A new study is now suggesting that just one 12 ounce serving of a sugar-sweetened beverage can raise your risk.
To conduct the study, researchers analyzed 15 years of data on soda pop consumption that included more than 27,000 people from seven European countries.
Their findings? More than 40 percent developed type 2 diabetes. Additionally, those who said they drank at least one soda or some other sweet drink each day showing an 18 percent higher risk of developing the disease. When other physical factors, like body weight and body mass index weren’t controlled for, the risk rose to 22 percent.
