A new study finds that people who want to stay heart healthy should avoid drinking artificially sweetened beverages like diet soda.

“The belief that artificial sweeteners are a safe substitute for sugar is fake news,” Dr. Guy L. Mintz, director of cardiovascular health & lipidology of cardiology at Northwell Health’s Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital in New York, told Healthline.

According to a recent study by French researchers, people who regularly drink artificially sweetened beverages or regularly sweetened beverages have a higher risk of stroke and heart disease than those who avoid sugary drinks.

“This study demonstrates that high consumers of sugary drinks and artificially sweetened beverages both had a higher risk of a first cardiovascular event,” continued Mintz.
