Sugary drinks linked to 180K deaths worldwide.

Posted: Updated:

New research could have you thinking twice about what you drink next.

Researchers estimate that one in every one-hundred deaths is caused by sugary beverages.

The research also revealed that sugar-sweetened beverages are linked to more than 1-hundred-80-thousand obesity-related deaths worldwide each year.

The American Beverage Association dismissed the research saying it was "more about sensationalism than science."

The study revealed that among the world's 35 largest countries, Mexico had the highest death rates from sugary drinks.

The United States ranked third in the findings.
