Diet soda raises risk of depression while coffee lowers risk

(January 8, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From North Carolina – A new report presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology finds that sweetened drinks, and diet sodas in particular, raise risk of depression. Researchers studied nearly 265,000 adults between 50 and 71 years old, evaluating participant’s soda, fruit juice, tea and coffee consumption during one year of the study. After 10 years follow-up, researchers found that people who drank 4 or more cans of soda a day were 30% more likely to be diagnosed with depression than those who drank no soda. The risk was greater among those who drank diet soda. Those who drank four or more cups of fruit juice per day were at 38% increased risk while those who drank four or more cups of coffee a day were at 10% reduced risk of depression
