The Effects of Soft Drinks on Some Physiological and Biochemical Parameters in Male Albino Rats
AbstractThe present study aimed to investigate the effects of soft drinks such as Cola and Miranda on some physiological and biochemical parameters in the blood of white rats such as body weight (B.W), hemoglobin (HB), blood glucose (B.G) concentration and estimation of lipid profile estimation which included: total cholestrol (TC), triglycerides (TG), low density lipoprotein (LDL-c), high density lipoprotein (HDL-c), total protein as well as estimating the concentration of urea and creatinine in the blood serum of male albino rats treated for one month.
The results showed significant differences (p≤0.05) in some parameters compared with control group like body weight, blood glucose concentration and lipid profile, while other values such as concentration of hemoglobin, urea and total protein showed no significant differences with control group.
These results show the relationship of soft drinks and their harmful effects on public health as well as their cause of metabolic syndromes such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes and high blood lipids.
