Even a single can of soda a day is harmful, reveals a study

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Drinking more than 33 centilitres of soda a day is dangerous for the liver, says a study by Inserm unveiled by Le Parisien. Sugary and carbonated drinks in fact fill this fat organ.

A single can of soda a day is already too much, revealed a study of the Inserm published on July 9 by Le Parisien and will be presented on the 11th, at an international conference on the liver in Paris.

According to this study, drinking even a small amount is bad for the liver. Researchers previously only had estimates.

“From now on, we know that a consumption of 33 centilitres a day endangers the liver”, explained to the Parisian Lawrence Serfaty, professor at the University Hospital of Strasbourg.

The silent pathology that has the effect of gorging the fat liver is nicknamed the ” soda disease”. It is caused by a poor diet, rich in sugar and fat.

Nearly 20% of French people have already reached the liver without realizing it, according to the study. For some of those affected, this creates an inflammation called Nash.

Over time, the liver may become fibrotic, malfunction, cirrhosis or cancer may even develop.

The researchers hope to better warn consumers against these soft and sugary drinks.

Children in danger

This phenomenon becomes a scourge, even among children, the liver of the French deteriorating for twenty years, warns the newspaper. Some parents even have the habit of putting Coca-Cola or fruit juice in babies’ bottles.

These juices, though natural, contain vitamins and fiber but also large amounts of sugar, the researchers warned.

Light sodas are less problematic, said Parisian Professor Mathurin, head of the Department of diseases of the digestive system Lille University Hospital.

“They do not increase the risk of having liver disease. The real problem is that 90% of people who drink regular soda every day also have a very unbalanced diet,” he added.

Specialists traditionally insist on the need for balanced eating, exercise and giving up drinking sodas on a daily basis.
