Sugary drinks raise the risk for heart disease in women

The Average American drinks an estimated 50 gallons of sweetened beverages a year.  Sadly for women, a new study suggests that sugary drinks raise the risk of heart disease in women, without the same threat to men. The new study presented to a scientific session of the American Heart Association finds that just two drinks a day can significantly raise the risk of developing high triglycerides and type-two diabetes. This can happen even if the women don't gain weight.
