We all know fruit is good for us, but a new study says some types may lead to a higher risk of skin cancer.

It found a 36 percent higher risk in people who ate or drank 1.6 ounce servings of citrus fruit daily.

Researchers also found people who drank juices were at a higher risk than people who ate whole fruit.
You may want to put down that sugary drink.

New research says sugary drinks might lead to nearly 200,000 adult deaths worldwide each year.

Those would be from things like diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

The study’s lead author says it shows the world must reduce or even eliminate sugary drinks from diets.
Neighborhoods with easy access to healthy foods and safe places to exercise may help people reduce their risk for type 2 diabetes.

A new study shows the risk of developing the condition was 12 percent lower in neighborhoods where you could find healthy food and 21 percent lower in places with greater opportunity for physical activity.

The study included more than 5,000 people.
