     According to a study done at Harvard University in which there were 5,600 girls participating, aged form 9 to 14 years, it was found that consuming large quantities of sugar from carbonated beverages leads to an increase in the presence of insulin and certain hormones associated with the early onset of puberty.

     The early onset of puberty in girls is associated with an increased risk of depression in adolescent years and breast cancer in adult years, scientists claim. Scientists also calculated that respondents who drank more than 1.5 liters of soft drinks a day got their first period 2,7 months earlier than their peers who drank 3 liters of soft drinks per week.
