by Amy Morris

Case Western Reserve University researchers have explained that, according to Health Day,

“This leads to increased salt reabsorption by cells in the kidneys, which might explain why soda consumption has been linked to diabetes, obesity, kidney failure and high blood pressure.”

Also, according to Dr. Orlando Gutierrez who is a kidney specialist at the University of Alabama,


“We now understand that protein in the urine may be a really early marker for heart disease, stroke and heart failure.

With Dr. Anil Agarwal who is also a kidney specialist but at Ohio State University commenting on his statements,

“The new study suggests that even individuals with normal kidney function are at risk for damage if they drink too much soda.”

This study highlights the importance of the annual health checkup that is often ignored because people often say that they feel fine so why should they go? Don’t leave your health checks until irreparable damage has been done!
