Diet Sodas, Metabolic Syndrome and Type II Diabetes

This is interesting. Very interesting. Especially since it comes from a big name like the American Diabetes Association. You've heard me say before that artificial sweeteners can be hazardous. Well, really I think most "improvements" that we make on nature have their risks. But artificial sweeteners seem to be at the top of most potentially dangerous lists. Here's more evidence:

A new study has recently been published that links diet soda with an increased risk of Metabolic Syndrome and Type II Diabetes. Read the summary of the study here. It's worth three and a half minutes of your time.

For your health,

I have long believed that artificial anything wasn't good for your health. I would much rather drink a regular coke than a diet one anyday. Their are tones of articles discussing the health benefits of artificial sweetners and most argue that they really aren't all that good. Glad someone has finally said it.
