Too Much Sugar Caused a 40% Higher Risk of Cardiovascular Death

The National Health and Nutrition Examination  Survey (NHANES) showed that those who consumed 17-21% of their diet in sugar had a 40% higher risk of CV death than those who consumed less than 10% of their calories from sugar.  One-tenth of the population consumes greater than 25% of their diet in sugar, and they tripled their risk of CV death.  The numbers speak for themselves.  Healthy nutrition makes a big difference in your longevity, health, and quality of life.
