Stay informed and make good choices for your future health. Here are 5 Powerful Reasons To Quit Drinking Diet Sodas Now.
Remember my post: Drinking One Diet Drink A Day Can Triple Risk Of Dementia And Strokes? The article generated a lot of controversy. Some people commented in favor and some people were not convinced. Sure, more studies are needed. More professional investigations need to take place so that we can be 100% sure of the dangers of artificial sweeteners.
But one thing is certain. Many experts are now in increasingly large numbers telling you how bad these drinks really are for your health and why you need to quit. And I think we should be listening to them.
Diet is not healthier than regular!
People tend to think that diet drinks are healthier because they contain no sugar, but the reality is diet soda may be free of calories, but not of consequences. Artificial sweeteners can be worse than sugar. Just the word “artificial” gives you an indication that it can’t be the best option for you.
This is why I am sharing with you some studies that have already been done. In my opinion, these are 5 powerful reasons to quit drinking diet sodas now. You can click on the studies and find out more details.
5 Powerful Reasons To Quit Drinking Diet Sodas Now
1. Diet Drinks Can Alter Your Mood
The mood-food connection is ever-rising, and Aspartame (a very commonly used artificial sweetener which came into use by some very questionable political trickery back in the day) has been found to have the ability to really mess with the brains of people suffering from anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder. Oh, and did you know that Aspartame is also on the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) list of potentially dangerous chemicals contributing to neurotoxicity? Something you want to be ingesting, no?
2. Diet Drinks Mess With Your Skin
According to doctor and author of health- and wellness book Stop Aging, Start Living: The Revolutionary 2-Week pH Diet, Jeanette Graf, Diet Coke (and other diet drinks) lowers your pH levels, which has been known to cause acne, and also zap your skin of all its radiance.
3. Diet Drinks Can Mess With Your Fertility
Women who regularly consume diet soft drinks may be reducing their chances of getting pregnant, according to research.
A recent study of 524 patients found a link between artificial sweeteners, such as those used in “diet” sodas, and lower fertility rates, while use of sugar in soft drinks and added to coffee was associated with poorer quality of eggs and embryos.
Professor Adam Balen, Chairman of the British Fertility Society, said of the study: “This is a very interesting study that suggests the false promise of artificial sweeteners that are found in soft drinks and added to drinks, such as coffee, may have a significant effect on the quality and fertility of woman’s eggs and this may further impact on the chances of conception.
4. Diet Drinks Make Your Kidneys Sluggish
If you want to stay healthy, it seems diet drinks are your worst enemy. According to a Harvard Nurse’s Health Study, these drinks also interfere with your kidneys, where research found that just two servings of diet soda each day could cause a whopping 30 percent drop in kidney function.
5. Diet drinks Often Contain Aspartame And This Has Been Linked To Cancer
In the US, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) cautions against Aspartame because it is poorly tested and contains three well-known neurotoxins, and a reported study at the Cesare Maltoni Cancer Research Center found that Aspartame increased cancer risk if the exposure begins in the womb.
Those are 5 powerful reasons to quit drinking diet sodas now. In addition to the 6th reason associated with the risk of dementia and stokes from my previous article.

In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
