Sugar and artificially sweetened soda consumption linked to hypertension: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

​Regular consumers of sugar and artificially-sweetened soda may be highly predisposed to hypertension.

​This study examined the relationship between habitual intake of sugar and artificially-sweetened soda and the odds of developing hypertension using a meta-analytic approach. Data extracted from eight studies were analyzed in this meta-analysis.

Researchers discovered that high consumption of sugar and artificially-sweetened soda increased the risk of developing hypertension. The results of this study show that regular drinkers of sweetened soda may have a high tendency of suffering from hypertension.
