Can Sugary Drinks Really Kill Us?

We know that sugary drinks such as soda and fruit juice can make us fat, but according to a new report, they can actually kill us. The World Health Organization found that 185,000 deaths worldwide, including 25,000 in the U.S., were due to obesity complications from sweet drink consumption, says USA Today. Those complications included certain cancers, diabetes and heart disease.
