Sugar-sweetened beverages consumption and the risk of depression: A meta-analysis of observational studies.

​The odds of suffering from depression may be tilted against habitual drinkers of sugar-sweetened beverages.

​This study investigated how the intake of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) affects an individual's chances of suffering from depression. Researchers compiled data from 10 studies that assessed the link between the consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages and the risk of depression. 

Researchers observed that depression occurred with greater frequency among regular consumers of sugar-sweetened beverages compared to non-consumers of these types of beverages. "This meta-analysis indicates that SSBs consumption might be associated with a modestly higher risk of depression," concluded the authors.
