Eating sugary foods increases the risk of dying from heart disease.
According to the study, Those whose intake is 10-25 per cent added sugar has 30 pct increased risk of cardiovascular death.
The scientists calculated “added sugar” — that is, all sugar not found naturally in fruits and fruit juices, but instead in sugar-sweetened beverages, dairy desserts, candy, cakes and other foods – as a percentage of total calorie intake.
Those whose diet was more than 25 per cent added sugar almost tripled their risk.
