Increased risk for stroke and dementia for those who drink dietary refreshments daily, according to research
By Pavlos Drakopoulos
People who drink daily soft drinks or artificial sweeteners, such as fructose, are almost three times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s dementia or an ischemic stroke than those who do not consume such drinks, according to a new American scientific survey.
Another relative study also shows that people who often consume soft drinks and fruit juices with sugar (more than two a day) are more likely to have worse memory, less brain volume and especially less hippocampus (the area of importance for memory).
The two investigations by scientists at the Boston University Medical School led by Matthew Peze of the Department of Neurology were presented in the journals “Stroke” and “Alzheimer & Dementia”. The studies were based on the analysis of data for approximately 4,000 people over the age of 30, in the framework of the long-term research in Framingham (Framingham Heart Study), which is now studying the children and grandchildren of the first volunteers of 1948.
