Sodas & Health Risks

Researchers from the Boston University School of Medicine have found out that sodas - sugar-sweetened and the diet variety - are also risk factors for heart disease and diabetes.

According to the study, adults who drink one or more sodas per day have a 50% higher risk of metabolic syndrome - risk factors that include excessive fat around the waist, high blood pressure and low levels of good cholesterol. They also have a 31% higher risk of becoming obese.

Discuss your medical conditions, including heart problems, and medications, including alpha blockers prescribed for prostate problems or high blood pressure, with your doctor to ensure levitra is right for you and that you are healthy enough for sexual activity. Levitra is not recommended for men with uncontrolled high blood pressure. http://www.levitrabliss.com/
