Here's another reason to limit your intake of sugar.
Sugar is considered an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease and many other chronic diseases, according a new study.
The study was published Monday in Jama Internal Medicine.

The U.S. government hasn't issued a dietary limit for added sugars.
But the American Heart Association recommends limiting sugar to less than 100 calories daily for women and 150 calories daily for men.

The study is referring to sugar found in candy, desserts and sweetened beverages.
Naturally occurring sugar, which is found in fruit, is okay.
