Drinking sugary beverages linked with early death

The more sugary drinks you consume, the more likely you are to die early, according to a new study.

But now, a new study finds that sugar-sweetened beverages are tied to an increased risk of early death.

Also two to six per week with a six per cent increase; one to two per day with a 14 per cent increase, and two or more per day with a 21 per cent increase.

They found that carbonated and non-carbonated soft drinks, fruit drinks, energy drinks, and sports drinks are the single largest source of added sugar in the US diet.

In the study, published today (March 18) in the journal Circulation, researchers analyzed information from more than 80,000 women and 37,000 men in the health profession who were followed for about three decades.

The risk of death was lowered if people replaced their sugary drinks with beverages sweetened with artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, saccharin and sucralose, but the decrease was slight.

Those who drank two or more servings per day of SSBs had a 31 per cent higher risk of early death from cardiovascular diseases.

"The big picture is really starting to emerge", the study's lead author Vasanti Malik told CNBC, which noted that a person's risk of dying from cardiovascular disease rises 10% for every extra sugary drink the person consumes.

The researchers also examined the effects of artificially sweetened beverages, considered by many to be a safer alternative to sugary drinks. But they also found a high intake of artificially-sweetened drinks (four or more per day) was linked to a slightly increased risk of overall and cardiovascular-related death among women, so they cautioned against overimbibing those types of drinks.

"It is likely study subjects were already at a greater risk for these conditions and chose low-calorie sweetened beverages to manage their calorie and sugar intake, as these products are proven safe and beneficial for those managing their weight and blood glucose levels", he said in a statement.

The researchers say their work supports efforts of politicians and others looking to limit the consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages. We don't think anyone should overconsume sugar, that's why we're working to reduce the sugar people consume from beverages across the country.
