SODA LINKED TO DEPRESSION RISK
What you drink could affect your emotions--that's according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology. The results of the study suggest that drinking sweetened beverages increases risk of depression, and drinking coffee decreases risk of depression. Specifically, researchers found that drinking four cups or cans of soda daily was linked with a 30-percent increase in risk for depression, while drinking four cups or cans of diet soda or fruit punch increased depression risk by 38-percent. Drinking four cups of coffee daily was linked with a ten-percent decrease in risk for depression. Study researcher Dr. Honglei Chen says, "Our research suggests that cutting out or down on sweetened diet drinks or replacing them with unsweetened coffee may naturally help lower your depression risk."
