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.

Color contract is unreadable on my cellphone on this web page.

Hello John,

I would love to understand more the problem that you are reporting. Would you be willing to give me some more details and possibly clarify what you mean by "Color contract"?

What type of phone are you using? What is the problem or inconvenience?

Thank you for contacting us.

I'm guessing it is "color contrast". Hopefully, John will let you know which areas of the page are causing him problems.

Thank you. Yes, I figured he might mean the color contrast. I wish I could see what he was seeing. And, would love to know the browser and operating system, etc... I sure don't want the page to be difficult to see so am eager to hear what John has to share. :-)

I just received an email from John with a screenshot of the problem. And, some screenshots of his phone settings. And, it is something that I have seen before. The issue is that sometimes when I update software on the site the server still caches the older files that have just been changed. I saw that Dr. Carney on her desktop computer had a similar issue. So, I removed all files from the server cache. I then cleared all files from her web browser cache. The dark colored background then disappeared and the site looks good again.

Many thanks to John for sending me the images!

Now i will ask him to try to clear the 'history' of the web browser on his telephone and I expect things will start looking normal again for him. At least I sure hope they will. :-)
