Diet soft drinks in general

Consumption of soft drinks is increasing amongst men, women and children in the US and also in Europe. This may include both sugar-sweetened ‘regular’, and artificially sweetened ‘diet’ soft drinks. With the increased demand for soft drinks, diet sodas were formulated as an alternative product that had the intent on targeting a different audience.

Diet soft drinks, a new class of beverage, under the brand name diet refreshment, is rapidly becoming a prominent part of the partying subculture among all age groups. Initially, diet sodas were designed for diabetics and health-conscious people; however, the popularity increased when the focus shifted to people who desired to lose weight with a reduced calorie drink.

These drinks have been popularized as health drinks among many population groups such as physical fitness, and other health-conscious people. Diet soft drinks contain zero-calorie sweeteners and zero grams of added sugar.

In the Northern Manhattan Study (NOMAS), participants who drank diet soft drinks daily had an increased rate of vascular events compared to those who never drank diet soda, after adjusting for vascular risk factors. Regular soda consumption was positively associated with the rate of vascular events among those participants free of obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome at baseline.  Northern Manhattan Study (NOMAS) is a research study of stroke and stroke risk factors in the Northern Manhattan community conducted at the Neurological Institute, Columbia University.
