A new study has suggested that drinking as many as five cans of diet soda or about one and a half litres of diet drinks with artrificial sweeteners in them daily may result in diabetes.
The study conducted among American teens and kids said that those who consumed low-calorie or diet sodas consumed almost 200 calories more per day, as compared to people who just stuck to water for hydration.
Sodas are made up of carbonated water and sweeteners, like high fructose corn syrup or sucrose, phosphoric acid, natural flavours and caffeine.
Drinking colas and other sugary drinks is tied to an increased risk of so-called pre-diabetes, a precursor to full-blown disease, but diet soda is not, a recent study suggests.
It is always suggested to curtail down on consumption of sugary drinks. Several experts have given different suggestions for the same, which include adequate consumption of water, going caffeine-free, switching to diet sodas et al.
A women in California filed a lawsuit against a diet soda company, which was rejected by a California court stating that the beverage does not promise to help buyers lose weight.
According to a study, the researchers found that both sugar and artificially sweetened beverage consumption has been linked to cardio-metabolic risk factors.
If youre one of those people who recklessly drink countless cans of diet-soda because the word diet grabs your attention, then you wont like what we have to say next.
