We all know we should be drinking water throughout our day, but a lot of us are still grabbing a can or bottle of soda. It’s no secret that Americans like their soda.

But sugary beverages – top-selling sodas included – have come under a lot of scrutiny in the last while because they’ve been linked to numerous health concerns. But what if you knew that swapping a can of soda for water, coffee or tea could lower your risk of diabetes, would you switch?

Over the years, there has been a strong link shown between diets containing high amounts of sugar and the development of type 2 diabetes. Now researchers have uncovered that for every soda you drink, you’re actually increasing your risk of diabetes up to 18 percent.

Swap your beverage, lower your diabetes risk
The study, published in Diabetologia, recorded the beverage consumption of 25,639 U.K. residents between the ages of 40 and 79. None of the participants at the beginning of the study had diabetes. Diets and beverage consumption were recorded and particular attention was paid to the types of beverages consumed on a weekly basis.

Over the span of 11 years, by the end of the study, the researchers noted that 847 participants were diagnosed with early onset of type 2 diabetes.

The researchers concluded that with every added sugary beverage – soda, sweetened milk, artificially sweetened beverages – the increase in risk of diabetes jumped 22 percent. Furthermore, those who were more likely to develop type 2 diabetes were overweight, confirming the importance of weight management in deterring diabetes.

Concluding findings suggest that by replacing a sugary beverage with either water, coffee or tea – unsweetened, of course – could significant reduce your risk of developing diabetes.
