we've always thought, & been taught, that heart disease is caused by stress, high blood pressure & high cholesterol. it seems that it's only part of the story.
ladies & gentlemen, we have a NEW killer. well, actually it's not new but it maybe the REAL killer.
news reports are just filtering through that arteries are narrowed as a result of inflammation &, amongst other causes, the main culprit could be sugar in the blood. read here for a quick overview & here and here for more comprehensive reports.
closer to home, sugar-sweetened soft drinks may be implicated as a cause of pancreatic cancer. (read here)
although these reports have not been validated by peer-reviewed medical journals, perhaps these could be taken as cautionary tales. consider this as you down that can or packet of the sugary stuff this festive season.
blessed new year!
