Association of Sugar-Sweetened Beverages and Cardiovascular Diseases Mortality in a Large Young Cohort of Nearly 300,000 Adults (Age 20-39)

Preference for sugar-sweetened beverages may increase death rates from cardiovascular disease in young men and women.

This study focused on the relationship between long-term consumption of sugared beverages and a young adult's risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. Researchers matched sugary beverage intake levels with mortality records from nearly 300,000 men and women aged 20-39 years. 

Researchers noted that cardiovascular mortality risk rose by 50% among participants who reported consuming 2 or more servings of sugar-sweetened beverage per day. The results of this study support the formulation of public policy aimed at discouraging the ingestion of sugary beverages in order to reduce death toll from cardiovascular disease in younger adults.
