You have a hard time quitting soda, right? You try to switch to diet as a means to cut back but is that really what you should be doing?

Truth is that diet sodas are not good for us either! One study carried out by the University of Iowa has shown that the chemical artificial sweeteners they use (Aspartame) to make these are linked with an increased risk of heart disease. Head researcher on this study was Dr. Ankur Vyas and the study contained about 60,000 women over a nine-year period.

In this, it was found that participants who indulged in two or more cans of diet soda a day were 30% more likely to suffer some sort of cardiovascular event and 50% more likely to die of a heart-related disease than someone who did not drink these diet sodas at all. This is easily one of the largest studies that have been done on this topic. The more diet soda you drink the higher your risks.

These findings are something we should consider eye-opening, to say the least. Tons of people consume diet drinks each day and some much more than two cans this could be detrimental to overall public health. In this study, their participants were split into four groups the groups being broken down into two or more diet drinks a day. five to seven diet drinks per week, one to four diet drinks per week, and zero to three diet drinks per month.

The health records of each woman were analyzed after almost ten years and the results definitely speak for themselves. These are things that should be more than enough cause for worry. The money that goes into making diet soda seem healthy is proof that these companies are only concerned with adding more cash to their pockets.

These corporations will do whatever it takes to increase profit and yes, that includes killing us off slowly. Please pay attention to what you put in your body. For more information on this please take the time to watch the video below.
