Just one can a day will boost your disease risk

Listen up, soda slurpers: If you're healthy today, thank your lucky stars. Then, give up that soda habit ASAP.

If you don't, those stars will eventually dim and your luck will run out -- because soda isn't just kinda-maybe-sorta bad for you. It'll wreck your health faster than Lady Gaga music will wreck your sanity.

You'd have to be comatose -- or maybe a soda company boss -- not to know that already. But just in case you're looking for more proof this stuff is bad news in a bottle, yet another new study shows how quickly a steady soda habit can turn into diabetes.

A single, 21-ounce can of soda a day, could raise your risk of this devastating disease by 22 percent when compared to drinking one soda a month or (even better) none at all.

That's just the starting point, mind you. The more you drink, the higher your risk could become.

I don't know about you, but I've seen people drink two 16-ounce bottles of soda just with lunch -- which could cause their risk of diabetes to skyrocket even before the dinner bell rings.

And if you're fond of Super Big Gulps, you might want to start stocking up on insulin now. You'll need it eventually.

Of course, this isn't the first study to make the link. It's not even the second or the third.

So many studies have linked soda to diabetes that I've lost count. More importantly, I don't think you can find a single truly independent study -- a study NOT conducted with soda industry money -- that DOESN'T find a connection.

The reason, if it's not obvious enough, is the sugar. But switching to sugar-free sodas won't help because artificial sweeteners have also been linked to diabetes (among other things).

For the full, uncensored story on the most common artificial sweetener of all...and to learn how you can get access to even more of the REAL truth behind the bought and paid for mainstream news... be sure to read this shocking special report.

Try coffee or tea to quench your own thirst, and feel free to have a little booze each day. Instead of risks, you'll get benefits -- and better taste, too.
