Sugary Soft Drinks and Diabetes

Comments Off

A series of studies have been conducted by several organizations over the past few years that examine the effects of drinking non-diet soft drinks. The results were clear and alarming. An undeniable link has been established between drinking sugary sodas and the development of diabetes.

In one study, over 91,000 women were monitored for a period of eight years. Women who drank at least one soda per day developed diabetes at twice the rate as women who drank diet soda or no sodas at all. That is a shockingly high number. Studies have also showed in recent years that the rate of childhood type 2 diabetes has been increasing in modern times. Perhaps this is one explanation.

According to Dr. Kelly Brownell of Yale University, it can no longer be said that that sugar soft drinks have no impact upon health. In fact, the impact is a resoundingly negative one.
