An interesting study out of Canada may upset a lot of assumptions about sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) and obesity. After following over 10,000 adolescents in three regions, researchers found no correlation between SSB consumption and Body Mass Index (BMI).

(If you would like to read a parody of studies about SSBs, see Teddy Wayne’s “The Sacharine Method” in the January 3, 2004 The New Yorker magazine.)
