Subject: Studies Linked to Soda Industry Mask Health Risks
Can you trust the studies that are out there concerning soda and the health risks that it brings when consumed? Perhaps they're telling you the truth, but not the whole truth. Some are saying that the health risks of soda are being masked when the results are released to the public. What should you know?
- Researchers from the university of california, san francisco, looked at studies of soft drink consumption and its relationship to obesity and diabetes published between 2001 and 2016.
- they found about 60 studies that were fairly rigourous in their methalodgy.
- when the studies were led by independent researchers, they showed a clear link between soda consumption and obesity or metabolic disease.
"The notion that sugary drinks play a major role in the spread of obesity has prompted authorities and health officials to increasingly call for soda taxes and similar measures aimed at curbing their consumption."
