New York – Everyone knows that sugary drinks, such as fizzy drinks and some fruit juices can cause obesity, but that drinks can make you blood pressure patient too .
This revelation comes in a new U.S. medical research .
Research published in the American Journal of Cardiology revealed that there was a strong correlation between drinking sugar-sweetened drinks and elevated blood pressure.
After reviewing 12 previous research studies researchers discovered that all of the studies showed a correlation between consuming sugar-sweetened drinks and high blood pressure.
According the study, that people who drinks sugary drinks are between 26 and 70 per cent more likely to develop high blood pressure than people who do not drink them, Daily RX reports.
They also showed that teenagers who drink three or more sugar-sweetened drinks a day are 87 per cent more likely to develop high blood pressure.
The researchers made a number of suggestions as to how the drinks might increase blood pressure.
They say they can lower the levels of nitric oxide in the body which causes the blood vessels to constrict and, therefore, the blood pressure to increase.
