Sugar sweet beverages increase chronic disease markers.

A new study, just released, has correlated the length and levels of consumption of sugar sweetened (SSB) with the presence of chronic disease biomarkers. Disease biomarkers provide a risk assessment of the potential for developing certain diseases.

The researchers used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, and examined the correlation between drinking sugar sweetened and levels of disease bio-markers from 1999-2010.

Their findings reveal that from 1999-2010 as SSB consumption decreased, the level of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) increased, low-density lipoprotein decreased, and C-reactive (CRP) decreased.

Statistical analysis revealed higher intakes of SSB were associated with lower HDL and higher CRP, independent of models with age, race/ethnicity, gender, education level and poverty income ratio adjustments.

The increase of CRP ( a produced by the liver), relates to the potential for inflammation as the level increases in response to inflammation found throughout the body.

Globally soda (fizzie drinks) consumption is a multi-billion . Previous studies have illustrated the over drinking sugar sweetened for years.

Once study demonstrated conclusively that was an elevated higher risk of Non Hodkins lymphoma in men but not in women with the consumption of regular sugar sweetened soda.

Another study demonstrated that there was a higher risk of in women not in men and a significant higher risk of stroke in both men and women.

The common denominating factor in all the prevailing studies was the consumption of high amount of regular sweetened sugar soda.
