The new results showed that drinking more than one can of fizzy, sugary drink resulted in lower levels of good cholesterol and higher levels of bad triglyceride in the blood - regardless of whether the people consuming it were overweight, the Age reported.

Researchers said that meant that these teenagers were at higher risk of cardio-metabolic disease later in life.

The Raine Study began in 1989 when 2900 pregnant women were recruited, and their kid's health has been assessed from birth.

The study has been published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
