A new study links drinking sugar sweetened beverages to unhealthy levels and sizes of cholesterol in your blood, a condition called dyslipidemia. In the study, published in The Journal of Nutrition, researchers concluded that drinking sugar sweetened beverages, such as soft drinks, led to higher levels of the potentially dangerous LDL cholesterol, apoB, triglycerides, and non-HDL cholesterol. They concluded that drinking these beverages was associated with dyslipidemia, which increases cardiometabolic risk in adults. Sugar sweetened beverages are the largest source of added sugar we get in our diets.
