Another Reason to Decrease Sugar

Americans consume far too many processed and packaged foods and eat a diet very high in added sugars. These added sugars put us at risk for obesity and diabetes, and now research shows that it may increase your risk of death from cardiovascular disease. A new study in JAMA Internal Medicine found that people who consumed 21% of their calories from added sugar had double the risk of mortality from cardiovascular disease, while those who consumed over 25% tripled their risk! It is important to try to limit added sugar to no more than 10% of your caloric intake, to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and to exercise in order to achieve optimal health.
