    People consuming 10% to 24.9% of calories from added sugar were 1.3 times more likely to die from cardiovascular disease (heart attack or stroke) compared to people getting less than 10% of their calories from added sugar according to a recent analysis by researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

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

    Conclusion

    Conclusion: High sugar intake associated with greater risk of dying from heart attack and stroke

    “A higher percentage of calories from added sugar is associated with significantly increased risk of CVD mortality,” the authors of the paper concluded.

    Subjects

    Subjects: data from 43,000 people

    They analyzed data from the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES, 1988-1994 [III], 1999-2004, and 2005-2010 [which included 31,147 people] for the time trend analysis and NHANES III Linked Mortality cohort (1988-2006 [which included 11,733 people]), a prospective cohort of a nationally representative sample of US adults for the association study.

    The average follow-up was 14.6 years.
