Diet Soda May Increase Heart Attack Risk

Some potentially bad news for diet soda drinkers.

A new study found a 43 percent greater risk of stroke or heart attack for people who drank a can of diet soda a day compared to people who didn't drink any.

The study by the University of Miami and Columbia University followed more than 25 hundred people over a decade.

Researchers say they found a potential association, but they don't know the exact cause.

The study appears in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
