In this video, we’re going to talk about soft drinks and fatty liver disease.

It amazes me that so many people still drink a large amount of soda each day. Most people aren’t aware of what it can potentially do to your body—especially your liver.

If you’re healthy, your liver should only be made up of around 5% fat. When you have a fatty liver, the liver can be between 60-80% fat.

Fatty liver disease is the leading cause of cirrhosis, which is a permanent liver condition.

In one study, soft drinks were the only independent variable that predicted a fatty liver by 82.5%. This means that, out of all of the dietary habits, drinking sugary soft drinks is the worst for your liver.

Here’s a breakdown of the most common sugary drinks in the study:

• Coca Cola - 40%

• Diet Coke - 40%

• Fruit juice - 20%

High-fructose corn syrup does the most damage out of any of the ingredients. High-fructose corn syrup is made up of around 50% glucose and 50% fructose. Fructose can only be dealt with by the liver.

The liver turns fructose into triglycerides, which then can spill out of the liver and into other organs.
