  • Soda Hazards

New research may have you thinking twice before you pop open another can of soda. The study of more than 90,000 women found those who drank at least one sugar-sweetened soda a day were 85% more likely to develop Type 2 Diabetes than those who drank less, not to mention the weight gain that comes from regular soda consumption which is in itself a risk for diabetes. While the study focused on women, health experts say the findings really apply to anybody.

"I don't think this is a situation that's gender related as it is a simple equation between the number of calories you take in and those you burn. Within a standard 8,10,20 ounce of soda, there are up to 150-200 calories," explains Dr. Vincent Dennis from the Cleveland Clinic

The soda diabetes study was conducted by Harvard School of Public Health.
