an artificial sweetener like aspartame or sucralose.
If you’re thirsty, drink water.
And if you want a bit more flavor—and want to help reduce your risk of chronic disease—opt for drinks like green tea, coffee, or wine.
