Diet soda hazardous to your health?

By: Dr. Steve Salvatore, Co-Owner of The American Academy of Personal Training

You may be proud that you made the switch from sugary soft drinks to low calorie sodas, but new research suggests that decision may have put your head and heart at risk.  Scientists followed over 2500 New Yorkers for over nine years.  What they found was alarming…

People who drank a diet soda every day had a 61% higher risk for heart attack and stroke.  Surprisingly, researchers are not suggesting giving up the diet sodas for good.  Not yet, anyway.  More studies are needed because this report only established a link, not a cause and effect.  Still, unsweetened beverages are a better choice.
