Sugary sodas don’t supply your body with any nutrition, and an average can of soda contains around 17 teaspoons of sugar, which is twice the recommended daily amount. According to research in The American Journal of Nutrition, drinking over one soda per day greatly increases your risk of having a stroke.

Basically, if you’re going to drink soda, stick to one can (or less) per day. If you just can’t get enough of the fizz, try drinking soda water with some lemon juice squeezed into it.
