Diet Drinks Tied to Depression Risk in Older Adults: Study

HealthDay News — Older adults who down several diet drinks a day may have a heightened risk of developing depression, a new study suggests.Researchers found that of more than 260,000 older adults in a U.S. survey, those who had at least four daily servings of artificially sweetened soda, iced tea or fruit punch were at increased risk of being diagnosed with depression in the next decade.People with a taste for sugar-sweetened drinks also showed a higher depression risk versus those who avoided the beverages. But the link was weaker than the one between diet drinks and depression, according to the study, which was released Jan. 8.
