What makes diet soda unhealthy
Soda or other sweet, carbonated lemonades from well-known manufacturers impress not only with their taste, but also with their refreshment. And since the sinful sugar shock drinks have been available in a number of diet forms, the heart of the consumer is even more happy: Finally drinking soda by the liter without a guilty conscience - after all, it's "diet" and without kilos of sugar. True, the diet drinks are still far from healthy.
Just because no sugar is processed in diet beverages does not mean that they are a healthy alternative. Instead of refined sugar, these cans contain sweeteners such as acesulfame-K (E950), aspartame (E951) and cyclamate (E952). So-called diet sodas are just as harmful to health as drinks that are not declared as "diet". In the long run, the "healthy" version is even more harmful to the body than the sugary version - scientists are certain. In the USA, cyclamate is suspected of causing blood cancer and increasing infertility. In Europe, however, the ingredient has been released without hesitation. The Americans also consider the ingredient aspartame to promote tumors, but it is also approved in Europe. There is no uniform regulation for health authorities across continents and countries. It is therefore at the discretion of the respective country whether a substance is classified as dangerous or not.
Boston University investigated the effects of these diet drinks on possible long-term effects with the help of 4,372 subjects who consumed a glass of diet soda daily. All participants who were 45 years of age when the study started were instructed to document their food and drink recordings from the 1990s. This information was then extrapolated to ten years. The subjects who consumed one or more diet sodas daily had a three times higher risk of suffering a heart attack or developing dementia in old age. Matthew Pase, a lead scientist on the Boston study, told Viralthread that his team recommended that all participants "have water instead of sugary drinks or diet variations." Three percent of the 4,372 examined suffered a heart attack, five percent developed dementia.
Although this number is low in comparison, the following applies: Enjoy lemonades or diet drinks in moderation! Because we all know that this type of drink has never been the healthiest way to add fluids - everyone has to know for themselves who uses the refreshing sparkling shower and how often. But now and then a water does not harm.
