A recent report released by Harvard health researchers have connected the consumption of sugary soft drinks and sodas with as many as 180,000 deaths each year around the world, with 25,000 of those deaths occurring in America, making it the third highest country on the list. According to the report, 133,000 of the deaths are related to diabetes, 44,000 come as a result of cardiovascular disease and 6,000 are cancer deaths. The researchers calculated the impact of obesity and diet-related deaths by measuring the quantities of sugary beverages consumed based on age and sex. Latin American and Caribbean countries had the most deaths from diabetes and East/Central Eurasia had the highest number of cardiovascular deaths. Mexico, where sugary drink consumption is the highest in the world, had 318 deaths per million adults directly related to their soda and sweetened beverage habits.
