What Drinks Cause Inflammation in the Body – A Nutritionist’s Answer

There are a certain number of drinks that, when consumed regularly, cause a sufficient number of inflammatory processes in the human body. Long-term consumption of some drinks can lead to chronic inflammation. This was stated by the famous nutritionist Amy Goodson.

“Regular consumption of large quantities of soda, sweet tea, or other high-sugar drinks significantly increases the risk of chronic inflammation, as well as other health problems,” the expert says.

According to a study published in the American Journal of Nutrition, drinking one can of sugary soda a day increases insulin and cholesterol levels on average. In addition, the publication of the American Society of Nephrology notes that fructose also negatively affects inflammatory processes in the body.

“Drinking a large number of beverages leads to weight gain, which in turn increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and metabolic disorders accompanied by chronic inflammation,” the doctor added.
