‘One soft drink a day increases Type 2 diabetes risk by a fifth,’ The Independent warns, reporting on a European study that has examined the relationship between type 2 diabetes and sugary drinks.

- sugar-sweetened drinks, such as cola
- artificially sweetened drinks, such as diet cola
- fruit juices and nectars (diluted fruit juices that may contain sugar or sweeteners)
