Diet drinks 'increase risk of stroke and heart disease'

  • Oddly enough it was bad laboratory technique- combined with poor hygiene- that led to the discovery of several of today's top artificial sweeteners. Russian chemist Constantin Fahlberg was eating dinner when he made an amazing discovery The rol

The question marks over diet fizzy drinks are nothing new, with many expressing concern that the sweeteners involved can cause a series of health issues if drank in large amounts.

TWO or more diet drinks a day increase the risk of stroke, heart disease and an early death, experts have warned.

Further analysis showed that some groups of women were most at risk, with those drinking two or more diet drinks a day who were also obese having more than double the stroke risk. Just something to be aware of.

Mossavar-Rahmani is an associate professor in the department of epidemiology and population health's division of health promotion and nutrition research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in New York City.

"While we respect the mission of these organizations to help prevent conditions like stroke and dementia, the authors of this study acknowledge that their conclusions do not - and can not - prove cause and effect". However, for some adults, diet drinks with low calorie sweeteners may be helpful as they transition to adopting water as their primary drink.

The study found that drinking diet soda daily increased a person's risk of a stroke by 23% and their risk of heart disease by 29%.

Cardiff poised to sue Nantes over Sala death
Sala had been flying back to Wales after returning to France to say goodbye to his former teammates. The 28-year-old died in a tragic plane crash over the English Channel on January 21.

The American Heart Association has recently published a science advisory which found there was inadequate scientific research to conclude that low-calorie sweetened beverages do or do not affect the risk of heart disease and stroke. During that time - at the three-year mark - all the women were asked to indicate how frequently they consumed diet sodas and diet fruit drinks over a three-month period.

Researchers tracked 81,714 post-menopausal women (aged 50 to 79 at the start of the study) for an average of 12 years. Only about 5 percent were found to be "heavy" consumers of artificially sweetened drinks.

Whether or not the findings would apply to either men or younger women remains unclear, the study authors noted.

Caused by a blocked artery, especially small arteries, stroke can turn out to be life-threatening.

An worldwide team of health experts, in the 2017 review in the journal PLOS Medicine, had said the absence of consistent evidence to support the role of artificially sweetened beverages in preventing weight gain and the lack of studies on other long-term effects on health "strengthen the position" that artificially sweetened beverages "should not be promoted as part of a healthy diet". "Since long-term clinical trial data are not available on the effects of low-calorie sweetened drinks and cardiovascular health, given their lack of nutritional value, it may be prudent to limit their prolonged use" said Johnson.
