Sugar’s New Threat

Sugary drinks may increase your risk of heart disease, especially if you’re heavy, say scientists from the University of California at Davis. In the study, over weight people who drank a fructose-sweetened beverage with a meal saw their triglyceride levels spike three times as high over 24 hours than people who drank a glucose-sweetened beverage. Triglycerides are fats in your blood, and high levels are thought to boost heart-disease risk. Your liver convert’s fructose to triglycerides, causing the spike, says study author Karen Teff, PhD. Most fruit juices also contain fructose, so dilute apple juice with equal parts of water.For those who like sweets they say they have sweet tooth. But me I don’t have one, so I decide to share this with you guys. Avoid sweets sometimes it’s not good for your health. I hope the candy and chocolate factories won’t read this.Huh
