|Health Caution: Diet Soda|
By now, I guess everyone knows that Diet Soda can actually cause you to gain weight, not lose it.
The bigger news is, according to the TV report, that drinking just 1 diet soda per day increases your risk of stroke and dementia.
Don't take my word for it. Here's an article about the findings from the New York Times.
Ironically, my dad had both heart disease and suffered a severe stroke. He also had Alzheimer's.
He drank nothing but diet sodas, and tea and coffee sweetened artificially for the last 10-15 years of his life because he was diabetic.
Always keep abreast of the latest scientific research regarding health and nutrition. Alter your diet accordingly.
