Soda drinkers get fatter on the inside, according to a new study. It found that people drinking sugar-sweetened beverages daily, like soda, add more “visceral fat” inside their abdomen, compared to people not drinking soda.
The study measured body fat using computed tomography and followed up people over six years. Unfortunately it’s just observational evidence, i.e. statistics, so this study by itself does not prove that the soda causes the effect.
The study only tells us that people drinking soda every day tend to get fatter on the inside. For some reason. Like, perhaps, all the sugar they consume.
Are you surprised?
