Older Women Should Limit Diet Drinks

Posted: Updated:

A new study shows healthy post-menopausal women who drink two or more diet drinks a day may be more likely to suffer a heart attack, stroke or have other cardiovascular problems.

Nearly 60-thousand women participated in the study, which compared women who never or rarely drank diet drinks to those who had two or more a day.

Those who had diet drinks were more likely to suffer from a cardiovascular event and 50 percent more likely to die from a related disease.
