    Cut Back Soda to Prevent Being Overweight or Obese

    Close Up of Soda Cans in Ice with Condensation

                            Soda Cans in Ice 

    Sugar-sweetened drinks are the cause of obesity and poor oral health. Reducing consumption will lead to health benefits such as fewer cavities and healthier weight.

    Key takeaways:

    • You should consume less than 10 percent of calories from added sugars per day. The sugars are added to food during processing either to enhance flavor or as preservative.
    • Drinking soda or a glass of juice as an occasional treat is entirely different from habitually drinking them. Such habits are downright dangerous and the reason behind the rising cases of obesity.
    •        All this sugar leads to dental cavities and tooth decay.

    According to a study just published in the medical journal The Lancet, reducing sugars added to sugar-sweetened drinks by 40 percent during a five-year period could prevent 1.5 million cases of people becoming overweight and obese.
