I have never really liked diet sodas. To me, it left a funny taste in my mouth and made my teeth feel gross.

In the study, they tested 2,888 adults that were older than 45 years old which they would monitored for stroke and another group of 1,484 adults older than 60 which they monitored for dementia.

CNN reports, “Compared to never drinking artificially sweetened soft drinks, those who drank one a day were almost three times as likely to have an ischemic stroke, caused by blocked blood vessels, the researchers found. They also found that those who drank one a day were nearly three times as likely to be diagnosed with dementia.”

Nonetheless, we need to be careful of what we put in our bodies.
