Do the diabetes math

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that eating too much sugar is bad for you. Or that a diet overloaded with carb-heavy sugary processed foods can lead to insulin resistance and eventually send you down the path to diabetes.

But now a new study, published in the journal Diabetologia, really drives the sugar-spiked point home. According to UK researchers from Imperial College London, just one 12-ounce sugary drink a day... like a can of soda... may cause insulin resistance, and spike your risk for diabetes by a staggering 22 percent.

The take away is obvious here... give up the sugary drinks and replace them with something healthier like green tea or filtered water. But don't make the mistake of turning to diet soda instead. If you missed my warning about diet drinks earlier this year click here.
