Soda is as Dangerous as Cigarettes

Soda is Dangerous

In aĀ recently published studyĀ  in the November 2010 issue of Diabetes Care, Dr Vasanti S Malik (Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, MA)Ā  reported that consumption of just one or two sugar-sweetened beverages per day is associated with a 26% greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes and a 20% increased risk of developing metabolic syndrome.

Type 2 diabetesĀ and metabolic syndrome are both manifestations of insulin resistance and excessive carbohydrate consumption.

So for those of you who might drinkĀ 2 toĀ 3 sodas per day,Ā your risk of developing type 2 diabetesĀ is increased by 30% to 40%, which is not very different from the increased risk associated with smoking cigarette.
