WEB Notes: Munching down on fake food is not good for you period. They have proven this over and over again. We talked about budgeting yesterday and how many people cannot see past their own budgeting problems. We also see the same thing with health. People will eat garbage and wonder why they gain weight or have health issues. Have we all forgot the saying, “you are what you eat”?
Gulping down an artificially sweetened beverage not only may be associated with health risks for your body, but also possibly your brain, a new study suggests.
Artificially sweetened drinks, such as diet sodas, were tied to a higher risk of stroke and dementia in the study, which published in the American Heart Association’s journal Stroke on Thursday.
The study sheds light only on an association, as the researchers were unable to determine an actual cause-and-effect relationship between sipping artificially sweetened drinks and an increased risk for stroke and dementia. Therefore, some experts caution that the findings should be interpreted carefully.
