Diabetes is always closely linked to any sugary food. It raises the risk of a person to get Type 2 diabetes. But guess what? So does the diet sodas available in the market which boasts of it being sugar-free. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition did a study involving more than 66,000 women whose drinking pattern were self reported over fourteen years. It is a well known fact that women are more likely to order/buy diet drinks. This is because more women are concerned with their weight. During the fourteen year period, 1,369 of the women were diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. This amount can be blamed on the artificially sweetened drinks / diet sodas. The study also showed that women consumed more diet – drinks than sugar sweetened ones. What is more surprising is that diet soda drinkers even have higher risk of getting type 2 diabetes than those who take regular soda. More of this study will be published for the public to see sometime soon.
