Article about whether sweetened drinks can cause heart failure, featured in the Conversation 18/11/15.


Consumption of sweetened beverages may be associated with increased risk of heart failure, but this needs to be viewed alongside diet as a whole – as well as a person’s broader lifestyle. Focusing on one nutrient at a time can be misleading and even counterproductive. It contributes to the seemingly endless controversies about what we should eat and how much we should eat. These controversies might sell newspapers and bogus health products, but they don’t do anything to help the consumer make informed choices.
