Sugar IS Bad for Your Body

Researchers in New Zealand reviewed 39 studies that looked at diets in which sugar consumption was increased (and compared to diets with controlled or low sugar intake).

Their results revealed that higher sugar consumption raised triglyceride levels, total cholesterol (including LDL cholesterol), systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

The authors of the study reported that these findings applied even when there was no change in body weight.  Even if you aren’t gaining weight, your sugar intake can be hurting your body.
