It is important to make good choices for your health in what you drink and eat and soda of anykind is not good for your overall health. We like to suggest that you drink water and drinks with nutrition to help you build better health. Along with a good diet, regular exercise and check ups with a chiropractor.
Researchers found the results were surprising. Study senior author, Dr. Vasan Ramachandran of the Boston University School of Medicine commented, "It's intriguing and it begs an explanation by people who are qualified to do studies to understand this better."
Barry Popkin, of the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill voiced his concern about the study by saying, "There's too much contradictory evidence that shows that diet beverages are healthier for you in terms of losing weight that I would not put any credence to the result on the diet (drinks)."
The study did show that those who drank soda, whether diet or not, were subject to an increase in "metabolic syndrome", a cluster of symptoms that increase the risk for heart disease and a host of other heart issues.
The American Heart Association issued a statement in response to the study, "Diet soda can be a good option to replace caloric beverages that do not contain important vitamins and minerals."
