SUGAR, SUGAR EVERYWHERE… EAT AT YOUR OWN RISK

Added sugar is everywhere in prepared food. It doesn’t just cause diabetes; it also is associated with high blood lipids and cholesterol. This week’s Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA):

Dietary carbohydrates have been associated withdyslipidemia, a lipid profile known to increase cardiovasculardisease risk. Added sugars (caloric sweeteners used as ingredientsin processed or prepared foods) are an increasing and potentiallymodifiable component in the US diet.

Conclusion In this study, there was a statistically significantcorrelation between dietary added sugars and blood lipid levelsamong US adults.

The morals:  Read labels.  Prepare your own foods.
