I came across the following article in the New York Times earlier this week, and although we aren’t in the midst of the 61 Day Challenge yet, it offers an excellent reminder of the dangers of consuming sugary drinks.
The first sentence is eye opening.
“Consumption of sugary drinks results in some 184,000 deaths worldwide each year, a new analysis found.”
Dr. Mozaffarian, Dean of the School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts, sums it up perfectly with this quote:
“There’s no need to drink these beverages. They’re causing tens of thousands of deaths, and we should eliminate them from the food supply.”
