Tthe University of California, San Francisco published a report detailing the relationship between sugary drink consumption and sleep loss, revealing that not getting enough rest is one reason why people drink unhealthy amounts of sugar.
The World Health Organization has urged countries to raise the tax on sugary drinks to combat obesity, diabetes and tooth decay. The WHO believes that lowering consumption of sodas, sports drinks, juices, etc., is an effective way to minimize obesity and diabetes cases.
A cup of coffee in the morning, a few sweets to start your day with, fruit juice for a healthy living, tea breaks during work -- they seem quite normal to our routine. Unfortunately, these are times when we are consuming sugar, which has recently been identified as a drug.
New research shows that you can cut your risk for developing diabetes by between 14 and 25 percent just by replacing the daily consumption of one serving of a sugary drink with either water, or unsweetened tea or coffee.
Sugary drinks increase the risk of getting heart disease, even when consumed for just two weeks by young, healthy men and women.
