Diet soda risks for older women
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Older women who like diet soda may have this health risk to consider.
A new study suggests drinking diet drinks regularly could be linked to heart disease. The study was presented at the American College of Cardiology's annual meeting. It looked at nearly 60,000 healthy women ages 50 to 79.
Researchers compared women who never, or rarely drank diet sodas to women who had two or more diet drinks a day. Nine years later, they found the women who regularly drank diet sodas were 30 percent more likely to suffer cardiovascular problems. In addition they were 50 percent more likely to die from heart-related disease.
The American Beverage Association says the study's results do not show that drinking diet sodas causes heart problems.
