Does soda ultimately lead to diabetes ?

Well, I ve heard for the longest time that drinking too much soda can lead to diabetes, and while this may be true, I m questioning rather it s just that simple. I read somewhere on the Internet that you can decrease your chances of getting diabetes, even if you drink a lot of caffeine, if you maintain a healthy life style by working out, etc. They also said that just because you drink a lot of sweetened contents, doesn t ultimately mean that you re going to end up with diabetes. So, my question is. Can anyone back up these proofs. My second question is, how come some people can drink tons of soda and never develop diabetes while others do?

Drinks with artificial sweeteners are to be avoided or restricted. the issue should not directly relate to the Diabetes to the consumption of more sodas. Always the risk factors multiply as you keep having un helathy habits. Drinking of soda is relatively a unhealthy habit I suppose. I cannot prove it though but I am sure it is. Lot of caffeine reduces the Diabetes but it increases the hypertension and other risk. so altogether the heart risk remains the same which is equivalent to having Diabetes. Any one else?
