The drinks and foods we consume have a significant impact on our health. This particular drink has been associated with an increased risk of dementia.
Everything we put into our body has an effect. While some of us are aware (such as high cholesterol and processed foods that are bad for our heart), there are foods and beverages that have amazing effects on our body that we would not know if we did not investigate them.

Subjects who drank artificially sweetened soft drinks each day were significantly more likely to develop dementia compared with subjects who drank less than once a week.
