Sugary drink deaths are on the rise around the world. A new report, though, has sugary deaths in the U.S. ranking third in the entire world. According to a report from Tuesday (March 19), the research for this study was conducted in 187 countries. The results certainly don't look very good, especially when the figures within the U.S. alone are being examined.
The extensive process used to determine the role that sugar-sweetened drinks can play in the risk of mortality, researchers combined several sources of data. That included a WHO study on the global burden of disease. An analysis was also done on how many of these sugary beverages were consumed by people of both sexes and various age groups. The end result was an estimation that as many as 184,000 deaths in 2010 around the world could be attributed to it.
Breaking down those numbers, the study stated that the intake of the sugary drinks got linked to 133,000 deaths from diabetes, 44,000 deaths from cardiovascular diseases, and 6,000 cancer deaths. As for the United State alone, 25,000 sugary drink deaths have been reported in this study. While these are just preliminary numbers released from a study that hasn't been published yet, it can certainly make readers think twice about consuming too many of these beverages.
