Sugary Drinks

As New York City's mayor battles for a ban on large-sized sugary drinks, a new study finds that they may have some deadly consequences.

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports in today's "Housecall for Health":

More bad news for those who like their drinks sweet: Sugary beverages may contribute to nearly 200,000 deaths worldwide.  Research from Harvard says it's mainly due to the role in the rising number of Type-II diabetes.

But experts caution the study found only an association, and can't prove that sugar-sweetened beverages caused these deaths.  The drinks are often just part of a bad diet that contributes to poor health.
