The Russian doctor and health TV presenter, Alexander Myasnikov, revealed in the broadcast of the channel “Russia 1” the benefit and harm of a number of drinks on human health.
Myasnikov said that sweet carbonated drinks represent the greatest danger to human health, noting with regret that these dangerous drinks are sold today in all shops.
“It’s something that causes diabetes, obesity and eventually cancer… and this really is the path to severe ill health, from osteoporosis to cancer and heart disease,” he added.
The doctor pointed out that even plain water should not be drunk unless you feel thirsty, stressing at the same time that it is generally less dangerous to health.
Myasnikov also spoke about the beneficial properties of tea and coffee, explaining that coffee in particular contributes to the prevention of cardiovascular and liver diseases. Green tea, in turn, is characterized by its anti-cancer effect.
Scientists from the University of Reading, Britain, have revealed a drink that can extend life. In their study, they talk about the necessity of eating at least one glass of milk per day. Scientists confirmed that this reduces the level of cholesterol in the body, and reduces the risk of coronary heart disease by 14%.
