American Heart Association Says Sugar Is Bad News
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.
