Secret Side Effects of Drinking Soda
1. You may feel more hungry
According to an American Journal of Public Health report, this happens for a few different reasons. For one, soda contains effectively zero nutrients and vitamins,
especially protein, so people often report feeling hungry and unsatisfied afterward. Another reason for increased hunger is that soda contains high amounts of fructose
which doesn't lower hunger hormones in the same way that glucose does. A 14-ounce bottle of Coke, for example, has 11.1 grams of sugar, 7.2 of those being from fructose.
2. More Stomach Fat
Our stomachs contain two types of fat, including subcutaneous fat and visceral fat. Subcutaneous fat is found under the skin & serves as important source for regulating temperature,
storing energy, & protecting our bones and muscles.Visceral fat is the type of fat that is found in our abdominal area & is known to be more immediately dangerous to our health than subcutaneous fat.
3. You may become addicted
The study found that the regular soda drinkers experienced withdrawal symptoms when they went three days without having any. Their symptoms included decreased motivation,
lower ability to focus, and frequent headaches. As more research is being done toward the addictive qualities of soda and added sugar
4. increase your risk of dementia or stroke
A 2017 study published in Stroke looked at the effects of artificially sweetened drink consumption (soda), as well as beverages with added sugar.
. They found that regularly consuming artificially-sweetened drinks led to a higher risk of multiple types of stroke, as well as multiple types of dementia.
For stroke risk, ischemic stroke was higher than the other types. This type of stroke occurs when an artery leading to the brain is clogged.
For dementia risk, soda consumption was associated with an increase in both all-cause dementia and Alzheimer's dementia.
5. increase your risk of gout
According to a study published in JAMA, women who regularly drink soda have a higher chance of developing gout than women who don't drink soda.
As we mentioned before, soda contains high levels of fructose. This becomes an issue when consumed regularly because fructose is known to increase levels of uric acid in the body.
