Pop and Your Heart
An apple a day keeps the doctor away-how about pop??? Think again!!!
A recent study out of Children's Hospital in Boston has linked sugary drinks such as pop to an increased risk in Coronary Heart Disease(CHD).
Even a moderate amount of pop-one can a day-is now associated with a 20% increased risk for CHD!
Doctors from the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston are citing these results as a substantial risk for CHD in the United States given the widespread consumption of pop.
Pop is best consumed as a treat and not an every day beverage. Increased pop consumption has been known to cause tooth decay and now there is evidence that supports risk for diabetes and heart disease!
The best beverage is still good old fashioned water with tea and coffee(without sweeteners) following close behind.
