Study Claims Sugary Drinks Kill 184,000 People Every Year

Beware- Sugary drinks can be fatal.
A new study by Tufts University says that sugary drinks cause 184,000 deaths worldwide annually, including 25,000 deaths in the United States.
The finding is revised estimate of numbers first presented at a scientific meeting in 2013. The new study represents a total of deaths from diabetes, heart disease and cancer that scientists say can be directly attributed to the consumption of sweetened sodas, fruit drinks, sports/energy drinks and iced teas.
The numbers imply that sugary drinks can cause as many deaths each year as the flu.
The study senior author says "It should be a global priority to substantially reduce or eliminate sugar-sweetened beverages from the diet,"
