Soft drinks (only second after water) remains the most popular beverage drink among Americans. Be that as it may, the Coca-Cola age ought to be careful: the high content of sugar (typically in the form of high fructose corn syrup) in these beverages spells trouble. What these beverages do to the body is to increase the blood sugar levels, and after some time, this translates to problems with insulin resistance, which in the long run can lead to full-blown diabetes. What’s more? They won’t help your waistline either.
