Sugary soft drinks make osteoarthritis worse

People suffering from osteoarthritis should keep off the sugary soft drinks-they only make the problem worse

People suffering from osteoarthritis should keep off the sugary soft drinks-they only make the problem worse.
The drinks speed the progress of the disease, especially if the arthritis is attacking the knee joints, researchers have discovered after assessing the diets and lifestyles of 2,149 people with osteoarthritis, where cartilage in the knee joint breaks down.
Drinking just one sugary soft drink a day seems to quicken the disease and make the symptoms worse, even in men who are not overweight.
Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital discovered that the more drinks the people had, the worse their symptoms became.
