Soft Drinks May Cause Aging

15 May

Diet soft drinks may be one of your favorite weapons in preventing weight gain, but they may also be one of your worst enemies when it comes to aging.

A recent study has revealed that drinking sweetened sodas daily can speed how fast the bodyโ€™s cells age.

The study conducted by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, showed that drinking sweetened sodas daily can accelerate the cellular aging of tissues.

The bottom line is that drinking an 8-ounce (250 ml) serving of soda was associated with 1.9 additional years of cellular aging.

Even worse, if you drink a 20-ounce bottle (over 500 ml) of a sugary soft drink daily, you’re inflicting 4.6ย additional years of biological wear and tear on your cells.

Maybe, it’s time to switch over to water.
