Diet Sodas May Be Tied To Stroke, Dementia Risk


Gulping down an artificially sweetened beverage not only may be associated with health risks for your body, but also possibly your brain, a new study suggests.

Artificially sweetened drinks, such as diet sodas, were tied to a higher risk of stroke and dementia in the study, which published in the American Heart Association’s journal Stroke on Thursday.
The study sheds light only on an association, as the researchers were unable to determine an actual cause-and-effect relationship between sipping artificially sweetened drinks and an increased risk for stroke and dementia. Therefore, some experts caution that the findings should be interpreted carefully.
No connection was found between those health risks and other sugary beverages, such as sugar-sweetened sodas, fruit juice and fruit drinks. Read more at CNN.

If you have a diet soda after a caffeinated coffee when standing in front of a microwave while talking on your cell phone using headphones but took 1 aspirin before you drank, then 5 out of 4 scientific doctors put the odds of you living until 120 as equal to the vegetarian on a gluten free diet who wasn’t vaccinated except for the Marsala vaccine that eats only organic food, as long as you exercise at least 30 minutes a day using an elliptical StairMaster bike for chai while doing 25 sit ups in the push up position, but only if you are an Atkins diet alumnus that now orders a salad when eating at a Neilas Hachag that is at the same time as your Melava Malka on a summer night.
