Reducing Sugary Drink Intake Lowers Blood Pressure

Leave a comment

Over consumption of high sugar soft drinks may cause obesity, insulin resistance and high blood pressure. A study from the Louisiana State University Health Science Centre found that overweight people who drank one less high sugar beverage per day during an 18 month period showed a drop in systolic and diastolic pressure of nearly 2mmHg. Researchers speculated that cutting out two drinks per day might have an even greater effect. Scientists disagree on the negative health effects of consuming high sugar beverages.
