An analysis of 12 studies on nearly 410,000 individuals aged 12 and older showed that drinking sugar-sweetened beverages was associated with a 26% to 70% higher risk of high blood pressure levels. Teens who consumed such drinks three or more times each day were 87% more likely to develop high blood pressure than peers who did not drink sugary beverages, one study found. The findings were published in the American Journal of Cardiology.
