How Many People Have Died of Drinking Soda?

Harvard researchers have found that over-consumption of sodas and sugary drinks may be linked to 180,000 worldwide deaths a year. The report, released Tuesday, also notes the studied beverages contribute to about 25,000 American deaths a year, placing the country third overall.

The report, unveiled during an American Heart Association meeting, links sugar-sweetened beverages to "133,000 diabetes deaths, 44,000 deaths from cardiovascular diseases and 6,000 cancer deaths" a year. The study's co-author, Gitanjali Singh, also recommended regulations to curb the intake of sugary drinks, specifying that "taxing sugary drinks in the same way as cigarettes, or limiting advertising or access, may help reduce usage."*
