Yet another study confirms what people have been saying for ages: Stop drinking diet soda. Like, right now. Drinking just one 12-ounce can of an artificially sweetened fizzy drink per week can increase your risk of Type 2 diabetes by 33 percent, French researchers found, and given that most people don't stop at a single weekly serving, your real risk for diabetes could actually be much higher.
Going by the article, it seems that regular soda still puts you at the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, but not nearly as much as artificially sweetened soda.
I'm glad I swore off diet sodas over ten years ago.
