Soda is a surprising culprit which has been linked to heart disease, high blood pressure, and even stroke. Soft drinks have become one of the biggest sources of sugar in our American diets and many people drink large amounts every day.
These sodas can cause blood sugar levels to spike, arteries to harden, and inflammation. Water is the best beverage but if you need caffeine coffee or unsweetened tea is a better option. Drinking just one soda a day can increase a man’s risk of heart attack by 20%). Additionally, research has shown soda is linked with heart disease in women.
