New research suggests diet soda may play a role in the risk for Type 2 diabetes.
A study of 66,000 women showed both diet and sugar sweetened beverages were linked to a higher risk of diabetes. But diet drinkers had the highest chance of developing the condition.
Experts say these findings don’t mean diet drinks cause diabetes — but may suggest those who are prone to it tend to consume more low-calorie drinks.
The study is published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
