Sugary Drinks Linked to Heart Risks
WebMD Health News, November 14, 2011: Once again, sugar-sweetened beverages are on the firing line. New research shows that two or more sugary drinks a day may increase a woman’s waistline and risk of heart disease — even if she doesn’t gain weight.
In a study of more than 4,000 people aged 45 to 84, women who drank at least two sugar-sweetened beverages a day were nearly four times as likely to develop higher than normal levels of blood fats called triglycerides in their blood, compared with women who drank less than one a day.
They were also more likely to pack on belly fat. Belly fat has been linked to a number a health risks, including heart disease and diabetes.
And they were four times more likely to have abnormal blood glucose levels, indicating pre-diabetes. The risks were higher even in women of normal weight and women who didn’t gain weight.
One in two Americans drinks at least one sugary drink a day, according to the CDC. And one in 20 Americans drinks four or more a day.
A 20 oz bottle of soda contains 72 grams of sugar. It’s supposed to be 2 1/2 servings, an intake of 29 grams of sugar per serving, but most people drink the entire bottle! A sugar cube is 2 grams, so a 20 oz bottle contains 36 sugar cubes worth of sugar, as represented in this photo.
