American Heart Association Says Sugar Is Bad News

The American Heart Association explains how sugar drinks and heart disease go together. A study compared men who did and did not consume sugar-sweetened beverages and risk of coronary heart disease.

Researchers followed 42,883 health professionals for a period of 22 years.  They adjusted for age, smoking, physical activity, alcohol, multivitamins, family history, diet quality, energy intake, BMI, pre-enrollment weight change and dieting.

They found that intake of sugar-sweetened beverages (and not artificially sweetened beverages) was significantly associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease and adverse changes in lipids, inflammatory factors and leptin.
