More bad news for sugar fiends. A study published in the British Journal of Medicine found that slurping down just one sugary beverage per day can boost a person’s risk for Type 2 diabetes by up to 18 percent. And whether the person was obese or not didn’t matter.
Researchers from the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine came to their conclusion after looking at data from 17 other previously published studies and cross-examined the link between sugary drinks and diabetes risk. Above all, what this tells us is that instead of dumping truckloads of sugar into your morning coffee, guzzling soda or other sweetened beverages like iced tea at lunch, we should probably drink water. Which, we’re guessing, is contaminated with mercury and other disgusting toxins that erode your organs. We’re kidding. You probably own a Brita.
