HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE? SODA MAY BE A CAUSE!

A new study shows that people with pre-hypertension or stage I hypertension, dropped their blood pressure if they reduced their intake of soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages.  That includes all kinds of sweetened ice tea, sweetened green tea, those with “real suga,” etc.

We previously reported on the concept of “soda belly.”

TIP:  Substitute water; green tea; coffee for soda.  Juice is probably as bad as soda – eat the fruit, instead!

Reducing Consumption of Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Is Associated with Reduced Blood Pressure
