Consumption of soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages may contribute to hundreds of thousands of deaths around the world, mainly due to Type 2 diabetes, a new study says.

The results show sugar-sweetened beverage consumption is linked to 180,000 deaths a year worldwide, including 25,000 deaths a year in the United States, the researchers say.

Holy Cow!!

These drinks kill almost as many people as firearms.

So… when is Dianne Feinstein going to propose a ban on Coke.

    so they were able to narrow down the study subjects to only those who drink soda pop and eat and drink nothing else then? so they know for a fact the diabetes was caused by the sugar then? not caused by smoking or eating a low fat high carb diet of wheat, flours, cereals and other high gi foods then? not caused for sure by lack of sunshine vitamin? or to much alcohol? or lack of exercise? or poor nutrtion overall? not caused by the stress of everyday life of hussle and bussle? humm I find this very interesting that they can say with certainty that sugar is the culprit. this is like saying driving cars causes obesity. whatevr you do always take studies and conclusions with a grain of salt.
