There was a collective gasp among Coke Zero and Diet Pepsi drinkers this week after media reports highlighted a new study that found prodigious consumers of artificially sweetened drinks were 26 percent more likely to die prematurely than those who rarely drank sugar-free beverages. Given the well-documented health effects of consuming too much sugar, it was little surprise the authors found that people who drank two or more glasses of sugar-sweetened beverages a day were eight percent more likely to die young compared to those who consumed less than one glass a month. But what grabbed headlines, and prompted widespread angst, was the suggestion that drinking Diet Coke could be even more deadly than drinking Coca-Cola Classic. The study is not a one-off. Over the past year, other research in the United States has found a correlation between artificially sweetened beverages and premature death. The problem, experts say, is that these and other studies have been unable to resolve a key question: Does consuming drinks sweetened with aspartame or saccharin harm your health? Or could it be that people who drink lots of Diet Snapple or Sprite Zero lead a more unhealthy lifestyle to begin with?
Sugar-sweetened beverages such as soda, sweet tea, lemonade and sweetened coffee beverages lead to excess added sugar in the diet, which may lead to weight gain. Overweight and obesity increase the risk of a variety of chronic health conditions, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers, including breast and colorectal cancer. If you drink sugary sodas on a regular basis and want to cut back on your added sugar intake, you may wonder whether diet sodas are a healthy alternative.

A new study by Cancer Council Victoria and the University of Melbourne analysed more than 35, Victorians over a twelve year period who developed 3, cases of obesity-related cancers including liver, ovary, pancreas and gallbladder.

Cancer Council Victoria CEO Todd Harper said these findings provided yet another reason for people to cut back their consumption of these drinks. Shockingly, figures show around half of Australian children aged two to 18 drink sugary drinks every day.
