Could Diet Sodas Raise an Older Woman's Stroke Risk?

  • Oddly enough it was bad laboratory technique- combined with poor hygiene- that led to the discovery of several of today's top artificial sweeteners. Russian chemist Constantin Fahlberg was eating dinner when he made an amazing discovery The rol

And compared with people who never touch them, the risk of early death is 16 percent higher for diet drink guzzlers.

However, this research took a different approach by focusing on the most common stroke types; "ischemic stroke and its subtypes, one of which was small-vessel blockage".

In the latest findings of what's bad for us to consume, researchers found that drinking two or more diet drinks a day could be linked to strokes and heart attacks. A new study suggests that drinking diet drinks was associated with an increased risk of having a stroke among post-menopausal women, researchers say.

Meanwhile, post-menopausal women who drink diet beverages on a regular basis are 31 percent more likely to have a stroke caused via a clot, the study noted.

Dr Yasmin Mossavar-Rahmani, lead author of the study at New York's Albert Einstein College of Medicine, said: "Many well-meaning people, especially those who are overweight or obese, use low-calorie sweetened drinks to cut calories".

Now this major study was conducted by the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association.

The decision comes after Netanyahu was quoted as saying that "Poles cooperated with the Germans" in the Holocaust . He then vowed that no one would change the historical truth of what happened.

The research, described as among the first to probe the connection between artificially sweetened beverages and specific types of stroke, involved tracking the health of over 81,700 post-menopausal women aged between 50 and 79 years in the U.S. for over a decade.

"We don't know specifically what types of artificially sweetened beverages they were consuming, so we don't know which artificial sweeteners may be harmful and which may be harmless", Mossavar-Rahmani said.

The study found the risk of death was "twice as likely" for women with no prior heart disease or diabetes, obese women, and African-American women. "Since long-term clinical trial data are not available on the effects of low-calorie sweetened drinks and cardiovascular health, given their lack of nutritional value, it may be prudent to limit their prolonged use" said Johnson. These sweeteners haven't been studied enough yet to provide definitive answers, but work in animals suggests that compounds like saccharin and aspartame may compromise the body's ability to break down glucose properly, and impaired glucose control can lead to diabetes, a risk factor for heart disease and circulatory problems like stroke.

Last year, scientists from Israel and Singapore warned six artificial sweeteners in the drinks are toxic to our gut bacteria - which could have a link with a range of diseases from obesity to bowel disease, even Alzheimer's.

"This is another confirmatory study showing a relationship between artificially sweetened beverages and vascular risks".
