A 10-year study of over 100,000 participants has found that diet drinks aren’t a healthier alternative when it comes to heart health.
The study, which was based on research from french company NutriNet-Sante, was recently published in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology. It concludes that in a ten-year follow-up, participants who drank both sugary and artificially sweetened drinks were both leading to heart disease risk.
“Our study suggests artificially sweetened beverages may not be a healthy substitute for sugar drinks,” says the study’s lead author Eloi Chazelas from the Nutritional Epidemiology Research Team at Sorbonne Paris Nord University.
