Most of us like to get a jolt of energy or sweet taste from a soda. But scientists have fully studied the health risks of such beverages and the results are frightening.

High fructose corn syrup, found in many products, can also lead to problems with your heart. It can cause something called metabolic syndrome which leads to both and increase in diabetes and heart problems.

1st effect it has is a spike in the overall sugar in your blood causes your liver to turn the excess into fat. The liver dumps some of it into your body when it can’t transform anymore. This helps keep you awake and feeling good for a short time. However when you get too much of it your brain adjusts and will need more of it to stay awake. This leads to a vicious and addictive cycle.
