Drinking diet soda linked to increased risk of depression1/9/2013
Feeling a little blue? Might want to check what you're drinking. A new study has revealed a connection between diet sodas and fruit drinks and depression. Researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center asked more than 260,000 adults between the ages of 50 and 71 about their beverage habits back between 1995 and 1996. Ten years later, they asked the same adults if a doctor had diagnosed them with depression since the year 2000. The results showed that adults who drank diet soda had a 31 percent greater risk of receiving a depression diagnosis; those who drank regular soda saw a 22 percent increase in risk. [Source]
