Yahoo Health
It’s no secret that soda is bad for your body — but how often do you consider the other liquids you’re guzzling? If you’re like the majority of Americans, not often enough, says Brenda Davy, Ph.D., R.D., a professor of human nutrition, foods, and exercise at Virginia Tech University. “There are a lot of drinks we would refer to as ‘sugar-sweetened beverages’ that folks may not think of as sugar-sweetened,” she tells Yahoo Health.
