Fizzy Drinks Increase Your Risk Of Heart Disease By 23 Percent

Drinking just over one can of sugary drink a day increases the risk of heart diseases, says a team of researchers.

Drinking a can of fizzy drink a day can raise your risk of heart failure by 23 percent, said researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm.

A further analysis, excluding people diagnosed with heart failure in the first five years, showed the link still held true.

The researchers warned that because it was an observational study, no conclusion could be drawn to say sweetened drinks definitely caused heart failure.

They stressed that the study only involved older white men and the findings may not be applicable to younger age groups, women or certain ethnic groups.

In an accompanying editorial, Spanish professors Miguel Martinez-Gonzalez and Miguel Ruiz-Canela said people who drink a lot of sweetened drinks often have a poor diet overall, which is more of a determinant of ill-health than any one component.

The study appears in the journal Heart.
