Indirect link found between diet drinks and diabetes

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

New research reveals diet soda may play a role in the risk for type two diabetes.

Data from 66,000 women showed both diet and sugar sweetened beverages were linked to a higher risk of diabetes but diet drinkers had the highest chance of developing the condition.

Experts say these findings don't mean diet drinks cause diabetes but may suggest those who are prone to it tend to consume more low calorie drinks.
