Is soda affecting your heart?

heart health tips

Drinking two or more sugar-sweetened beverages a day may expand a woman’s waistline and increase her risk of heart disease and diabetes, according to the American Heart Association.

“Soda is a four-letter word,” says Suzanne Steinbaum, M.D., an attending cardiologist and Director of Women and Heart Disease at the Heart and Vascular Institute of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. “Even diet soda is associated with metabolic syndrome and an increased risk for heart disease.”

Doctors aren't quite sure about the link from soda to heart disease, but they suspect soda drinkers have a diet that’s more unhealthy than non-soda drinkers.
