Added Sugar, Sugar-Sweetened Beverages, and Artificially Sweetened Beverages and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease: Findings from the Women's Health Initiative and a Network Meta-Analysis of Prospective Studies

A woman's love for sugary beverages may further increase her risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

This study explored the frequency of occurrence of cardiovascular disease according to the level of consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages. Researchers monitored the sugary beverage drinking habits and prevalence of cardiovascular disease among 109,034 women over a period spanning 17.4 years. A total of 11,597 cases of cardiovascular disease was recorded during the course of the study. 

The consumption of 1 or more servings of sugar-sweetened beverages per day was observed to raise the risk of cardiovascular disease in women in this study. Data from this study showed that indulgence in sugary beverages may edge a woman on the path to developing cardiovascular disease.
