It’s no secret that soda is bad for you, but 48 percent of Americans drink it every day, according to Gallup. The average daily amount is 2.6 glasses, with 28 percent drinking one glass a day, on average, and 20 percent drinking two or more glasses. You may be surprised to find out that the other drink you often consume is making you sick.
Iced teas are usually artificially sweetened. Also, they have caffeine. Caffeine stresses the adrenal glands and actually creates a cycle where you feel more and more fatigued; therefore, you need more and more caffeine. Too much of it can lead to arrhythmia, chest pain and even death. Research has linked caffeine overdose to panic attacks.
