Sugar-Sweetened Beverages and Risk of Metabolic Syndrome and Type 2 Diabetes.

Regular drinking of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB), such as soft drinks, fruit drinks, iced tea, energy drinks, and vitamin water drinks, may increase an individual's susceptibility to type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.

This study was carried out to determine the relationship between habitual intake of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB), such as soft drinks, fruit drinks, iced tea, energy drinks, and vitamin water drinks, and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Researchers conducted a meticulous meta-analysis on data extracted from 11 published studies.

The team of investigators discovered that a significant elevation in type 2 diabetes and metabolic risk is associated with increased consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB). Regular intake of sugar-sweetened beverages was found to increase the odds of developing type 2 diabetes by 26% in this study. The results of this study suggest that regular consumers of sugary beverages may be highly predisposed to type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
