Carbonated Drinks Raise Stroke Risk In Women

Women who enjoy a glass of  their favourite fizzy drink every day could unknowingly be increasing their risk of suffering a stroke in later life. Scientists at Osaka University back up in part earlier research in the United States which found that indulging in a sugary, fizzy drink once a day can increase the risk of stroke by over eighty percent. And it is not just the “full-fat” versions of these drinks which have been implicated as the research holds good for low calorie versions as well.

The research results demonstrate that women who took a daily soft drink were eighty three per cent more likely to suffer an ischaemic stroke than those who did not indulge.
