Just as you were starting to feel virtuous for having switched from sugary sodas to low- or no-calorie substitutes, a new study comes along suggesting that diet sodas might be bad for your head and your heart.

The study, which followed more than 2,500 New Yorkers for nine or more years, found that people who drank diet soda every day had a 61 percent higher risk of vascular events, including stroke and heart attack, than those who completely eschewed the diet drinks, according to researchers who presented their results today at the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference in Los Angeles.

I rarely drink soda...and I think I had heard about that before...I stick to water and hot tea when the mood catches me...which can be just as bad depending on how much sugar I add LOL...

It will not change mine. I love my diet mt dew. I do wish I could give up soda completely. Giving up smoking is MUCH easier than giving up soda.

frown miniUnfortunately probably not! There are so many things that we do and consume that are bad for us. But they are all habits and bad habits are hard to break!

I've never been much of a soda drinker period and I don't drink diet sodas.  The chemicals to replace sugars in them give me violent headaches.  I was told by an allergist that the headaches were caused from allergies to the chemicals.

I knew it. Mabe they just didn't have enough proof to say they actually did know it.

I never touch the stuff anyway.
