 Dangers of drinking diet soda

This study was carried out under the lead of Dr. Ankur Vyas, and it represents one of the most comprehensive studies with about 60,000 women who took part in it. This study was being carried out for more than nine years. This study was called the Women’s Health Initiative Observational Study, and it revealed that the participants who drank two or more cans of diet soda per day had increased risk by 30 percent of developing a cardiovascular disease (or to experience a heart attack). They also had an increased risk by 50 percent to die of a heart-related disease compared to someone who drank none.

According to Vyas, this was one of the biggest studies on the topic, and the results from the study are consistent with some previous data, especially those data that have already been linking diet drinks to the metabolic syndrome. If we take into consideration the scale of the study and the fact that nearly one in five people in the United States drink diet soda every day, the results could prove to the immensely significant to the general public health.

To be more precise, 59,614 people participated in the study, and they were divided into four groups by the team of researchers: two or more diet drinks per day, five to seven diet drinks per week, one to four diet drinks per week, and zero to three diet drinks per month.
