Is Diet Soda Linked to Heart, Stroke Risk?


www.webmd.com

Feb. 9, 2011 (Los Angeles) -- You may feel less guilty if you opt for diet sodas over sugary beverages, but drinking them regularly may raise your risk of heart attack and stroke, a study suggests.

In a nine-year study of more than 2,500 people, those who drank diet soda daily were 48% more likely to have a heart attack or stroke or die from those events, compared with those who rarely or never drank soda.

Wow, the study goes further and says there is no significant increase for those that drink regular soda, either.

So you are almost twice as likely to die from Heart issues and Stroke if you drink diet soda. Does the article say why? Well... does it?


"People who drink a lot of diet soda may share some characteristic that explains the association, he explains."


Hmm.. How about ASPARTAME. Is this website serious? Calling itself WebMD, and fails to use deductive reasoning, critical thinking?

Shennannigans!

I wonder how many of the people studied were getting less than 6 hours of sleep each night...

There are a long list studies that reveal an increased risk of dying due to certain things. How many of them take all of the others into account?

Diet soda, at temps. over 70 degrees, turn to methyl alcohol...

Reality is in that twisted Diet coke can. It's poison. It's killing the unborn, raining tumors and seizures on the population, destroying children, incapacitating workers, mimicking MS, erasing memory and blinding. Inexorably Diet Coke visits a plague of 92 symptoms listed by our FDA on a secret report they'll never show which names diet soda as the first source of aspartame disease. And yes, Death was one of the 92.
