To cut it short
Sugar filled drinks have become part of our staple diet. Everyday we have a fizzy drink, an energy drink or an artificially favored juice without even realising their harmful effects.
Recent research estimates that every year approximately 184,000 adults die due to consumption of sugary drink. The research defines these drinks as sugar-sweetened fizzy drinks, fruit drinks, sweetened iced teas, sports/energy drinks, or homemade sugary drinks.
Next time you pick up a drink, think twice of the consequences and try easing your sugar consumption!
