1. Your heart health will improve.
A Harvard University study in 2012 showed that drinking sweet drinks increases the risk of chronic heart disease. Another study in 2011 found that sweet drinks increase blood pressure. Reducing soda consumption by just one drink per day can lead to improved blood pressure and heart health.
2. Your brain will get an impulse.
While many people drink non-alcoholic beverages to gain energy, the effects of so much sugar far outweigh the benefits. One study has shown that regular consumption of sugar for many years can lead to learning disabilities, memory problems and behavioural plasticity.
Other studies have found a link between consumption of soft drinks and increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia. Studies have shown that mice that received sweet drinks had increased deposits of plaque, which is a characteristic feature of Alzheimer’s disease.
