A new study conducted by researchers at the Cambridge University has concluded that slim patients are at risk of developing diabetes because of sugary drinks. The 17 observational studies that have been made during the experiment all indicated that sugary drinks lead to type 2 diabetes.
Cambridge University researchers might have provided a new lead for medical experts looking to identify the factors behind Type 2 diabetes. Based on their most recent study, this disease has been observed in slim people after consuming large amounts of sugary drinks.
Generally, it has been long acknowledged that soda drinks with high levels of sugar are incredibly noxious for our health, but nobody expected to notice such negative impact on respondents. According to Fumiaki Imamura, the leader of the present study, one sugared soda drink per day has the ability to increase diabetes risks in healthy patients by 18 percent over a period of 10 years.
He has further explained that scientists from the said university have analyzed 17 past studies on the subject before they have reached this conclusion. Unfortunately, they could not provide other additional details at the end of the research because the study was only observational.
The current findings have been personalized based on people’s body mass index levels and researchers have reached the conclusion that sugary drinks are just as negative for the healthy people as they are for diabetics. Figures have shown that soda drinks with natural sugar increase diabetes risks by 18 percent even for people with normal weight.
Based on researchers’ conclusion, additional tests are required in the domain in order for scientists to be better understand this cause effect relationship.
The findings of the current research were published in the British Medical Journal, alongside with researchers’ observations.
