New study: Diet soda increases stroke, heart disease risk
2 or more diet sodas a day could be SERIOUSLY bad for you
Alex Reid here.
And if you're about to pour yourself a tall, frosty glass of diet soda -
You might want to pour it right down the sink instead.
Because a recent study shows that drinking 2 or more artificially-sweetened beverages a day is associated with an increased risk of everything from strokes to heart attacks.
The study focused on women, but the results were so unsettling, it suggests men won't fare much better.
Unfortunately it makes perfect sense, that an unnatural "healthy" alternative may be worse than regular soda.
And is CERTAINLY worse than just enjoying water, tea or coffee - AKA the drinks that have nourished humanity for thousands of years.
So like other supposedly "healthy alternatives" including low-fat snack food and margarine, it may be time to kick diet sodas to the dustbin.
That full study, from the AHA Stroke medical journal, is right here.
Unlike diet soda, no one believes pesticides are healthy.
(Well, no one sane that is)
But it's just now that we're understanding the true threat of pesticides like glyphosate weedkillers.
And a recent study shows how they can increase risk of certain cancer types by nearly 40%.
So if you live in a community that uses glyphosate it's time to start a SERIOUS conversation with your neighbors.
Finally, on a more positive note, exciting research from Israel is showing the therapeutic potential of MDMA - also known as ecstasy.
Formerly taboo drugs like cannabis and psychedelic mushrooms are some of the most promising areas of modern medical research.
And we're excited to see that MDMA is joining that list.
It's specifically being looked at for treating trauma in war veterans, an area where any forward progress is long overdue.
