Diet soda drinkers are probably doing their waistlines a favor, but may also be boosting their risk of having a stroke, according to research released by researchers from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
The study monitored the health of more than 2500 patients over nearly a decade.
They answered lengthy questionnaires about nutrition along the way and were monitored for several conditions.
In the time they were under evaluation, 559 of the test subjects experienced vascular events, including strokes caused by hemorrhage and those caused by clots.
