diet soda stroke

diet soda stroke

It isn't actal conclsive proof but new research has revealed worries about diet soda, saying that there is a higher risk for strokes and heart attacks among people who consume it everyday as opposed to people who don't drink it at all. Dr Steve Greenberg said these findings should be "a wakeup call to pay attention to diet sodas,".

A simple solution, health experts say, is to drink water instead. Doctors have no chemical or biological explanation for why diet soda may be risky. It could be that people who drink lots of it also fail to exercise, weigh more, drink more alcohol or have other risk factors like high blood pressure and smoking. However, the researchers took these and many other factors into account and didn't see a change in the trend. "It's reasonable to have doubts, because we don't have a clear mechanism. This needs to be viewed as a preliminary study," said lead researcher Hannah Gardener of the University of Miami.

So a somewhat shocking finding which will make many think twice about buying a diet pepsi and make them want to buy mineral water instead!
