The University of Iowa had done the Largest Study:
There were women who consumed soda drinks (about 2) and the ones that didn’t consume them at all, and in the end, it was concluded that the group which consumed soda drinks had 30% increased risk of developing a cardiovascular disease, and they had a 50% increased risk to die from that disease.
Dr. Ankur Vyas reported that the study they had done was the largest one on that topic, and their findings were similar to some they had before, especially for the soda drinks about the metabolic syndrome.
The association was persisted right after the experts of the study have adjusted the data to account for the demographic characteristics and some other risks that can trigger a cardiovascular disease, such as salt intake, body mass index, diabetes, smoking, hypertension, energy intake, physical activity, hormone therapy use, high cholesterol, sugar-sweetened beverage consumption, etc.
Actually, women who consume 2 diet drinks or more are having higher risks of having diabetes, higher body mass index, higher blood pressure and are more likely to smoke cigarettes as well.
According to Time Magazine:
The awareness of obesity in the U.S. is constantly growing, and the awareness about the sugar-sweetened beverages as well. According to Reuters (industry experts), the beverage industry is slowly shrinking under the scrutiny. The died drinks that were made by these companies, were suffering a loss of sales because people started to concern about the artificial sweeteners that were used in these drinks. With this study, it was only important to raise awareness of the harmfulness of this artificial awareness, and they can be replaced with new natural sweeteners, and they are a lot healthier than the aspartame that is used in these diet drinks.
There is also another important fact if the diet sodas are going down in sales, this also means that people are aware how harmful they are, but not only that they aware but they are also preventing from countless diseases and health risks that can be triggered by these sweeteners.
