Study shows that diet sodas may be tied to stroke and increased risk of dementia.
The American Heart Association published on it’s journal Stroke, that artificial sweeteners, like those found in diet soda, are tied to a higher risk of stroke and dementia. Currently the study simply shows an association between the two, as they have not identified the actual cause and effect derived from these artificial sweeteners.
“More research is needed to study the health effects of diet drinks so that consumers can make informed choices concerning their health,” said Matthew Pase a senior research fellow in the department of neurology at Boston University School of Medicine and lead author of the new study.
So it seems that diet sodas can not only have a negative effect on our waistline, but now may be causing damage to our brains.
I think I’ll stay away from diet sodas for now… Will You???
