The sugar found in sweetened beverages, like soda, accounts for about one-third of the added sugar total in the average American diet, an amount that's been linked to weight gain, diabetes, low semen quality in men, early menstruation in women and now, a greatly reduced possibility of conceiving a child.

"We found positive associations between intake of sugar-sweetened beverages and lower fertility, which were consistent after controlling for many other factors, including obesity, caffeine intake, alcohol, smoking, and overall diet quality," the study's lead author Elizabeth Hatch said. "Couples planning a pregnancy might consider limiting their consumption of these beverages, especially because they are also related to other adverse health effects."

Pregnancy Sex Tips: Have Fun Sex and Get Pregnant . At 35, most women have a 15 to 20 percent chance of getting pregnant in a given month. That could mean a 78 percent chance of conceiving within the year.

Now, a new study led by Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) researchers has found that the intake of one or more sugar-sweetened beverages per day —by either partner—is associated with a decreased chance of getting pregnant .

For the study, published in the journal Epidemiology, the researchers surveyed almost 4,000 women between the ages of 21 and 45 and about 1,000 of their male partners on their medical histories, lifestyle choices and diet — including how many sugar-heavy drinks they consumed. They found that women who drank at least one soda per day had a 25% lower chance of becoming pregnant and male soda consumption was associated with a 33% reduced probability.

Drinking energy drinks was associated with even more severe odds, the study noted, but fruit juices and diet sodas had little associating with fertility.

"Given the high levels of sugar-sweetened beverages consumed by reproductive-aged couples in North America," the study said, "these findings could have important public health implications."

Slice, Everyone’s Sixth-Favorite Soda From the ’90s, Is Back — Sort Of .
Get ready for another LaCroix competitor.The Chicago Tribune reports that he’s acquired the rights to Slice, which former owner PepsiCo let lapse years ago, and now he plans to relaunch the drink under a different manufacturer that he’s calling New Slice Ventures. But, oh how times have changed in the decades since Slice’s supposed heyday. Sales of full-sugar sodas are in a nosedive right now, so a new soda — even one that may be nostalgic for some people, and comes in a flavor like Mandarin Orange — probably isn’t a great idea. With that in mind, Thomann wants to turn Slice into a carbonated beverage that’s “more palatable” than sparkling water.
