Yikes! Why keeping off those soft drinks – especially our little ones – is so important –

Cutting soft drinks from your diet — even if they’re artificially sweetened — might be one of the simplest ways to boost your health and longevity, according to a new study published this week.

The study, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, found that drinking two or more glasses of sugary or diet soft drinks per day compared to one is associated with a higher risk of early death from all causes.

For the study, around 50 researchers from the International Agency for Research on Cancer tracked more than 451,000 adults from 10 European countries — none of whom had already been diagnosed with cancer, diabetes, heart disease or stroke beforehand — for up to 19 years, making it one of the first of its kind in Europe.
