Drinking two or more sodas a day can bring you ‘fatal’ consequences

The study has been based on 452,000 men and women from 10 European countries and has been conducted by the International Agency for Research on Cancer in France and published in the journal ‘JAMA Internal Medicine’.

Research indicates that drinking two or more glasses per day (compared to less than one glass per month) of soft drinks, whether sugary or artificially sweetened, is linked to an increased risk of death from all causes during an average follow-up of 16 years in which 41,693 deaths occurred.

The study group included participants from Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

The consumption of soft drinks was analyzed in food questionnaires or in interviews at the beginning of the study between 1992 and 2000.

Also among the findings was an increased risk of death from circulatory diseases associated with the consumption of two or more vessels per day, and an increased risk of death from digestive diseases.

In contrast, no association was observed between soda consumption and general cancer death.

The limitations of the study include its observational design, which makes causal inferences impossible, and there was only a single assessment of soda consumption.

The authors suggest that the findings support public health initiatives to limit the consumption of soft drinks.
