Study: Drinking 2 glasses of diet drinks a day increases the risk of an early death
A new study by World Health Organisation (WHO) now finds that just two glasses of diet drink a day increases the risk of an early death. The global study, including more than 450,000 adults in 10 countries, found that daily consumption of all types of soft drinks was linked with a higher possibility of dying young. The research was published in the JAMA Internal Medicine journal and is the largest study to examine links between soft drink consumption and mortality. However, the rates for those drinking artificially-sweetened beverages were significantly higher than those consuming full sugar versions of beverages.
According to scientists from WHO International Agency for Research on Cancer in Lyon, it would be 'prudent' to cut out all soft drinks and have water instead. Furthermore, experts speaking at the European Society of Cardiology in Paris said people should 'eliminate' soft drinks from their diet.
