GOMEZ MORALES, Luis; BELTRAN ROMERO, Luis Matías  and  GARCIA PUIG, Juan. Sugar and cardiovascular disease. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2013, vol.28, suppl.4, pp.88-94. ISSN 1699-5198.

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in the Spanish population and may be a relationship between the prevalence of these and excessive sugar consumption. In recent years, researchers have focused on the properties of these nutrients. Although there are many studies examining this association, the results are not unanimous. In any case there is sufficient basis for designing public health strategies in order to reduce the consumption of sugary drinks as part of a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, the question we address is: sugar intake in abundant amounts, is associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease? We use as the focus of the discussion SAFO analysis model.

Keywords : Cardiovascular diseases; Sugar consumption; Sugary drinks; Healthy lifestyle.
