  • Diabetes: Daily Soft Drink 'Raises Risk'

    Researchers say just one can of sugary soft drink each day can increase the risk of diabetes by 22%.


    Drinking just one can of sugary soft drink each day raises the relative risk of diabetes by around a fifth, a study has found.

    Every extra can consumed increases the chances of having the disease by 22%, compared with drinking one can a month or less, researchers say.

    The increase in risk only fell slightly after adjusting the findings to take account of body mass index (BMI).

    This suggests it was not simply being overweight that led to the trend, said the researchers.

    Sugar-sweetened drinks appeared to have an effect on the body unrelated to obesity.

    The results of the study conducted in the UK and eight other European countries broadly mirror previous findings from mostly American research.

    A total of 350,000 individuals were questioned about their diet, including their consumption of sugar-sweetened and artificially sweetened "light" soft drinks and juices.

    All were participants in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (Epic) study looking at links between diet and cancer.

    Incidence of Type-2 diabetes was compared with consumption of 12 fluid ounce servings of sweetened drinks, equivalent to a normal-sized can of Coca-Cola.

    The scientists, led by Dr Dora Romaguera, from Imperial College London, wrote in the journal Diabetologia: "This study corroborates the association between increased incidence of Type-2 diabetes and high consumption of sugar-sweetened soft drinks in European adults.

    "Given the increase in sweet beverage consumption in Europe, clear messages on its deleterious effect on health should be given to the population."

    Sometimes these studies amaze me. Did they really need a study to say that stuff isn't healthy??
