Put down that soda!
Put down the soda. Skip the fruit juice. Consuming just two sweetened beverages a day appears to significantly increase the risk of heart failure, a condition that occurs when the heart is too weak to pump enough blood to meet the body's needs, reports HealthDay News of a study from Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. The study found that the men who drank two or more servings of sweetened beverages a day had a 23 percent higher risk of suffering heart failure. This isn't all that surprising. Sweetened drinks have long been linked to an increased risk of stroke, type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease and hypertension. The takeaway: People who regularly consume sweetened beverages should consider reducing their consumption to lower their risk of heart failure as well as obesity and type 2 diabetes and possibly other diseases. while the study only included men, it's expected that the association between sweetened beverages and an increased risk of heart failure would also apply to women.
