Soft drinks are becoming more and more popular these days. Do you know that drinking a soft drink shortens 12 minutes of ‘healthy’ life?
The claim was made in a new medical study examining the effects of diet on human health and the environment.
The study, published in the Journal Nature Foods, examined more than 5,800 foods and rated them useful or harmful.
The study by the University of Michigan in the United States found that the use of fast food has increased in recent times, but on a daily basis it is very difficult to know the extent to which individual choices affect the health of us and the environment.
Research has found that replacing only 10% of the total daily calories from beef and processed meat with grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, pulses and certain seafood can add 48 minutes to a healthy life. ۔
The same diet can also help improve the environment.
Researchers estimated the effects of diet on human health using data from a large study.
The results show that the negative effects of processed meat, beef and other foods from ground fruits, vegetables, pulses, nuts and seafood can be significantly reduced.
The researchers said that the results show that minor lifestyle changes are beneficial to health and the environment and do not require dramatic dietary changes.
