Sodas Linked to Stroke

submitted by: admin on 10/14/2013

The April of 2012 publication of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported that a greater consumption of sugar-sweetened and low calorie sodas is linked to a higher risk for stroke. Soft drinks have been associated with weight gain, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, gout and coronary artery disease. Those people consuming the most soft drinks had the worst overall diets as well. In contrast, coffee was associated with a lower risk for stroke. High fructose corn syrup is worse than sugar in that it increases insulin resistance and leads to weight gain and a fatty liver.
