Sugar-Sweetened Beverages, Weight Gain, and Diabetes

JAMA. 2005;293(4):422-423. doi:10.1001/jama.293.4.422-b

To the Editor: The study by Dr Schulze and colleagues1 concluded that higher consumption of sugar-sweetened sodas and other beverages independently increases the risk of weight gain and diabetes. We were surprised that the article did not discuss or cite the results of an apparently contradictory earlier study2 that found that intake of sugars does not seem to raise the risk of type 2 diabetes. This was particularly striking since both articles share a coauthor.
