Diet drinks linked to 23 percent increase in stroke risk in women
from The Washington Post via Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Swapping regular sodas for diet drinks might seem like a smart way to cut calories. But new research suggests that women who drink a lot of artificially sweetened beverages increase their risk of having a stroke by 23 percent. What's a lot? At least two diet beverages a day for this study. Those women are 31 percent more likely to have the most common type of stroke—an ischemic stroke, which is caused by a clot.
