VIDEO: Diet Soda and Nutrient Depletion

We've written before about how diet sodas with artificial sweeteners actually make us eat more and can also increase your risk of diabetes. But did you know these artificially sweetened drinks can actually decrease kidney function as well? This is serious. A Harvard medical study found that over a period of 11 years, women who drank two or more diet sodas daily had a 30% decline in kidney function. That's a big drop in a very important part of the body! In this video, we discuss recent findings on how diet sodas affect kidney function, and we provide some great alternatives to diet soda.
