Sweetened to Death

Sweetened to Death

Saw this great article/video on “Good Morning America” and thought it was relative to what I have been talking about, so I wanted to share it with you.

The average American consumes about 156 pounds (this is not a typo) of added sugar each year per capita, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

New study shows consuming processed foods with added sugar increases heart risk.

That’s troubling, especially when those statistics are coupled with the results of a new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association which says there’s a significant correlation between dietary added sugars and an increased risk for diabetes, heart attack and stroke, “Good Morning America’s” medical contributor Dr. Marie Savard said this morning on the show.

Published this week, this is the first major study to look at sugar and blood fats. It found that added sugar has adverse effects on the level of blood fats and therefore, on the heart.   To see the full article and video follow this link: Good Morning America

Here is another great video from ABC News that shows the affect of sugar on your body: How sugar effects your body


Yours in health,

Colleen.
