3. Sugar-Rich Beverages
Sugar loaded sodas, even diet coke, are the unhealthiest habit that you simply need to eliminate from your diet as they increase your risk for countless chronic ailments, especially heart diseases and diabetes.
Even scarier is the fact that excessive consumption of sugar promotes the release of cytokines, which are basically harmful inflammatory messengers.
A recent study attempted to analyse the association between the risk factors contributing to arthritis and the excessive consumption of sugary soda. They examined the results of two long-term studies that accumulated data of 30 years.
The results revealed that women who consumed one or more sodas every day increase their risk for arthritis by a shocking 63% as opposed to women who abstain from sugary sodas and beverages.
