Coca-Cola, the most popular soda in the world, is endangering men’s health. According to a recent study conducted by Harvard scientists, men should stop drinking not only Coke, but all sugary drinks, as they increase the risk of a serious disease.
Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health have found out that men who consume sugary drinks every day increase their chances of developing heart disease. Over 42,000 men, with ages ranging from 40 to 75, participated in the study. After eliminating other factors that might make them prone to cardiovascular conditions, it was noticed that the health risk increases with 20% in those drinking a minimum of a 12-ounce portion daily.
Along with sugary drinks, here are some other factors that should be minimized in order to protect our hearts:
• Regular smoking
• Lack of regular exercise
• High alcohol consumption
