Sugary Drinks Often Part of Overall Poor Diet

Previous research has linked high consumption of sugary drinks with development of type 2 diabetes. This new finding suggests a more complicated scenario.

"However, our results indicate that the associations previously seen with sugar-sweetened beverages might be due to ... individuals consuming a lot of these beverages also have a diet low in healthy foods, which in combination give associations with several chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes.

" The study involved more than 25,000 Swedes between the ages of 45 and 74. The volunteers were interviewed about their food and beverage intake.

Sticking to a diet requires self-control and a willingness to forgo present pleasures for future benefits.

People who regularly drink from cans and plastic bottles may want to reconsider: A new study shows that a common chemical in the containers can seep into beverages and raise blood pressure within a few hours.

BPA in Cans and Plastic Bottles Linked to Quick Rise in Blood Pressure

The research raises new concerns about the chemical bisphenol A, or BPA, which is widely found in plastic bottles, plastic packaging and the linings of food and beverage cans. Chronic exposure to BPA, as it is commonly known, has been associated with heart disease, cancer and other health problems. But the new study is among the first to show that a single exposure to the chemical can have a direct and fairly immediate impact on cardiovascular health. The study found that when people drank soy milk from a can, the levels of BPA in their urine rose dramatically within two hours – and so did their blood pressure.

But on days when they drank the same beverage from glass bottles, which don’t use BPA linings, there was no significant change in their BPA levels or blood pressure.
