IS DIET SODA DESTROYING YOUR KIDNEYS?
If you think you're doing yourself a favor by drinking DIET SODA instead of the regular stuff, you might want to think again.
--At least that's according to researchers from the Nurses' Health Study in Boston, who found that drinking diet soda can have a seriously negative effect on your KIDNEYS. Listen to this . . .
--Over the course of a two-decade study, the researchers have learned that women who drink two or more diet sodas a day will experience a 30% drop in kidney function.
--And, overall, diet soda drinkers are nearly twice as likely to suffer from early signs of kidney disease, compared to people who don't drink soda.
--So why is diet soda so bad for your kidneys? Well, the researchers aren't entirely sure. But they think it has something to do with all the high fructose corn syrup in diet soda. (AOL Health)
