Orlando, FL— July 28, 2015 — Sugary drinks have been a very popular beverage choice of millions of people from around the world. In many countries, they are inexpensive and can be bought almost anywhere. Unfortunately, these drinks are generally not good for the health.
A new study reveals that the consumption of sugary sodas may increase RA risk. It is easy for people to be tempted to drink sugary sodas, as this type of beverage has some very pleasant but temporary effects on people. The beverage can energize certain individuals while others feel satiated when they drink it.
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published a recent study that finds women who consume one or more sodas that are sweetened with sugar on a daily basis, are highly susceptible to rheumatoid arthritis compared to those who drink less, or do not drink the beverage at all. The researchers also added that the risk seemed to be higher for older women.
“Rheumatoid arthritis causes inflammation, which often results in joint pain and damage as well as other symptoms such as fatigue,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.
It is believed that genetic and environmental factors, including diet, highly contribute to the development of the condition. Many studies in the past years have shown how the consumption of sugar-sweetened soda is associated with certain conditions. These conditions include heart disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity, which are common in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers were trying to find out whether sugary beverages play a role in the occurrence of rheumatoid arthritis.
Yang Hu, lead study author and colleagues at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, monitored women who were subjects of two large studies of nurses, namely the Nurses’ Health Study and NHS II. There were 190,000 women whose diet and health were analyzed. In the case of the Nurses’ Health Study, the women were monitored from 1980 to 2008, and 1991 to 2009 for NHS II.
It was found that those who consumed more than one soda on a daily basis were 63 percent more susceptible to rheumatoid arthritis than those who did not drink soda, or those who drank less. It was also important to note that those who consumed more had poorer diets and exercised less.
Many people nowadays are resorting to a variety of preventive measures to reduce their risk of having rheumatoid arthritis. There are those who improve their food preferences and stick to a healthy diet. There are also individuals who take natural alternatives, such as curcumin supplements, to reduce RA risk and improve their overall condition (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/).
