Sugary Drinks, Diet Coke, Soda, and Fruit Juices All Increase Risk of Diabetes, Study Claims

Before this, many studies have revealed a link between sugary drinks and various diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, etc. But the latest research shows consuming one fewer sweet drink, daily, can reduce the risk of diabetes by up to 10%. Scientists have discovered that people who drink more soft drinks, including 100% fruit juices, are at a higher risk of diagnosing type 2 diabetes. To lessen the risk and combat obesity, some people opt having diet cokes or sodas. But the research, published online by the journal Diabetes Care, reveals switching for diet sodas or synthetically sweetened drinks did not offer benefits. Even more, it does not lessen the risk.

The latest study has shown that people who consume diet drinks had 18% more probability of developing type 2 diabetes. Also, people who had increased drinking sugary beverages, like squash or cola, had experienced a risk of having diabetes by 9%. The most notable aspect of the research is regarding natural sugar present in fresh juice. Researchers warn those afresh fruit juices are boosting the diabetes outbreak. Apart from all this, just three-and-a-half additional glasses of fresh orange juice can fuel the risk by 15%. Reportedly, around four million people in America have type 2 diabetes, which eventually results in stroke, visual impairment, heart diseases, etc.

During the trial, researchers from Harvard University have analyzed up to 200,000 people for more than two decades. They have discovered a rising intake of juice, and sweetened drinks have increased the risk of diabetes. Dr. Jean-Philippe Drouin-Chartier functioning as a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard University has led the study. Their effort offers advance proof revealing the health benefits linked with lessening the consumption of sugary drinks. It also includes the results of opting for other drinks like tea, coffee, or water. Scientists have discovered that if candidates drink fewer sugary drinks, they had a healthy body. Even more, experts recommend people try eating whole fruit instead of having juices.
