Diabetes (Definition)

Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food. Insulin is a type of hormone that removes the glucose from the blood and moves it into the cells to provide them with energy. There are two different types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells. Type 2 diabetes, which is commonly associated with obesity, is when the body is either resistant to the effects of insulin or when the body does not produce enough insulin.

I'm just wondering, if you drink one ore two sodas a day will you develop kidney stones or/and diabetes?

I'm just wondering, if you drink one ore two sodas a day will you develop kidney stones or/and diabetes?

Much greater chance: Sodas have extremely high levels of sugar (esp. High fructose corn syrup from gmo's) & if "diet" have nutrasweet, which is even more toxic! anyone who has any interest in being healthy should hardly ever drink this poison! the acidity worsens risk of kidney stones. Just 1 soda a day increases diabetes risk by 22%. Try kombucha instead! see http://texasfarmersmarket.Org/the-hazards-of-drinking-soda. ...Read more
