Paying attention to diet and monitoring body’s intake of nutrients usually leads to focusing on food only and neglecting healthy, nutritious drinks, and this may lead to making mistakes while consuming drinks that lead to harm to health.
The following are drinking habits that you should avoid to reduce any potential harm to health, according to what MSN website reported:
Excessive drinking of coffee
If you love coffee, you may have to take control of it if you want to live a long and fruitful life. While a small number of studies have found some noticeable benefits about consuming coffee daily, large amounts of coffee can cause some serious physical damage.
According to experts from Mayo Clinic, those who drink more than 28 cups of coffee per week have a 21% higher risk of premature death, and men face a 50% higher risk than women.
Drink soda daily
Too much sugar can ruin any diet, and same is true when you consume too much of it in form of a drink. According to New York Times, a recent study found that consuming a soft drink daily increased risk of death by 7%.
Drink juice every day
If you thought juice could provide a healthy alternative to soda, it is time to rethink your nutrition plans. Although juice may come from fruit, drink contains a lot of sugar, and according to CBS, drinking a lot of juice can increase chance of death. Drinking more than 8 ounces of juice per day can greatly increase your chances of developing obesity and coronary artery disease.
And according to a study from University of California, juice may contain many heavy metals, including lead, making it very dangerous to your health.
Excessive intake of milk daily
According to CBS, an increased level of milk consumption leads to a significant increase in deaths. According to experts, 3 cups of milk a day increases risk of death by 10% for men, and increases chance of cancer in women by 44%.
Drink plenty of protein shakes
If you want to bulk up, drinking a protein shake seems an easy way to do so. However, according to a study published in The Independent, se drinks may have opposite effect. Increasing your protein intake to very high levels in one day reduces your quality of life in later years and this leads to premature death. The risk of death stems from added BCAA supplements. According to Harvard Medical School, a person should get no more than 10% of ir calories from a protein source.
