The 25 most dangerous drinks for health: many we drink every day

Experts have created a ranking of the most dangerous drinks in the world. Drinking just one serving of one of these could significantly exceed the recommended limit of sugar you should consume throughout the day, reports Eat This.

A long line of unbranded soda bottles in various flavors and colors, the focus on the center of the line.


When you're thirsty, soda, iced tea or juice can be a convenient alternative to water. But often quenching your thirst with these drinks has consequences. The harsh truth: Many of them contain more sugar than you should consume in an entire day.

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends a maximum of 25 grams of added sugar per day for women and a maximum of 36 grams per day for men, but the less added sugar you consume, the better. Eating too much added sugar is associated with a higher risk of diabetes, obesity, heart disease and other serious chronic diseases. Sugary drinks increase risk premature death. Read in our material about six drinks that can prolong your life and maintain your health.

You should limit your intake of the most harmful sugary drinks from the supermarket, or better yet, eliminate them from your diet completely.

Rating of the most harmful drinks

10. AriZona Green Tea

1 20 oz bottle:

  • Calories: 170
  • Fats: 0 g
  • Sodium: 0 mg
  • Carbohydrates: 43 g (fiber: 0 g, sugar: 42 g)
  • Proteins: 0 g

Unsweetened green tea is one of the healthiest drinks. It is a rich source of antioxidants and provides you with energy without the calories. AriZona ruins a natural energy drink by adding high fructose corn syrup and honey. And this is 42 grams of sugar.

Barq's Root Beer

1 12 oz can:

  • Calories: 180
  • Fats: 0 g
  • Sodium: 65 mg
  • Carbohydrates: 44 g (fiber: 0 g, sugar: 44 g)
  • Proteins: 0 g

Thanks to the beer's signature spicy, almost medicinal flavor notes, you'd never guess it could contain so much sugar—44 grams to be exact. That's more than a can of cola.

Welch's Grape Juice

1 10 oz bottle:

  • Calories: 180
  • Fats: 0 g
  • Sodium: 15 mg
  • Carbohydrates: 46 g (fiber: 0 g, sugar: 44 g)
  • Proteins: 1 g

Of course, it's made without artificial flavors, GMOs, or high fructose corn syrup. But that doesn't negate the fact that the drink contains 44 grams of sugar per 10-ounce bottle. Instead, fill your cup with fresh grapes, which contain just 62 calories, 16 grams of sugar and 1 gram of fiber.

Mountain Dew

1 12 oz bottle:

  • Calories: 170
  • Fats: 0 g
  • Sodium: 60 mg
  • Carbohydrates: 46 g (fiber: 0 g, sugar: 46 g)
  • Proteins: 0 g

With 46 grams of sugar and 170 calories, this lemon-lime drink will provide you with more than your daily dose of added sugar. If you're craving a refreshing sparkling drink, opt for flavored lemon seltzer instead and your blood glucose levels will thank you.

Starbucks Frappuccino Coffee Drink

1 bottle:

  • Calories: 300
  • Fat: 4,5 g, (saturated fat: 3 g)
  • Sodium: 140 mg
  • Carbohydrates: 54 g (fiber: 0 g, sugar: 47 g)
  • Proteins: 9 g

One bottle contains 47 grams of sugar, which is equivalent to almost 12 teaspoons.

Naked Green Machine Juice

1 15,2 oz bottle:

  • Calories: 270
  • Fats: 0 g
  • Sodium: 25 mg
  • Carbohydrates: 63 g (fiber: 0 g, sugar: 46 g)
  • Proteins: 4 g

The drink has a very strong image of a healthy product, but the problem is that it is full of sugar. One bottle of Naked contains 53 grams of sugar, mostly from apple juice concentrate.

If you're craving a fruity drink, make a smoothie with fresh fruit and don't forget to leave the skin on, as that's where all the blood-sugar-stabilizing fiber is found!

AriZona Sweet Tea

1 20 oz bottle:

  • Calories: 220
  • Fats: 0 g
  • Sodium: 60 mg
  • Carbohydrates: 54 g (Fiber: 0 g, Sugar: 53 g)
  • Proteins: 0 g

AriZona's popular tea contains a whopping 53 grams of sugar. It's like brewing black tea and throwing 13 teaspoons of sugar into the mug. No thanks.

Monster Energy Drink

1 16 oz can:

  • Calories: 230
  • Fats: 0 g
  • Sodium: 370 mg
  • Carbohydrates: 58 g (Fiber: 0 g, Sugar: 54 g)
  • Proteins: 0 g

The drink contains a monstrous amount of sugar. Each jar contains 54 grams, which is twice the daily requirement for women.

Naked Blue Machine Juice

1 15,2 oz bottle:

  • Calories: 320
  • Fats: 0 g
  • Sodium: 20 mg
  • Carbohydrates: 76 g (fiber: 3 g, sugar: 55 g)
  • Proteins: 2 g

Like other Naked juices, the first ingredient in this blue bottle is apple juice concentrate. Because this bottle doesn't contain fruit peels, you're missing out on fiber, a nutrient that helps stabilize blood sugar levels and prevent spikes.

Naked Mighty Mango Juice

1 15,2 oz bottle:

  • Calories: 290
  • Fats: 0 g
  • Sodium: 20 mg
  • Carbohydrates: 68 g (fiber: 0 g, sugar: 57 g)
  • Proteins: 2 g

The label says that this juice is mixed with 1¼ mango, 1¾ apple, ½ orange and ⅓ banana. However, other than 57 grams of sugar, you won't get a drop of fiber from these fruits. Skip Naked's mango smoothie and eat real fruit instead. Better yet, pair fruit with a source of protein (like low-fat cheese) for a snack that won't lower your blood sugar.
