Sugary Drinks Link To Diabetes And Metabolic Syndrome Risk Is Clear And Compelling: "- Sent using Google Toolbar"
This should be no surprise to most of us, but sugary drinks can lead to metabolic syndrome and diabetes. What is significant about the study is that this was a meta-analysis, a study of 11 independent studies involving over 300,000 subjects.
Please put down the soda can and pick up some filtered water. Artificial sweeteners are an even bigger disaster and a similar study should be done on them. Even juices are concentrated sugar without the rest of the fruit and raise blood sugar too high. Drink water or occasionally pure grape or pomegranate juice with some seltzer if you really miss the sodas.
