3 Interesting Research facts you must know if cutting sugar really prevents diseases

Did you ever imagine that removing the excess spoons of sugar from your favorite dishes and beverages prevents your risk of developing diseases?

Yes, its proven with the factual data

Here is the short summary of the latest research from a micro-simulation study published in the Circulation

  • As high as 2.48 million cardiovascular disease events (like strokes, heart attacks, angina and cardiac arrests), 490,000 cardiovascular deaths, and 750,000 diabetes cases in the U.S. over the lifetime of the adult population can be prevented just by reducing 20 percent of sugar from packaged foods as well as cutting 40 percent of sugar from beverages

Dariush Mozaffarian, MD, DrPH, co-senior author and dean of the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University says that “Sugar is one of the most obvious additives in the food supply to reduce to reasonable amounts,”

“The findings from this study suggest that it’s high time to implement a national program with voluntary sugar reduction targets, which can generate major improvements in health, health disparities, and healthcare spending in less than a decade.”
