Soft Drinks – Modern Day Poison?


Drinking one (or one extra)* 12oz serving size of sugar-sweetened soft drink a day can be enough to increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 22%, a new study suggests. But a new study actually quantifies how much sugar-sweetened beverages increase your risk—and suggests that cutting out just a single sugary soda or sweetened milk product each day can substantially reduce your risk for diabetes. Norway has an excise tax on refined sugar products, including soft drinks, at 7.05 kroner (RM3.70) per kg. The association between artificially sweetened drinks or fruit juice and type 2 diabetes was less evident. For the study, they recruited 25,639 adults in the UK, aged between 40 and 79 and recorded their beverage consumption. A global market database suggests that sales of soft drinks in India have increased by 13 per cent year-on-year since 1998. The result of overindulging in simple sugar is raised insulin levels.

However, we can take hope in the fact that such a large study has confirmed what we’ve been saying all along: fructose, compared to other sugars, is uniquely bad for your body. “I love my insulin pump so much!” she says. Last year, 24,000 people with diabetes died early from causes that could have been prevented. Research published in 2011 by the University of Bristol suggests that drinking soda can actually trigger sweet cravings by dulling your sensitivity to sweet tastes, resulting in a vicious cycle of eating sweet foods and drinks [3]
