Depressed? It’s the Diet Soda
By Lindsay Sibson
It’s those darn bubbles.
So sparkly, crisp, excitable and delicious.
I’ve had a love-hate relationship with diet soda for years. I know it’s absolutely horrific for my health… SO BAD. Yet, occasionally, I still find myself pining to crack open a cold can.
You and I need to STOP now! Let’s help each other. But first, it’s time to take a long hard look at what diet soda has been doing to your mind, body and spirit.
In the following 6 minute video, Dr. Michael Greger discusses the dangers of drinking artificially-sweetened beverages, such as diet soda.
The harsh chemicals contained in these drinks, particularly aspartame, have been associated with depression, behavioral issues and neurological disturbances.
Aspartame has also been linked to:
- Memory Loss
- Joint Pain
- Vision Problems
- Anxiety Attacks
- Sleep Problems
- Abdominal Pains
There is NO doubt… drinking artificially-sweetened beverages has absolutely ZERO health benefits and mega health risks.
It’s time to give up the diet soda once and for all. But don’t worry, I won’t leave you empty handed.
When you are in need of a fizzy fix, try this healthy alternative instead:
- Sparkling Water: Mix with fresh fruit slices and stevia. To enhance the flavor, crush the fruit first!
Let’s DO THIS. I pledge to NEVER drink diet soda again! I’ll shed a quick tear, but I’ll live (and live more healthfully). Who’s with me?
