Best Health - - NUTRITION -

A 2010 study of 8,495 Amer­i­cans over the age of 18 in the Jour­nal of the Amer­i­can Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion found that as sub­jects’ added­sugar in­take went up, their lev­els of HDL (good choles­terol) dropped, in­creas­ing their risk of car­dio­vas­cu­lar disease. The study also found that women in par­tic­u­lar who ate more added sugar had higher lev­els of LDL (bad choles­terol).
