Sugary Beverages may cause cardiovascular disease. Research revealed that the amount of high fructose corn syrup present in the drink is directly related to the increase of risk.
Beverages sweetened with low, medium and high amounts of high-fructose corn syrup significantly increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.
for the very first time, in University of California, the dose-dependent relationship between the quantity of sugar added in the beverages and increase in risk of cardiovascular disease is studied.
Study also considered the data of an earlier epidemiological study, in which relation of risk of cardiovascular disease and quantity of sugar consumed in daily routine was studied.
“These findings clearly indicate that humans are acutely sensitive to the harmful effects of excess dietary sugar over a broad range of consumption levels,” said Kimber Stanhope, the study’s lead author and a research scientist in the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.
In 15 days of study, 85 Participants (men and women both), were placed in four different groups.
They were asked to consume beverages sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup equivalent to 0 percent, 10 percent, 17.5 percent or 25 percent of their total daily calorie requirements.
Results revealed that risk factors increased as the dose of high-fructose corn syrup increased.
Another important factor was also noted here, that gender factor also counts, risk of cardiovascular disease was increased more in men than women.
