Soft drinks and sweetened beverages and the risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

​Regular drinking of soft drinks and artificially-sweetened beverages may up cardiovascular disease risk.

This research work was carried out to determine whether an association exists between the consumption of soft drinks and sweetened beverages and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality risk. Researchers conducted a meta-analysis on data extracted from 7 studies that examined 308,420 subjects.

The research team observed that generous intake of sugar-sweetened drinks elevated the odds of developing stroke, myocardial infarction, but not the risk of suffering from adverse vascular events and cardiovascular mortality. According to this study, frequent drinkers of artificially-sweetened beverages demonstrated an increase in the likelihood of suffering from stroke and adverse vascular events only. The results of this study support the hypothesis that high intake of sugary beverages may increase the incidence of cardiovascular disease in the general population.
