Just one soft drink shortens the life span by 12 minutes, Research

These days, soft drinks are getting increasingly popular. Did you realize that drinking a soft drink reduces ‘healthy’ life by 12 minutes?

A new medical study exploring the effects of nutrition on human health and the environment made the allegation.

The study, which was published in Nature Foods, evaluated more than 5,800 items and categorized them as either beneficial or detrimental.

According to a study conducted by the University of Michigan in the United States, the consumption of fast food has increased in recent years, but it is difficult to know the amount to which our everyday decisions affect our health and the environment.

The addition of 48 minutes to a healthy life can be achieved by substituting only 10% of the total daily calories from beef and processed meat with grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, and specific seafood. ۔

The same diet can also contribute to environmental improvement.

Using data from a comprehensive investigation, researchers calculated the impact of nutrition on human health.

The findings indicate that the adverse effects of processed meat, beef, and other foods made from ground fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and shellfish can be greatly mitigated.

According to the researchers, the findings indicate that moderate lifestyle modifications are good to health and the environment and do not necessitate drastic food adjustments.
