A glass of water reduces the risk of diabetes!
The study, published in the journal “Diabetics”,examined the connection between the consumption of sugary drinks with the risk of developing diabetes type 2.
In the analysis we used detailed data on dietary habits in about 25,000 men and women aged 40 to 79 who participated in the extensive British epidemiological study.
The subjects were followed for 11 years and during that time of them 847 developed diabetes.
The results showed that the increased risk of diabetes is linked to frequent consumption of sugar-sweetened soft drinks and dairy drinks and soft drinks with artificial sweeteners.
In contrast, the intake of fruit juices, sweetened tea and coffee did not contribute to increased risk.
Experts have estimated that replacing one serving of sugar-sweetened soft drinks and dairy drinks with water, unsweetened tea or coffee, can lower the risk of diabetes by 14 to 25 percent.
It was also noted that the replacement of sugar sweetened drinks with those containing artificial sweeteners do not contribute to reducing the risk of diabetes.
