Approximately 37,000 men and 80,000 women from the health profession were followed by Harvard researchers for close to three decades to complete the study.
Findings stem from analysis of 2 large prospective cohorts of adults which indicates the link between sugar sweetened beverage consumption and increased mortality risk was stronger among women than in men. In fact, the study found that replacing one SSB per day with a diet drink actually reduced the risk of early death.
Frequent consumption of sugary drinks such as sodas, sports drinks and juice is linked to an increased risk of premature death from cardiovascular disease and, to a lesser extent, from cancer, according to new research.
Among both men and women, there was a modest link between SSB consumption and early death risk from cancer.Читайте также: President Trump praises GOP senators who voted against disapproval resolution
Drinking just one fizzy drink a day significantly increases your risk of heart disease, a new study has revealed.
In a statement regarding the study, the American Beverage Association (ABA) said that it considers soft drinks "safe to consume as part of a balanced diet", and that the sugar used in the beverages is the same as sugar used in other food products. Researchers said that they were the single largest source of added sugar in the U.S. diet. For women, their risk increased by 25 percent, while the risk for men was up 12 percent. "There's no downside to cutting down on sugar-sweetened beverages", she says.
Just a couple of cans each day is also enough to increase the overall risk of a premature death by more than a fifth.
"The big picture is really starting to emerge", the study's lead author Vasanti Malik told CNBC, which noted that a person's risk of dying from cardiovascular disease rises 10% for every extra sugary drink the person consumes. That's because among heavy consumers of sugary drinks, substituting one artificially sweetened drink per day was tied to a slight reduction in the risk of early death. "The results also provide further support for policies to limit marketing of sugary beverages to children and adolescents and for implementing soda taxes because the current price of sugary beverages does not include the high costs of treating the consequences", said Walter Willett, professor of epidemiology and nutrition.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
