Drinking too many sugary drinks would increase the risk of premature death


New international research has shown that people who drink large amounts of soda and drinks with added sugar have an increased risk of early death, especially women.

This vast study, conducted by theHarvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health with researchers from Brigham and Women & # 39; s Hospital Boston and Huazhong University in China considered data on 80,647 women (followed between 1980 and 2014) and 37,716 men (followed between 1986 and 2014). All participants were asked for questionnaires on their daily habits and their health every two years.

The results, published in the journal circulation, showed that more people consumed after taking into consideration other key dietary factors and daily habits beverages containing added sugars, plus their risk of premature death (all causes) was high.

For their study, scientists call all drinks without "sugary drinks"

Strong connections between sugary drinks and cardiovascular diseases

In detail, compared to subjects who drank less than one sweet drink a month, participants who consumed between one and four months had an increased risk of 1% early death. Those who consumed between two and six a week saw their risk increase by 6%. Drinking this type of drink once or twice a day was associated with a 14% increased risk and this risk increased to 21% for people who drank at least two sugary drinks daily.

Scientists noted that the association between risk of early death and consumption of beverages containing added sugar was greater in women. They also pointed to a strong link between sugary drinks and an increased risk of early death Due to causes of cardiovascular disease

In fact, people who consumed two or more portions of sweetened drinks had a 31% increased risk of cardiovascular disease deaths compared to those who did not like these drinks.

After considering a possible link between the consumption of artificially sweetened drinks and the risk of premature death, scientists have discovered that replacing a drink containing a natural sugar artificially sweetened drink the risk of early death was slightly lowered. However, the high consumption of artificially sweetened drinks, more than four doses per day, seemed to increase the risk of death from all causes and cardiovascular diseases.

These results are in line with previous studies that linked the consumption of sugary drinks to weight gain with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. "Our results encourage us to limit the intake of sugary drinks and replace them with other beverages, preferably water, to improve health and longevity"commented Vasanti Malik, the author of the study.

Sweetened drinks would kill 184,000 people a year

Destination Health article published July 1, 2015

Sugar present in soda donuts diabetes, obesity, tumors and cardiovascular diseases. As a result, sugary drinks are said to cause 184,000 deaths worldwide each year, according to a study published in the United States.

If we already knew the misdeeds of sucrose – the white sugar – on the organism, no figure has accurately assessed the extent of this scourge. "Throughout the world, the consumption of sugary drinks would cause 184,000 deaths each year in the adult population", say US researchers in the newspaper circulation.

To evaluate this in epidemiology, the incidence refers to the number of new cases of a disease occurring during a given period of time. An increase in incidence makes it possible for example to note … "data-image =" https://en.cdn.v5.futura-sciences.com/buildsv6/images/midioriginal/c/e/7/ce79e74ecf_50090417_graphic – incidence-laurent-mignon-wiki-dp.jpg "data-url =" / health / definitions / medecine-incidence-13469 / "data-more =" More information ">shockProfessor Dariush Mozaffarian's team at Boston University drew 62 works from 1980 to 2010 in 51 countries. In total, 611,971 patient registries were analyzed. Result, the sweet drinks (included sodas, iced tea and energy drinks) are responsible for 133,000 diabetes-related deaths, 45,000 for cardiovascular disease and 6,450 for cancer. Most of these deaths (76%) occur in low and middle income countries. The populations of Mexico (405 deaths per million inhabitants) and the United States (125) are the most affected by the impact of drinks sweet.
