Two sugar-sweetened beverages per day associated with 43% greater risk of diabetes in women

Women who consumed two (2) or more servings of sugar-sweetened beverages per day were 43% more likely to develop diabetes during an average follow-up of 8.4 years compared to women who consumed less than one (1) serving per week according to the Women’s Health Initiative study.

Substituting one (1) serving of a

SUGAR

As sugar intake increases, the risk of dying from heart attack or stroke increases

As sugar intake increases, the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease (heart attack or stroke) increases according to a recent analysis by researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

During an average follow-up of 14.6 years, compared to the one-fifth of people consuming the least amount of added sugar:

  • the one-fifth consuming the next most amount of sugar were 7% more likely to die from cardiovascular disease
  • the one-fifth consuming the third highest amount of sugar were 18% more likely to die from cardiovascular disease
  • the one-fifth consuming the second highest amount of sugar were 38% more likely to die from cardiovascular disease
  • the one-fifth consuming the most amount of sugar were 103% more likely to die from cardiovascular disease (2X as likely to die from CVD)

This was after adjusting for age, sex, race/ethnicity as well as sociodemographic, behavioral, and clinical characteristics.

ALZHEIMER’S & DIET

People with the highest percent sugar intake were 30% more likely to have dementia

The one-fourth of people with the highest percent intake of sugar (30% of calories) were 30% more likely to have mild cognitive impairment or dementia compare to the one-fourth of people with the lowest percent sugar intake (17% of calories) according to a study from researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, USA.

“A dietary pattern with relatively high caloric intake from carbohydrates and low caloric intake from fat and proteins may increase the risk of [mild cognitive impairment] or dementia in elderly persons,” the authors of the study concluded.

REGULAR SODA

Regular soda consumption increases risk of non-Hodgkin lymphomas 1.7-fold in men

Men from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study who had a high consumption of regular sugar-sweetened soda were 1.66-times more likely to get non-Hodgkin lymphomas than men who did not consume regular soda according to a recent analysis.

Women consuming diet sodas did not show a significant increase.

(I have not seen a copy of the entire paper yet, so I don’t know what constitutes a “high consumption of regular sugar-sweetened soda”.)

"When it comes down to it, our hardwiring, our evolutionary biology that determines our survival and our energy balance, it overrides our… will in many cases, and obesity is a perfect example of that because when people get in front of a highly-palatable food environment, the brain sends the strongest signals it has for us to quickly and impulsively to eat that highly-palatable food" notes Elissa Epel from the Center for Obesity Assessment, Study and Treatment, University of California, San Francisco in the 7-part video series called “The Skinny on Obesity” (Episode 7).

Sugar consumption leads to tolerance & addiction in the brain just like nicotine and heroin, Lustig

Sugar consumption causes dopamine to be released in the pleasure center of the brain, but after 3 weeks, a tolerance builds up to this which is exactly the same thing that happens with all addictive and abused drugs including heroin, cocaine, morphine, nicotine, alcohol and cannabis notes Robert Lustig, MD, pediatric endocrinoligist from the University of California, San Francisco in the 7-part video series called “The Skinny on Obesity” (Episode 4).

This causes you to develop a tolerance to feeling good when eating it, and then feelings of withdrawal when you stop eating it.

Excess insulin blocks leptin in the brain, stores more fat and leads to weight gain, Lustig, MD

High levels of insulin, caused by eating "the industrial, global diet" which includes too much sugar, causes the body to store more calories as body fat, which starves muscles cells, and makes you feel tired and hungry, and therefore you eat more to compensate for this, leading to weight gain notes Robert Lustig, MD, pediatric endocrinoligist from the University of California, San Francisco in the 7-part video series called “The Skinny on Obesity” (Episode 3). This is the vicious cycle that is the cause of the obesity epidemic of the last 30 years notes Lustig. Read the entire article | Email this article

Fructose is a chronic, dose-dependent, liver toxin just like alcohol notes Robert Lustig MD

"Alcohol is metabolized to fat, and so is fructose, driving more liver fat then it can export, you get more insulin resistance, which drives the pancreas to make extra insulin, driving energy deposition into fat cells [increasing body fat], driving your weight gain, and the extra insulin is driving high blood pressure, driving heart disease, driving cell division which leads to cancer, driving changes in the brain that lead to dementia. Driving every single one of these diseases," notes Robert Lustig, MD, pediatric endocrinoligist from the University of California, San Francisco in a 7-part video series called "The Skinny on Obesity" (Episode 2).
