The Dietary Guidelines recommend limiting dietary intake of added sugars, in part, by avoiding sugar-sweetened beverages because of their known association with poor health outcomes, including weight gain, type 2 diabetes, high BP & heart diseases. A variety of other beverages, including alcohol, coffee, and fruit juice, have also been related to these health outcomes. Health promotion messages often focus on restricting selected unhealthy beverage choices, but there is a lack of comprehensive information about the health implications of the wide range of beverage options.

Higher consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages correlated with an increased risk for subsequent chronic kidney disease, according to a recently published research study.
