A new study out of Europe using data from some 350,000 people has found that drinking one 12 ounce (341ml) of sugary soda each day can raise the risk of getting diabetes by 22 percent. Study results were published in the journal Diabetologia this week.
Researchers from the Imperial College, London had the 350,000 respondents, from 8 countries, Britain, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Netherlands, respond to questions on their diet, including consumption of sugary drinks. They tracked respondents' health over a period of time.
"Given the increase in sweet beverage consumption in Europe, clear messages on the unhealthy effect of these drinks should be given to the population," the lead author of the study, Dora Romaguera, said.
The 22 percent increase in the risk for Type2 diabetes was consistent with prior U.S. studies.
