Are Soft Drinks Bad For Health?
Is Coca-Cola bad for your health and body? The answer is somehow correct when we talk about soft drinks. Such drinks contain high sugar and acidity. Each gram of sugar contains 4 calories, but in addition, they supply energy only with little nutritional benefits.
People consider sugar drinks bad for health and a significant contributor to many health conditions that include obesity, type 2 diabetes, and tooth decay. Researchers have contributed that drinking a can of Coca-Cola has damaging effects within an hour as there are 37 grams of added sugar equal to almost 10 teaspoons in a single Coca-Cola can.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends consuming no more than 6 tsp of added sugar. And drinking one coke means a person easily exceeds the amount.
According to a study in 2015, 184,000 global deaths each year happen because of sugary drinks. This is something alarming, but it can be controlled with the control in taking the soft drinks.
