New studies indicate that people who consume sugar-sweetened drinks and artificially sweetened drinks, such diet sodas, have a significantly increased risk of suffering conditions linked with brain degeneration, such as brain shrinkage, loss of memory function, stroke and dementia, including dementia caused by Alzheimer’s disease.
