Soft Drinks Linked to Metabolic Syndrome Risk

BOSTON, July 23 — Soft drinks, whether diet or regular, are associated with substantially increased metabolic syndrome risk among middle-age adults, according to a large community-based study.

Men and women who drank more than one soda daily had a 48% adjusted higher prevalence and 44% higher roughly eight-year adjusted incidence of the cluster of heart disease risk factors than those who drank less, reported Ramachandran S. Vasan, M.D., of Boston University, and colleagues, online in Circulation, Journal of the American Heart Association.
