A UK study has found a link between drinking one can of sugar-sweetened drink a day and a 22 per cent increase in incidence of diabetes.

Following previous research proving a link between soda and obesity and diabetes, researchers from Imperial College, London, wanted to determine whether a similar link existed in Europe.

Data pertaining to consumption of juices and soda and incidence of type 2 diabetes from 350,000 study participants from the UK, Italy, Spain, Germany, Denmark, France, Sweden and the Netherlands was analysed.

The study found that daily consumption of 336ml (one can) of sugar-sweetened soda elevated the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes by 22 per cent. After accounting for BMI and total energy intake, this dropped to 18 per cent.

A link was also found between artificially sweetened soda and diabetes risk, but after accounting for BMI, this link ceased to exist. No significant link was found between nectar or pure fruit juice consumption and diabetes.
