Audio: New Study Claims Diet Soda Causes Heart Problems

AM 820 News anchor Robert Pankau spoke to ABC News correspondent Scott Goldberg about a new study that says diet soft drinks increases heart problems for women.

At the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology on Sunday, a new study was presented saying that women who drink the most diet sodas may also be more likely to develop heart disease and even to die. The findings come from a study of nearly 60,000 healthy postmenopausal women in the U.S., and basically found that those who drank two or more diet drinks a day were 30 percent more likely to have a heart attack or other cardiovascular “event,” and 50 percent more likely to die.
