BOSTON (WKOW) -- New research could have you thinking twice about what you drink next.
Researchers estimate that one in every 100 deaths is caused by sugary beverages. The research also revealed that sugar-sweetened beverages are linked to more than 180,000 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.
