Yes, you heard right. Drinking One Diet Drink A Day Can Triple Risk Of Dementia And Strokes, new study finds. Only ONE a day!
I have a confession to make: I am a former diet coke addict. I used to drink diet coke, coke zero, and diet drinks EVERYDAY! I also used to sweeten my coffee with Splenda. I didn’t know about the dangers or artificial sweeteners.
I stopped consuming artificial sweeteners when I got pregnant for the first time, about 7 years ago. At one of my first prenatal visits, my doctor told me to limit the intake of diet soda. And I though to myself WHY? So, I looked into it and found out artificial sweeteners are really bad for our health.
After I had my son, I decided to never go back to artificial sweeteners again. It was hard at the beginning, because I was used to drinking diet coke everyday. I liked it. I actually LOVED it! But with time, I got used to drinking water instead. And now, I don’t crave it anymore. Hurray!
NOW I FOUND ANOTHER POWERFUL REASON TO AVOID DRINKING DIET SODAS.
It is so important to stay informed and learn about the dangers of processed foods. With information from reliable sources, you can make better choices for you and your family. This is how I changed my eating habits. Little by little you can switch to better and healthier ingredients.
Remember that we are what we eat. Sugary drinks are bad, but diet drinks can even be more dangerous! Drinking One Diet Drink A Day Can Triple Risk Of Dementia And Strokes. Bad for our body and our brain too.
What we put in our bodies will definitely affect our health and our future health. I have seen the difference, and it is truly amazing!
