The study found that those who were drinking more sugary beverages had a higher risk of death.
For the study, researchers examined data from two different studies involving almost 38,000 men and more than 80,000 women who were followed for 20 to 30 years.
The study found that the more beverages packed with sugar that folks were consuming, drinks like soda, energy drinks and sports drinks, the higher their risk for death was during the study, LiveScience reports.
The more sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) a person drank, the more risks of early death from any cause increased, according to the study.
A study led by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found that drinking more sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) could result in premature death.
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 consumed more than one sugary beverage per month but fewer than two per day seemed to experience a dose effect: the more they drank, the greater the risk. Each additional serving per day of SSBs was linked with a 10 percent increased higher risk of cardiovascular diseases-related death. If the findings of a latest study are to be believed, sugary drinks may be associated with an increased risk of death from cardiovascular diseases.
Everyone knows that sugar-sweetened beverages are not healthy.
Both studies indicate a link between artificially sweetened beverages and women's risk of death, said Yasmin Mossavar-Rahmani, associate professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Population Health at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, who was author of last month's study. While SSB consumption had been dropping in the US over the past decade, in recent years, there's been an increase in consumption among USA adults.
Artificially sweetened beverages could be used to replace sugary drinks, but high consumption of the artificially sweetened drinks should also be discouraged, the research team says.
Many studies have already connected the consumption of sugary drinks to a range of health conditions, including diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. This may have been due to what's known as "reverse causation", that is, the people may have switched to diet drinks because of their existing heart disease risks.
