What’s in the diet soda that’s making you sick?

8 Feb


Are you one of those people who drink a lot of diet sodas or feed your family this poison?  If so take heed. This might cause you and your family to develop metabolic syndrome. the collection of risk factors for cardiovascular disease and diabetes that include abdominal obesity, high cholesterol and blood glucose levels, and elevated blood pressure.


Scientists studied more that 9500 men and women between 45 and 64 tracking their health for nine years found that  our dietary pattern of red meat, refined grains and friend foods increased our risk for metabolic.  They found that a more prudent diet of  fruits, vegetables, fish and poultry kept us in a neutral zone. Our risk for the metabolic syndrome was neither reduced nor higher. However those who drank at least one can of diet soda or soda a day had a 34 per cent risk of developing metabolic syndrome. The researchers are beginning to ask if there is some kind of chemical in  the diet soda that is making this happen?
