sugary drinksMany people consume much more sugar than they think they do. We don’t think of ketchup as a sugary condiment. But that is just one of the many sugary foods items that fill many people’s kitchen cupboards.

Many people do not realize that they are addicted to sugar and even if they are not, they consume it the way that an addict would. A good example is someone who drinks tea or coffee with sugar everyday. If you removed the sugar from either beverage, they probably would not consume it, but they don’t feel like they can not get through a day without said beverage.

As many as 180,000 [email protected] around the world are linked with sugary drink consumption, according to new research presented at a meeting of the American Heart Association.

Specifically, sugar-sweetened drinks — including sodas, sports drinks and fruit drinks — are linked with 133,000 [email protected] from diabetes, 6,000 deaths from cancer, and 44,000 deaths from heart disease.

In the United States specifically, “our research shows that about 25,000 [email protected] in 2010 were linked to drinking sugar-sweetened beverages,” study researcher Gitanjali M. Singh, Ph.D., who is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health, said in a statement.

The findings are based on 2010 data from the Global Burden of Diseases study on sugar-sweetened drink intake in countries around the world. Different parts of the world were affected in different ways by sugary drinks — for example, Latin American and Caribbean countries seemed to have the most diabetes-related deaths associated with sugary drinks, with 38,000 deaths. Meanwhile, heart [email protected] associated with sugary drink consumption were highest in East and Central Europe/Asia, with 11,000 [email protected]

    People forget or do not know that sugar (a plant) is a drug and so is coffee. So both are addictive! Sugar is the number one drug of choice, and one killer! Great Post!

Is enough sugar and salt in our food , you donot need any more.Fast food places are peddlers of death and so are places that peddle so called soft drinks.Drink plenty of boiled on the stove water.The body itself is two thirds water.The Earth itself is two thirds water.

    Afrikans in USA are their own worst enemies, they allow themselves to be hoodwoinked everytime,, for the sake of me I cannot see how this happens when every corner and nook and cranny you go a church or a mosque is located.. this must be where many people hide their money as with so many places of worship and places of god availiable, surely matters to do with health, i.e. diet and how people dress, wear other nations DNA and feel big about it – is beyond my comprehension, did enslavement do so much colattaral damage to their minds…?
    When you allow other nations to cook for you and your family you are doomed to suffer the consquences of suicide – killing self and family.

    When you do not consume what you produce or produce what you consume you place not only yourself but also your posterity in great peril- in other words 6 feet under ground if you are lucky.

    keep eating and drinking – looks like like i should open a business in the funeral business- but heh its proable best to get another nation to front it… wow is this what Dr Martin Luther King Malcome X Marcus Garvey was preaching all the time?? What at shame how self inflicted injury can turnAfrikans into victimhood, after all we did not built the pyramids, invented the ironing board traffic lights, blood bank etc
