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

Wait a minute, you just mention swearing off "diet", what about "regular" sodas?

My friend loves Dr. Pepper, I really think she's addicted to it, anyway, this one time she decided she was going to quit, however, she had a six-pack of them left so she sat there and drank them all. Needless to say, she fell off the wagon pretty quick!

And all those high-sugar fruit juices too! Amy have you ever heard of a connection between using those artificial sweetners and dementia or alzheimers? Someone mentioned that to me before.
