    Diet soda tied to heart attack, stroke risks: study

    At this point, the study suggests essentially nothing but I wonder if this will be replicated in the future? Still, I'd imagine many diet soda drinkers are fatties and have other bad habits. Why else would you drink that crap anyway?

    ---

    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Diet soda may benefit the waistline, but a new study suggests that people who drink it every day have a heightened risk of heart attack and stroke.
    The study, which followed almost 2,600 older adults for a decade, found that those who drank diet soda every day were 44 percent more likely than non-drinkers to suffer a heart attack or stroke.
    The findings, reported in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, don't prove that the sugar-free drinks are actually to blame.
    There may be other things about diet-soda lovers that explain the connection, researchers say.
    "What we saw was an association," said lead researcher Hannah Gardener, of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. "These people may tend to have more unhealthy habits."

    Diet soda isn't good on the waste line either.

    Yeah, I don't see how they even consider as something good for the physical body. Not to mention they didn't really need to go to a diet sodas as there was always 7-Up and Ginger Ale.

    It tastes like crap too.

    I linked through the Mercola article to this:

    Although obesity has long been known to be a risk factor for heart disease, several studies have found that a high body mass index is actually associated with a lower risk of dying from heart ailments. However, according to a new analysis, the apparent paradox may be explained by the simple fact that BMI is a very flawed measurement.
    After reading that muscular men were considered obese by this measurement (i.e. BMI) I've dismissed it.

    Were they talking about body builder types or just any guys that are muscularly built?

    They are just saying that using according to a BMI calculation muscular men generally fall into that category. They aren't talking about Mr. Universe but regular guys like us. Granted, I have a fairly small waistline too (32 pants seem a little too big). I've read it several times. It's a major criticism of BMI.

    There was a good study summarized in the NY Times recently that had a lower mortality predictor for those 5 - 10 lbs overweight versus those who had a "healthier" BMI.

    I'm convinced that BMI is useless.

    BMI is a baseline -- it is based of couch potatoes. My BMI is 27.8 = overweight. The problem is that I am not a couch potato; I have a 44 inch chest and 34 inch waist. 14% body fat.
