Soda and Diabetes

PositiveTips

A wealth of evidence demonstrates that the regular consumption of soft drinks significantly increases the risk of type 2 diabetes. A review of much of that data found regular use of sugary drinks is linked to the onset of diabetes independent of obesity. One daily serving of sugary drinks increased the risk by 18% and when adjusted for obesity there was still a 13% increase. Artificially sweetened beverages and fruits juices were not found to be any healthier.

PositiveTip: Avoid sugary drinks and use fruit juices very moderately.
