Yes, that is absolutely right Well, drinking 1 diet drink in a day generally imposes a risk of strokes and dementia. Well, a NEW study was found recently.
Here is a story of a diet soda drink consumer. Who consumed a diet drink every day. Let us read what he has to say
I actually have a confession to tell: I’m a former diet coke addict. Actually, I used to drink a lot of diet coke and coke zero and other diet drinks too every day! I also used to sweeten my special coffee with the Splenda. I actually didn’t know anything about the dangers or artificial sweeteners.
then I apparently stopped consuming those artificial sweeteners when I basically got pregnant for the very first time that would be about 7 years ago. At one of the first prenatal visits, the doctor told me to just limit the intake of diet soda and other diet drinks. And at that moment I thought to myself WHY? then, I looked into it and actually found out that the artificial sweeteners are basically really bad for our health.
A new study links diet soft drinks to an increased risk for stroke and dementia. Researchers studied more than 4,000 people over 45 who had filled out food-frequency questionnaires and had periodic health examinations between 1991 and 2001.
The scientists tracked their health over the next 10 years and found 97 cases of stroke and 81 cases of dementia.
The study, in the journal Stroke, found that compared with those who did not drink diet soda, people who drank one to six artificially sweetened drinks a week had twice the risk of stroke. There were similar, although weaker, associations for dementia risk.
The reasons for the link remain unknown.The study adjusted for age, sex, education, physical activity, diabetes, smoking and many other characteristics that might affect the risks.
The Centers For Disease Control And Prevention (CDC) also informed us about the consequences of eating too much sugar in one day. As It is really important to get to know your body limit for added sugars in various products.
We generally know that drinking sugary drinks was bad but Nutrition experts believe that high levels of sugar actually contribute not just to rising levels of obesity, but also various other health conditions such as cancer, diabetes, dental cavities and heart diseases. So try to stay way as much you can.
