New research has revealed yet another reason to cut down on the soda.

It might contribute to heart failure.

A new study in the British Medical Journal says men who drank just two sweetened drinks per day had a 23 percent higher risk of going into heart failure.

Researchers came to that conclusion by monitoring the food habits of 42,000 Swedish men.

Heart failure happens when your heart isn’t strong enough to pump enough blood and oxygen to support your body.

The researchers warned, they only studied men between the ages of 45-79, so the findings may not apply to younger age groups or women.

According to a study in the journal Circulation, sugary drinks may be linked to an estimated 184,000 adult deaths each year worldwide.

Health experts recommend limiting your soda intake by switching to water, seltzer or unsweetened tea.
