What is the most important risk factor for cardiovascular disease?
What has been the dietary focus for decreasing hypertension?
Processes foods are predominantly high in these two molecules, which the latter might be more strongly and directly associated with hypertension and cardiometabolic risk.
What molecule should clinicians shift their focus to in controlling hypertension?
Reduction in intake of added sugars (mainly fructose) from the industrial-manufactured consumables would do what to the body?
Help with the broader problem of related cardiometabolic disease.
A decrease in Na+ from processed foods may lead to an increase in their consumption. How would this be bad?
Greater prevalence of cardiometabolic disease from sugar
Higher sugar intake significantly increases BP (6.9/5.6 mmHg) in an 8 week trial. How can these number's be increased?
When you exclude the studies supported by the sugar industries. (7.6/6.1 mmHg)

15/9 mm Hg
HR: 9 bpm
Those who consume 25% or more calories from added sugar have how much of an increased risk of death due to cardiovascular disease?
What has been shown to stimulate sympathetic tone directly and indirectly by inciting insulin resistance and hyperinsulinaemia
An increase in what is one likely mechanism for the sugar's ability to increase HR, cardiac output, renal sodium retention, and vascular resistance, all of which may interact to elevate blood pressure and increase myocardial oxygen demand
sympathetic tone from the overconsumption of fructose
A (a)_________-______ diet for just 2 weeks not only significantly increased 24 h ambulatory (+7/5 mm Hg, p<0.004 and p=0.007, respectively) and increased pulse rate by (b)____% (4 bpm), but also increased (c)____________, (d)______________, and (e)_______________(a measure of insulin resistance and β-cell function). Excess fructose intake has also been shown to (f)_________ the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome
