5. Diabetes
People who consume sugary drinks regularly—1 to 2 cans a day or more—have a 26% greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes than non soda drinkers (6).

Dr. Christopher Ochner, assistant professor of pediatrics and adolescent medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai suggests that soda consumption causes dangerous influxes in blood sugar levels (7).

“These people wind up spiking and crashing, and the system that keeps trying to regulate this – it’s up and down” Ochner said.

“You get dysregulation, and you wind up getting insulin resistance. The body’s not able to properly metabolize the sugar, which ultimately leads to diabetes.”

People who average one can of a sugary beverage per day also have 20% higher risk of having a heart attack or dying from a heart attack (6).

If you have a soda habit that you just can’t seem to quit, try replacing the drink with healthier options like infused water, tea and fresh vegetable juice. You’ll have more energy and feel healthier after just a few days.
