Diet Drink Consumption May Lead to Heart Attacks in Older Women

The Huffington Post reports on a new study conducted by the Women’s Health Initiative that has found that diet drink consumption may be linked to poor cardiac outcomes in older women. Researchers looked at nearly 60,000 women with a mean age of 62.8. After controlling for several factors such as BMI, physical activity levels, and other lifestyle choices, they found “women who consumed two or more diet drinks daily were not only 30 percent more likely to suffer heart attacks and strokes, they were 50 percent more likely to die from some sort of cardiovascular disease, when compared with women who never or rarely drank diet drinks.”
