Excessive consumption of soft drinks each year causes the death of about 184,000 people and generates numerous health problems and obesity for millions of other people on Earth, doctors say in an article published in the journal Circulation.
"In many countries, people are dying because of the only diet - because of the sugary drinks. We all need to come together at the global level to fight for a substantial reduction, or even a ban on the use of sweetened soda," - said Dariusz Mozafarryan (Dariush Mozafarrian) from Tufts University in Boston (USA).

Mozafarryan and his colleagues some years watching how the use of different foods affect the human predisposition to cancer, diabetes, heart disease and vascular and other diseases, directly threatening the lives of people.

To expand these ties, doctors have used as their own observations and the results of the six dozen other studies that were carried out by their colleagues over the past 30 years. In total, their database has got 611 000 people from fifty countries.

Comparing the frequency of consumption of soda with a mortality rate of these people, the group Mozafarryana found that excessive consumption of sugary drinks is directly or indirectly kills about 180,000 people every year.

Most of these deaths occur in Type II diabetes and related consequences, about 45 thoUSAnd - for heart disease and blood vessels, and about 6500 - cancer. Least of all, according to local cultural and genetic reasons, are subject to the elderly Japanese, only one percent of whom die from drinking soda.

On the opposite shore of the Pacific Ocean there is the reverse situation - sugary drinks are to blame for the death of more than 30% relative to younger Mexicans. Not far from them "behind" and residents of the United States, and the situation is similar, though less critical, observed in seven other countries of Latin America and the Caribbean.

Scientists have calculated that about four hundred one million adults in Mexico are dying every year because of the consumption of soda, and the United States, the figure is 125 deaths per million inhabitants.

How can I deal with this problem? In addition to the ban sweetened drinks, Mozafarryan suggests that the expansion of production and sales of fruit juices, fruit and other less harmful sources of sugar can help reduce the problem. As recognized by scientists in many regions of the Earth such a thing would be extremely difficult to carry out because of the climatic and logistical problems.

On the other hand, if governments around the world do not take any action, then in the near future we can expect a serious medical and economic disaster, when today's young people, the main consumers of sugary drinks today reached old age and begin to experience health problems.
