Sweetened Beverages Linked to Heart Disease, Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome

June 15, 2009: 09:49 AM EST
New research showing links between increasing consumption of “sweetened caloric beverages” and metabolic syndrome was to be presented at the XV International Symposium on Atherosclerosis on June 15, according to a media release. Several speakers highlighted concerns about the increased consumption of sweetened soft drinks, fruit drinks, energy drinks, vitamin and other functional beverage waters. Studies have shown that the beverages are linked to an almost 49 percent increase in the risk of coronary heart disease in women, and a significantly increased risk of diabetes, as well as the link to metabolic syndrome.
