Sugary Drinks May Increase Heart, Diabetes Risk In Women, Even Of Normal Weight

Everyone should be wary of sugary drinks….

“Women who drank more than two sugar-sweetened drinks a day had increasing waist sizes, but weren’t necessarily gaining weight. These women also developed high triglycerides, and women with normal blood glucose levels more frequently went from having a low risk to a high risk of developing diabetes over time.”


(Sugar-sweetened drinks includes beverages such as carbonated sodas or flavored waters with added sugar.)


“Most people assume that individuals who consume a lot of sugar-sweetened drinks have an increase in obesity, which in turn, increases their risk for heart disease and diabetes. Although this does occur, this study showed that risk factors for heart disease and stroke developed even when the women didn’t gain weight,” she added.
