Study Finds That Sugary Drinks Increase Risk Of Heart Disease In Men

March 12, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. researchers who analyzed health data from nearly 43,000 men found that those who drank a 12-ounce sugary beverage every day were 20 percent more likely to experience heart disease than those who didn’t drink sugary beverages. Participants were mainly white males, aged 40-75 years, employed in a health-related profession. The researchers said the study’s findings add to the growing evidence that sugar-sweetened beverages “are detrimental to cardiovascular health.” The study found no correlation between consumption of artificially sweetened beverages and an increase risk of biomarkers for heart disease.
