It is not just salt to watch out for. The University of Colorado, Denver Health Sciences Center found that among 4,528 adults age 18 or older, those that consumed 74g or more a day of fructose (the same as 2 and a half regular sodas) had a 26% to 77% increased risk for HBP (levels over 120/80mmHG).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that children who consume high levels of fructose may also have more belly fat and less insulin sensitivity. As we have heard over the past few years; abdominal obesity raises the risk of heart disease as well as type 2 diabetes. This is a growing epidemic for U.S. kids.
