Study Shows Sugar Linked to Heart Attacks.
Did you know?
*Too much added sugar doesn’t just make us fat. It can also make us sick.
*Growing scientific evidence shows that eating too much added sugar over time is linked to health problems like heart disease.
*Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. Drinking just one soda a day can increase your risk by 1/3.
*Long-term, excessive consumption of added sugar can also disrupt your body’s natural homonal balance, creating a condition caalled metabolic syndrome, which is linked to many forms of chronic disease. “Sugar Belly” (excess fat around your midsection) is one possible sign that you might have metabolic syndrome.
*Liquid sugar, like that in soda, is the largest source of added sugar in the American diet (36%).
*The way your body processes liquid sugar is different than the way it processes sugar in foods, especially those containing fiber. Too much added sugar from soda can overload critical organs over time, leading to serious diseases.
*When you consume sugar as a beverage, you don’t feel as full. It’s easy to down 9 teaspoons of sugar in a single 12-oz. soda. The American Heart Association recommends no more than 6 teaspoons per day for women, and 9 per day for men.
*Too much added sugar from soda can overload critical organs over time, leading to serious diseases.
*There are at least 61 names for added sugar on food labels.
*Fructose is a common type of sugar found in soda. Too much fructose can damage your liver, just like too much alcohol.
