Diet Soda May Heighten Risk for Vascular Events. Nutrition Counseling Can Improve Diet.

December 30, 2011|Uncategorized

Diet soda may not be the healthier alternative many had hoped.

A new study suggests that the popular drinks may increase the risk for stroke, myocardial infarction, and vascular death.

“People who had diet soda every day experienced a 61% higher risk of vascular events than those who reported drinking no soda,” lead investigator Hannah Gardener, ScD, an epidemiologist from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in Florida, told reporters attending a news conference here at the International Stroke Conference.

Other beverages may be healthier. For example, drinking iced tea with lemon without sweetener, water with lemon or seltzer with lime can be great alternatives to soda of any kind. Start the New Year with a healthier diet.
