Pop Kills

More evidence high fructose corn syrup ain’t good for you:

Another study has demonstrated that consuming beverages that contain high fructose corn syrup contributes to spikes in serum triglycerides, really nasty fat transporters that clog your arteries and can help make you die.

"Increased triglycerides after a meal are known predictors of cardiovascular disease," explained lead author Karen Teff, PhD. "Our findings show that fructose-sweetened beverages raise triglyceride levels in obese people, who already are at risk for metabolic disorders such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes."

Yes, pop (soda for you not of the Midwest) kills (or at least pop sweetened with high fructose corn syrup, glucose sweetened not so bad)
