Study: Diet soda linked with heart disease and even death
(KTVI) – People may think diet sodas are a better alternative to regular soda but new research says they could cause heart disease in women.
Researchers at the University of Iowa say women who drink two or more diet sodas each day, may be more likely to develop heart disease. They say they are not health drinks. The study found diet sodas may help people avoid sugar, but they don’t help them lose weight.
Researchers say the women who drank the most diet sodas were also more likely to smoke, be overweight, have diabetes, and high blood pressure.
