As you probably already know, soda is not a healthy drink, but did you know that this drink can cause various chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease? 

Studies have shown that drinking soda is bad for your health. 

A 2012 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that men and women who consumed one or more drinks a day had higher rates of high blood pressure and high cholesterol than those who did not drink the drink.

Women who took part in the study were significantly more likely to suffer strokes when they used soda. 

A 2012 study published in the Circulation of the blood found that men who consumed the highest amount of sugar-sweetened beverages, such as soda were 20% more likely to develop cardiovascular disease than men who consumed the lowest amount of sugar-sweetened beverages.

Another study, which was published in 2013 in the American Journal of Public Health, analyzed beverage consumption in 75 countries and found that soda consumption was associated with obesity and diabetes worldwide.

In a study published in the Journal Diabetes Care in 2010, it was shown that people who receive a large number of sugary drinks including soda and fruit juices 26% more likely to develop diabetes than those who consume less of these drinks. 

These health risks associated with soda consumption may be related to the high fructose content of corn syrup found in soda. 

A 2010 study published in the Journal Pharmacology Biochemistry and Behavior found that rats who consumed high-fructose corn syrup gained weight and their fat and triglyceride levels increased.

The results of these studies show that soda can negatively affect your well-being which is not surprising given the low nutritional value and in most cases, sodas.

For example, a 12-ounce can of Coca-Cola contains 140 calories and 39 grams of sugar and it's not a major nutrient. For your health, you should limit your intake of soda.

Too little sleep can adversely affect your well-being especially heart health.

A study published in 2012 in the American Journal of Hypertension found that sleeping less than seven hours a day was associated with high blood pressure, even after adjusting factors such as demographics and behavioral factors.

Another study published in 2009 in the Journal PLoS ONE found that five nights of sleep deprivation resulted in heart rate and high levels of inflammation among studied participants.

The authors of the study concluded that over time sleep deprivation may lead to an increased risk of heart disease.

The authors of a study published in 2008 in the Journal of the American Medical Association analyzed sleep patterns in healthy adults, and their findings were alarming.

After just five years, study participants who slept less than five hours each night were more likely than those who slept more than five hours each night to receive harmful calcium from their arteries.

Lack of sleep can also damage cognitive health. The author of a 2010 report published in Progress in Brain Research advised that very little sleep reduces attention and alertness and leads to slower responses.

The authors of a 2007 study published in the Journal of Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment reported that sleep deprivation causes memory impairment, attention and decision-making.

Studies show that too little sleep can have a detrimental effect on life.

To avoid infections, finish your day with a good night's sleep, and make sure you engage in regular exercise and avoid sugary sodas.

Spending too much time in front of your TV can actually kill you.

A study published in the 2012 edition of the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that those who watched six or more hours a day reduced their life expectancy by about five years compared with those who did not.

Further research has shown that living a sedentary lifestyle can be dangerous to your health and sedentary lifestyle is linked to a variety of poor health outcomes.

A study published in 2012 on Applied Physiology Nutrition & Metabolism found that adults who were physically inactive were 21% more likely to develop breast cancer and 74% more likely to have type 2 diabetes than physically active adults.

The study found that 15% to 39% of various chronic diseases were the result of physical inactivity. Among men in the study, 26% of cardiovascular disease was caused by physical inactivity, and physical inactivity was caused by 27% of cardiovascular disease among women.

A study published in the 2013 edition of the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition & Physical Activity studied the relationship between chronic and chronic diseases among older men.

Studies have found that men who spend more than four hours a day sitting are more likely to have than men who live less than four hours a day suffering from a chronic illness during their lifetime.

Specifically, those who sat more than six hours a day were more likely than those who lived less than four hours a day to develop diabetes.

Looks like spending a lot of time sitting can be dangerous to your health!
