Sugar and Cholesterol Levels

Posted Apr 25 2010 12:31pm
We know that our cholesterol levels are impacted adversely by consuming cholesterol, saturated fats, and trans fats.

An article from JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) on April 21 2010 finds that the higher the intake of added sugar, the lower the HDL "good" cholesterol, and the higher the LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.

It is likely that this is due to fructose, which leads to increased production of lipids by the liver and decreasing removal of lipids from the blood stream.

So, as part of a healthy diet, here is yet another reason to stay away from foods with added sugar.
