Danger of Sugary Drinks

Published Mar 25, 2013 by Personal Trainer Network

More than 180,000 deaths worldwide were linked to a high intake of sugary drinks, a new study estimates, including 25,000 deaths in the United States. That included more than 130,000 from diabetes, about 45,000 from heart disease and stroke, and 4,600 from various cancers.
They found a correlation between high consumption and deaths from heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers.
Everyone should be limiting added sugar, empty calories -from drinks and food. In U.S., most of these added sugar calories in people's diets is from drinks.
Therefore, do your best to stay away from sugar-sweetened beverages, replacing even one sugary drink a day with water can cut a significant amount of calories.
Sodas are not the only culprit though, most fruit juices, often thought as healthful are loaded with sugar as well.
