Fizzy drinks increase the risk of fractures
If you drink a lot of soda, you may want to burp. But there are many dangerous side effects because of drinking soda. The new study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that most drinking soda may increase the risk of hip fractures or other bone problems.

The team examined data on more than 70 thousand postmenopausal women. Among those who drank 12 or more sodas every day, the risk of hip fracture increased by about 14 percent compared with people who do not drink.
The more you drink soda, the more likely you run the risk of hip fracture.

The research team observed soda ingredients such as sugars, acids, caffeine, and phosphorus, but did not find a pattern that clarify the relationship between soda and hip pain. There is a possibility that some of the ingredients contained in the soda, such as carbonation, can make the bones weaker.

"Soda has no nutritional value. You do not need to drink it," said Teresa Fung, a professor of nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health.

If you rarely drink soda, you may not have a reason to worry. However, if you drink soda every day or almost every day, this is one of the reasons to change your habits.
