People who drink diet soft drinks gain more weight than those who drink regular soda pop, according to a study by University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio.
Researchers at the University released their finding after studying 600 people for as many as eight years.
Some test subjects drank regular soft drinks, about 140 calories per can, while others drank zero-calorie diet versions. Those who drank between one and two cans of regular soft drinks per day became obese 33 percent of the time, while diet drinkers became obese 54 percent of the time, a staggering difference of 21 percent. via NBC
Some studies also suggest that diet sodas might actually increase appetite. So if you thought diet coke (or pepsi) was good for your health, think again. The sample size is significantly large and so is the study duration so you can be rest assured that the results are correct.
