There is a problem with too much soda, and a solution.
That is the conclusion of a new study published in the journal American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
The study analyzed the impact of two different soda consumption methods: regular and mixed.
The researchers analyzed the beverage consumption habits of 1,000 U.S. adults, and compared the results with the results of a study conducted a few years ago.
The results showed that Americans who drank more than 10 glasses of soda a day consumed nearly 40% more soda than those who drank fewer than 10.
In other words, people who drank too much were at a higher risk of drinking, on average, more than three times as much soda as people who didn’t drink at all.
This is an important finding, says Dr. James E. Miller, who led the study.
“We can’t afford not to have a discussion about the relationship between drinking and cancer.”
The researchers believe that the results are significant because it shows that people who drink a significant amount of soda are likely to be drinking at a high risk of cancer.
This could be a cause for concern if the amount of sodas consumed is high enough to cause cancer, he says.
In the study, the researchers also looked at the relationship of soda consumption to certain health behaviors.
People who drank about three drinks a day were more likely to smoke, drink alcohol and take drugs, such as prescription drugs.
And while the results were not statistically significant, the participants who drank less than three drinks per day had lower BMI and waist circumference than the other groups.
The findings also showed that people whose blood sugar was elevated by over 300 milligrams per deciliter were at an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
These associations were stronger for women than men.
Dr. Miller says this is because women tend to have lower blood sugar and have a higher number of insulin-producing cells in their pancreas.
These insulin-secreting cells are responsible for the production of insulin, which is needed to keep blood sugar within safe levels.
“If we want to prevent diabetes, we have to control blood sugar,” he says, adding that he believes the higher risk for diabetes in women could be because they are more likely than men to be overweight.
A higher risk also may be associated with smoking, which increases the risk of heart disease.
Dr Miller says that people with diabetes may have lower HDL cholesterol, which protects against cardiovascular disease.
This is a factor in the increased risk for Type 2 diabetes, he adds.
The new findings are not yet conclusive.
“It is still very much a hypothesis,” Dr. Miller adds.
He is hopeful that the findings will provide more insight into the relationship.
“If we can find a causal relationship between consumption and cancer, that would be the most important discovery we’ve made.”
The study was funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
