Symptoms: Metabolic Syndrome Is Tied to Diet Soda
Published New York Times: February 5, 2008
Researchers have found a correlation between drinking diet soda and risk factors for cardiovascular disease and diabetes (obesity, high cholesterol, blood glucose levels and high blood pressure).
- Drinking one can of diet soda a day= 34% higher risk (compared with drinking none)
I don't know, but I'm glad I don't drink diet soda! It goes back to putting 'real' food and beverages into your body, not manufactured 'foods'.
A diet high in refined grains, fried foods and red meat = 18% increased risk
A diet of fruits, vegetables, fish and poultry = no increase of decrease in risk
Diets with the highest amount of fried food = 25% increased (compared to the lower end of fried food eaters)
