(TERRE HAUTE) - A new study revealed this week at the American Heart Association show sugar-sweetened drinks may be more dangerous than some thought.

Jaclyn Bevis of WTHI reports that the research that originated by the 2010 Global Burden of Diseases Study shows 180,000 people die annually world-wide of problems involving over-consumption of sugary beverages. In the United States, 25,000 deaths annually are linked to the drinks.

Sugar-sweetened sodas, sports drinks and fruit drinks were included in the research. Seventy-eight percent of the deaths happened in low and middle-income countries.

The cause for concern is that the drinks often add body weight which can lead to heart disease. Another problem is that the more sugar a person drinks the more insulin is used by the body. That often brings about concern for diabetes.
