Study: Diet soda drinkers more prone to heart attacks

Posted: Updated:

A new study suggests that diet drinks could boost your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

The nine-year study shows people who had at least one diet soda each day were 60 percent more likely to have vascular events, like a heart attack or stroke, compared to those that drank no diet beverages.

Experts say it doesn't prove diet sodas lead to heart disease, just that more research is needed.
