Diet soda…Uhhmmm…..NO…!!

I hope everyone enjoyed the total eclipse viewing, if indeed you were one of those lucky enough to experience it. I admit I did view it though some old x-ray film, however at very brief glimpses. Must say it was very cool..! Speaking of things not so cool, I read an article that discussed how bad diet soda is for us. A study out of a Swedish medical university found that consuming only 2 cans of diet soda twice a day increases you risk of heart failure by a whopping 23%. This study was focused on men who drank diet soda and the results were even worse than those who drank regular soda. On top of that bad news is another study from the American Heart Association, that found those who drank daily diet soda were at 3 times the risk of dementia and stroke. I’m not much for drinking pop/soda but even that information would give me pause if I did. I hope this helps someone reconsider their beverage choices! Spread the word…!
