Scientists have studied the effects of sugary drinks on people's health. Moreover, the study took into account both drinks with sugar and with numerous sweeteners.

As it turned out, drinks with sugar lead to an increased risk of premature death. The more a person drinks them, the more he risks. This concerns not only soda, but also juices, as well as coffee and tea with added sugar.

So, the use of one to four drinks with sugar per day increases the risk of premature death by a percentage, from two to six per week – by 6%, and two or more times a day – by 21%. This negative effect on women is more pronounced.

When replacing sugar with artificial substitutes, the risk of premature death is not so high, however, due to sugar substitutes, diseases of the cardiovascular system more often develop.
