One Soft Drink : 26 Percent Greater Diabetes Risk

[Study] Evidence of Soft Drink

It is related with Fructose.  You consume fructose from fructose-containing sugars, in sugar-sweetened beverages.  Do you know that half of the U.S. population consumes these types of drinks every day?

And the results?

  • as high as a 26 percent greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes,
  • a 35 percent greater risk of heart attack or fatal heart disease, and
  • a 16 percent increased risk of stroke

Because  these soft drinks and sugar-sweetened beverages damage cardiovascular health.  This study found the evidence that beverages which contain (high fructose corn syrup or sucrose) can lead to excess weight gain and greater risk of developing type  2 diabetes.

You should understand how ow fructose is metabolized in your body. Please check this new study.


  • Put down the pop! The biggest study of its kind reveals just one to two serves of soft drink a day increases risk of type 2 diabetes by 26 percent.
  • Daily soft drink consumption is also linked to 35 percent greater risk of heart attack or heart disease.

Forget those slanted studies funded by Coke and Big Sugar, this is the REAL DEAL. The most comprehensive review of sugar-sweetened drinks to date reveals that just one to two serves of soft drink daily wreaks havoc with your metabolic health.

So, what do we do next?

It’s clear that we can no longer go on drinking soft drinks the way we do (teenagers, including 51 per cent of males and 38 per cent of females aged between 14 and 18, are the biggest consumers in Australia). And across the pond, sugar-sweetened beverages are the No.1 contributor of added sugars to the American diet.

“Although reducing the consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages or added sugar alone is unlikely to solve the obesity epidemic entirely, limiting intake is one simple change that will have a measurable impact on weight control and prevention of cardio-metabolic diseases,” concludes the study’s lead author, Frank Hu, MD, PhD, Professor of Nutrition and Epidemiology at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Hu also says that there is “urgent need for public health strategies” to reduce sugar consumption, such as nutritional labels which clearly show added sugar content, as recommended by the US Food and Drug Administration in July this year. And, with this kind of data to back him up, the argument for tougher regulation on sugar seems stronger than ever.
