Diet Soda May Increase Your Risk Of Heart Attack And Stroke… A Lot!

Filed under: FitnessFoodHealth

Diet Cokes Gives Heart Attacks Maybe

Better cut back on that diet Coke and switch to water, because regardless of the lack of calories, that diet cola is probably increasing your risk of heart attack and stroke…

… by 44%!

That's a HUGE increase!!

The research followed almost 2,600 older adults for a decade, and found that those who drank diet soda every day were 44 percent more likely than non-drinkers to suffer a heart attack or stroke.

But, it might NOT be the drink itself but rather the people who drink diet cola end up being the kind of people making other poor dietary decisions as well.

They did try and factor in as much as possible though, and still found that 44% link!

The good general rule is that you shouldn't be drinking soda — even if it's diet.

Water is MUCH better!

Although the poor are usually the economic class we assume eat the most fast food, a new study of 5,000 Americans has revealed the biggest consumer to be the middle class.

After studying data from surveys asking participants about restaurant dining habits, income, race, gender, age and education, researchers from the University of California, Davis, found that visits to fast food joints rose along with annual income up to $60,000.

Senior study author J. Paul Leigh believes the study proves fast food is not the only reason that poor people are more likely to be obese, explaining:

Rough times for Conrad Murray.

The doctor who was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson case is now unable to afford his own lawyer.

Even though, there was a time in his life where he earned up to $150,000 a month to act as MJ's doctor, it looks like Conrad is now broke as he has asked the court to appoint him a public defender to help him appeal his conviction.

He filed a notice appeal to the LA Superior Court on Tuesday.

And it looks like he's getting the not-so-friendly treatment in jail. His former lawyer saw that police had put him in handcuffs and leg chains and even handcuffed him to the table for their meeting, which is something that non-violent offenders have to experience.
