Loneliness, Excessive Sugar & Eating Right

Loneliness, Excessive Sugar & Eating Right

Posted: Updated:

A new study finds loneliness is a strong predictor of premature death from coronary heart disease and stroke. 

Scandinavian researchers say people with poor social networks are three times more likely to suffer from anxiety and depression and have a significantly lower quality of life.

Too Much Sugar

U.S. toddlers average more than seven teaspoons of sugar per day, according to a new study. 

CDC researchers also found 60 percent of children consumed added sugar before their first birthday. 

Experts say eating foods with sugar can influence a child's lifelong preferences.

Added sugar is linked to obesity, cavities, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.

Eating Right Pays Off

New research shows if Americans can improve their diets by even 20 percent, it could save $30 billion to $45 billion a year in health-related costs. 

Most of those savings are associated with heart disease alone.
