Gatwick, Surrey (PRWEB UK) 14 February 2014
Valentine’s Day is upon us and sugary treats and three course meals will certainly set hearts racing for many, and not in the metaphorical sense. According to a recent US study, eating too many sugary drinks, desserts and sweets can increase an individual’s risk of having a heart attack reports the BBC on 4th February 2014. According to Professor Naveed Sattar from the British Heart Foundation, “Helping individuals cut not only their excess fat intake, but also refined sugar intake could have major health benefits including lessening obesity and heart attacks.” (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-26020017)
From the study, the correlation between sugar consumption and death by heart related problems affects tens of thousands of US citizens. This study is not only applicable to the US but also the UK. Most adults and children living in the UK consume high levels of sugar. Though sugar is needed to for energy, excessive amounts will not only pile on the pounds but also accelerate heart disease.
People who receive a quarter of the daily calories from added sugar have a very high risk of dying from cardiovascular disease than those who eat far less sugar. The food industry is specifically targeted as Professor Naveed Sattar says, “Ultimately there needs to be a refocus to develop foods which not only limit saturated fat intake but simultaneously lined refined sugar content.”
Your Lifestyle Products comment on the latest study, “This study puts a bit of a dampener on Valentine’s Day doesn’t it? In all seriousness though, we believe that a little of what you fancy in moderation is a good thing, so just remember to balance the naughty treats with good nutritious choices. At this time of year, helping your loved one to take care of their heart is probably one of the greatest gifts you could give this Valentine’s Day."
