Christian Dr. Bibbins Domingo, a researcher from the University of California, San Francisco, United States, recently published research results on the incidence of heart disease with soft drink consumption.
He said the increasing consumption of soft drinks generally contain high sugar affects 130,000 new cases of diabetes, 14,000 new cases of heart disease, and 50,000 people with heart problems in the last decade.

Using computer simulations, heart disease is associated with a variety of factors, such as obesity and consumption of foods containing salt. “So far, we underestimated the incidence of soft drink with heart disease because it is more popular drinks on teenagers. The focus of this disease more adults over the age of 35 years,” said Domingo.
