Simple: cut back on added sugar intake found in sodas and processed food (e.g., packaged foods) in your diet. These foods contain sucrose and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) which may lower "good" cholesterol (HDL) and raise triglyceride levels--both are risk factors for heart disease. Interesting how the trend for increased heart disease today seems to mirror the trend in rising sugar consumption. To wit: in the late 1970s, sugar consumption was 11% of an adult's caloric intake; whereas today the figure is 16%!
