Soft Drink Risks

Posted: Updated:

The risks of developing diabetes increases nearly a quarter as soft drink intake increases.

One study says that drinking one extra sugar-filled soft drink per day can increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 22 percent.

Doctors say research shows that the effect of sweetened beverages on diabetes goes beyond the possibility of gaining weight.  The study also found drinking fruit juice did not increase the risk of diabetes.
