The Karolinska Institute in Stockholm study reports that drinking just one can of fizzy drinks per day increases risk of heart failure by 23 percent. Further analysis, which did not have people diagnosed with heart failure in the first five years, showed that the link was in fact, real.

The study has been published in the journal Heart.
