Sugar-sweetened beverages and risk of hypertension and CVD: a dose-response meta-analysis.

A surge in hypertension and coronary heart disease risk is associated with frequent consumers of sugar-sweetened beverages.

This study examined the relationship between high dietary exposure to sugar-sweetened beverages and the odds of developing hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases (CVD, such as coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke. Researchers studied the sugary beverage consumption rates of 240,729 subjects and compared the odds ratios of developing hypertension and other cardiovascular disorders in all the participants in this study.

Researchers discovered that the chances of suffering from hypertension and coronary heart disease (CHD) were higher among regular consumers of sugared beverages. However, increased intake of sugar-sweetened beverages appeared not to be related to stroke risk in this study. The findings of this study support the hypothesis that high consumers of sugary beverages may be much more prone to develop hypertension and coronary heart disease.
