Swedish researchers analyzed the dietary habits of 25,000 adults without diabetes, cardiovascular disease or cancer. They found those consuming the most sugar-sweetened beverages also consumed significantly fewer healthy foods. High consumption of coffee was also associated with higher intakes of high-fat foods and lower intakes of breakfast cereals. These results were adjusted for potential confounding factors such as age, sex, BMI, activity and energy intake.
