People with Sweet Tooths Tend to Gain Weight
According to the latest research:
For one study, researchers at the center followed 474 diet soda drinkers, 65 to 74 years of age, for almost 10 years. They found that diet soda drinkers' waists grew 70 percent more than non-drinkers. Specifically, drinking two or more diet sodas a day busted belt sizes five times more than people who avoided the stuff entirely.In related news:
Isn't this a little like observing that where there are epidemics, one tends to find more doctors?I was reminded somehow.
I would like to commend the authors of the study in question for actually using a decent sample size. This doesn't always happen in this line of research.
