New Research Suggests Strong Link Between Sweetened Caloric Beverages and Metabolic Syndrome

ationship between sweetened caloric beverage consumption and diabetes risk. George Bray, MD, of Pennington Center, Baton Rouge, Louisiana will highlight the scientific link between soft drinks and obesity.

Research Highlights

Circulation 2007].
  • Eight-year data from the Nurses' Health Study II found an increased consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages was associated with a significant increased risk of diabetes, regardless of whether the data controlled for BMI [Schulze MB et al. JAMA 2004].

Ed Horton, MD, Harvard Medical School will introduce the workshop, which is hosted by the International Chair on Cardiometabolic Risk (ICCR). Dr. Jean-Pierre Despres, Universite Laval, Quebec, Canada, Scientific Director of the ICCR, will summarize the discussion and its key conclusions.
