Are sugary drinks and rheumatoid arthritis linked?

4th November 2013

A new study has linked the risk of rheumatoid arthritis to drinking sugary drinks.


Sugary drinks have been linked by other studies to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, among other health problems.

A researcher at Harvard School of Public Health, Yang Hu, conducted the study and said "We found an association only for sugar-sweetened beverages".

Yang Hu also said the link doesn't mean sodas can cause rheumatoid arthritis, just could boost the risk linked with other lifestyle choices.
