A new study links sugar-sweetened beverages to type-2 diabetes.

Researchers at Tufts University analyzed more than 1,600 middle-aged adults.

Those who regularly consumed sugar-sweetened beverages had a 46-percent higher risk of later developing pre-diabetes. However, no link was found with diet sodas. 

More research is needed to prove if a link between diabetes and sugary drinks exist.
