If you drink one or more sodas a day, you might be at higher risk for heart disease .
That's according to a new study published in the American Heart Association Journal: "Circulation."*
The study found that people who drink one or more soft drinks a day have a more than 50-percent higher risk of developing "metabolic syndrome." It's a cluster of symptoms that increase the risk for heart disease.
The study also showed only a marginal difference between those who drank regular soda and those who drank diet soda.
The American Beverage Association is critical of the study. It says the link could be made with any caloric product.
