Sugar-sweetened beverages increases the risk of hypertension among children and adolescence: a systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis

Children and adolescents who are regular consumers of sugar-sweetened beverages may have a high likelihood of being diagnosed with hypertension.

This study assessed how frequent sugar-sweetened beverage consumption affects blood pressure in children and adolescents by means of a meta-analysis. Data extracted from 93,873 children and adolescents who took part in 14 published studies were considered eligible for this study. 

Researchers discovered that children and adolescents who enjoyed consuming sugary beverages had a high propensity to suffer from a rise in systolic blood pressure and eventually hypertension. This study offered additional evidence that preference for sugar-sweetened beverages may result in hypertension in children and adolescents.
