Study links sugary drinks & death

You may want to reach for a diet soda instead of the sugary alternative.

A new report finds sugary drinks could be linked to about 180,000 deaths a year throughout the world.

The report blames sugar sweetened drinks for excess body weight.

The extra weight is linked to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer deaths.

The study only focused on adults.

Further research is needed to look at how sugary drinks affect kids.
