A new study reports that people who drink diet soda everyday have a 61% higher risk of stroke and heart attack than those who don’t… Looks like we may have to change the name of diet soda to DIE soda (see what I did there?)!

According to the American Heart Association, 90% of all women have at least one risk factor for heart disease, and it’s the leading cause of death for women over the age of 20. More women die of heart disease than the next four leading causes of death combined (including all forms of cancer!), and as school lunches become unhealthier our country seems to be slowly breeding young adults who may be prone to heart disease in the future. So, in other words, this is a pretty big deal!

Researchers followed more than 2,500 New Yorkers for over nine years, studying their soda intake habits and considering outside factors like age, sex, smoking, exercise, pre-existing conditions, and alcohol consumption. The scientists then presented their findings at the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference in Los Angeles.

February is American Heart Month, and celebs like Cheryl Hines, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Dita Von Teese have been spreading awareness by urging people to wear red this month.

Is anyone out there supporting Heart Month? Tell us about it!
