Blood clots: The popular drink linked to a higher risk of clotting 'in the small arteries'


The study, co-authored by Shirley Beresford, senior associate dean and professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington School of Public Health, and co-author of the study, said: “Part of what makes this study important is that people who regularly drink soda or other sugary beverages tend to switch to artificially sweetened beverages to lose weight when the ideal is to substitute with water.”

This formation of blood clots in the small arteries is dangerous because it sets the stage for further complications such as stroke.

In fact, the findings showed that compared with women who consumed diet drinks less than once a week or not at all, women who consumed to or more per day were 23 percent more likely to have a stroke.

What’s more, they were 31 percent more likely to have a clot-caused ischaemic stroke.
