Analysis of data from the NIH-funded Northern Manhattan Study showed that people who drank diet soft drinks every day were 43% more prone to experience a vascular event such as heart attack or stroke compared with nondrinkers, after taking pre-existing vascular diseases into consideration. Researchers also found that people who drank regular soda and those who drank diet soda less often were not at greater risk for vascular events. The findings appear in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
