What Happens to Your Body When You Drink Soda Every Day


5. Your risk of heart disease increases

Yes, as we move down the body, it only seems to get worse. A Harvard University study found that those who drink just one 12-ounce can of soda a day significantly increase their risk of chronic heart disease (CHD). Furthermore, those who drank large amounts of soda were 20 percent more likely to have a heart attack than those who drank small amounts of soda.

6. You could negatively affect your reproductive capabilities

Studies of both men and women have found that consuming large amounts of sugar, including soda could greatly impact reproduction. In fact, a study examining 189 healthy young men at the University of Rochester, found that those who drank more sugar-sweetened beverages, including soda, experienced lower sperm motility.

The effects soda has on fertility don’t stop with the male population.  According to a 2018 study published in the journal Epidemiology found that drinking one or more sugary drinks each day is linked to reduced fertility, for both men and women. Specifically, women who consumed at least one soda per day had a 25 percent lower probability of getting pregnant than those who did not drink soda.
