Sugary beverages linked to heart disease

Health researchers are giving us more reasons to give up regularly drinking sugary sodas, sports drinks, fruit drinks, kool-aide, etc.  Utilizing a long-term study it was discovered that men who drink one sugar-sweetened drink a day were 20% more likely than their peers to incur coronary heart disease.  The primary researcher, Dr. Frank Hu, suggested sweetened drinks should be enjoyed only sparingly.

Surgery beverages have also been linked to increased likelihood of diabetes, high blood pressure, weight gain and a variety of other chronic diseases. A couple of years back a Nurses Health Study also linked sugary drinks and heart disease for women.

You can read more about this research on ABC's News website, "One Sugary drink per day raises risk of heart disease".
