Diet Sodas Are Not The Answer For Sugary Drink Thirsts—Study

The harmful effects on health from sugary drinks or soda are very well known. They can cause diabetes, stroke, obesity, and other issues in the brain, as well as smaller brain volume and poorer memory. But diet sodas are not the answer. Several studies have found a link amid artificially sweetened beverages and surged risk of heart disease, stroke, heart attack and cardiac-related deaths in women. In the recent study, scientists suggested that, even without recognizing a particular cause and effect, people should critically consider the potentially detrimental effects of artificially sweetened drinks. The study was published in the journal Stroke.

Researchers from the BUSM (Boston University School of Medicine) analyzed 4,000 people for over 10 Years. By using MRI tests, they stated that one artificially sweetened soda per day can add to brain changes that can cause dementia, plus the type of stroke caused by a barrier in a blood vessel. These perils were triple in those people who did not drink diet sodas. It was not clear which common artificial sweetener—aspartame, saccharin, or sucralose—was consumed. While some people consider diet soda as a way of quitting regular soda, it can be healthier in the long run to omit this type of transition.

On a similar note, recently, a study stated that even a small glass of juice or soda a day could augment the risk of cancer. Previously also researchers have cautioned against drinking in excess of soda or juice. Now they report that even a small glass can have potential dangers. Investigators from health organizations in France carried a study to find out the association amid cancer risk and artificially sweetened drinks, and ones like that of diet beverages. The study was published in the British Medical Journal. The research team found that just 100 ml of a sugary drink increased cancer risk by nearly 18% and breast cancer risk by 22%.
