Here Is Why You Shouldn’t Drink Diet Coke

By Brian Lemay 100 comments

Put that diet coke down, it could lead to
a heart attack! Hello and welcome back to Inform Overload
I am your cover host for the video, Rebecca Felgate and today I am talking about bad vibes
from diet food and drinks. Oh! Before we get into this story let me know
if you drink coke, diet coke, coke zero…that slightly healthier green one…vanilla coke..cherry
coke… like…are there too many cokes? Let me know your thoughts in the comments
section down below and also do likes this video and share it with a friend who needs
to know about diet coke! While you are down there please check out
our description box which has links to the creative team behind this video and also has
a link to the story source for this video. SO it seems that diet coke isn’t the answer
after all. While a regular can of coca cola has 39 grams
of sugar and can lead to diabetes, heart disease and obesity, and rot your dental enamel, it
seems that diet coke isn’t much better. A major study by the American Heart Association
AND the American Stroke Association found that people who drank diet soda were at a
greater risk of stokes, dementia, heart attacks and diabetes. The study tested over 80 thousand women between
the ages of 50 to 79 and it found that the more senior ladies were 29 percent more likely
to develop heart disease, 31 percent more likely to have a stroke, and 16 percent more
likely to die from any other cause than women who drank two artificially sweetened diet
beverages a day than those who didn’t. The risks were even more dramatically increased
for African American women. That being said, the study from which they
are now drawing the data came from the mid 1990s so is now around 25 years old… at
that time they didn’t test for specifics In the sweeteners so it is hard to know which
of the artificial sweeteners are harmful and which aren’t. More recent studies have also drawn a link
between people over the age of 60 who drink diet sodas and strokes and dementia. Again though…I want to stress that normal
coke isn’t a healthier option and comes with the same risk. I suppose the reason diet soda is being called
out is because people think it is a safer option for your health than regular sodas. People turn to diet options to help them lose
weight but studies have shown that actually diet soda drinkers can add inches to their
waists. It seems that the diet sodas encourage sugar
cravings so it isn’t the soda itself adding the weight, but still… not great. At the moment further studies are being conducted
into whether or not diet sodas slow the metabolism. Scientists are looking at a link between artificial
sweeteners and their effect on how the body processes fats and energy. The other HUGE issue with diet sodas are that
some of their ingredients such as aspartame and saccharin are linked to cancers. The study comes following the reveal that
Americans are guzzling more diet soda than ever. Bro bible says 3 billion gallons, but they
don’t say if that is a day, week, month, year or what? I guess the issue is that actually drinking
anything with fake sweetners and added sugars just isn’t good for you. The best drink is water as we know but even
if people did want soda, diet or otherwise, there is no need to be swilling back more
than one or two a week! They aren’t even hydrating – studies show
sodas can actually dehydrate you…so like…whats the point? So…scary stuff about diet soda! Do you guys drink it ? What type of coke do
you drink and how often? Let me know in the comments section down below! Also while you are down there don’t forget
to leave a thumbs up! COMMENTS from the Pewdiepie video… Tay Tay said: My favourite Youtuber is James

So the study only shows the affect on women but not men. If that was the other way round the women would be triggered and burning their bras.
