What happens if you consume too much sugary drinks?

There are some food items out there which we consume even though we know that they are bad for our health. Sugary drinks fall into this category.

Our love for such drinks often makes us forget the basic fact that it’s unhealthy for us. And if you are not sold on the ‘unhealthy’ part, there are some stats to back it up as well. According to the Framingham Heart Study, people who drink sugary beverages are found to have poorer memory.

Also, these people are bound to have a smaller hippocampus, which is the brain region responsible for learning and memory. The threshold for this is two sugary drinks per week.
