Cola drinks cause common pregnancy complication

One of the most common complications in pregnancy may be caused by drinking too many sugary cola drinks, a new study has discovered.

Gestational diabetes (GDM) may be triggered by drinking five or more cola drinks a week while pregnant. Women who did are 22 per cent more likely to develop the complication compared with those who drank a cola drink less than once a month.

Researchers made the discovery when they analysed the health profiles of 13,475 women who participated in the Nurses' Health Study.

The complication increases the risk of type II diabetes after pregnancy, and children of mothers with GDM are also more likely to be obese, glucose intolerant and to suffer from early onset diabetes.
