If you like drinking no calorie diet soda because you think it's healthier then regular soda, guess again.
A new study from researchers at Purdue University shows that diet soda can cause the body to struggle processing sugar. Because diet soda uses artificial sweeteners instead of real sugar, your body gets confused when drinking it.
When you consume real sugar, the body doesn't produce the hormones needed to regulate blood sugar and blood pressure. This can lead to sharp weight gains.
People said knowing this, they would be less likely to drink it.
The report also showed that diet soda drinkers who maintained a healthy weight range were still more at risk to suffer from diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
While experts did say more research needs to be done on artificial sweeteners found in diet soda, they warn that you should limit how much you drink.
