Drinking Soda Can Lead To Infertility

Men who drink a liter of cola or more a day, or a little more than a medium soft drink at Burger King, have sperm counts 30 percent lower than guys who shun the soft drink, a Danish study found. Translation- Cola drinkers could have a higher risk of infertility. It doesn’t seem to be the caffeine; while sperm counts dropped among heavy coffee drinkers, too, it wasn’t enough to be statistically significant. And it’s likely not artificial sweetners, either, since few of the men swilled diet soda. Instead, the researchers believe, the culprit may be something else in the soda, or more likely, the fact that the cola drinkers had less healthy lifestyles-they ate more fast food and fewer fruits and vegetables- than men who opted for other beverages.
