Bad News for Diet Soda Drinkers

If you drink diet soda on a regular basis, you could be at increased risk for heart disease and stroke.

These conclusions were reached after researchers found that people who drank diet soda everyday had a 61 percent high risk of having a stroke than those who reported drinking no soda.

The study was done at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in Florida.

Intake of diet soda has also been linked to an increased risk for metabolic syndrome and diabetes.

Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of abnormal tests results for blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol that are often found in people who are overweight or obese.
