If you thought trading in sugary soda for low- or no-calorie drinks was a good idea, think again.

A new study suggests that diet sodas may be bad for your heart. The study followed more than 2,500 New Yorkers for nine years or more, and found that those who drank diet soda every day had a 61 percent higher risk of vascular events, like stroke and heart attack, than those who stayed away from diet drinks.

Despite the results, researchers aren't ready to tell consumers to skip diet drinks all together. They said more studies need to be done, before that happens.

Next year they will say it will lower the risk of other health related issues.

Do doctors even know what they are doing anymore?

One year they say drink 8 bottles of water a week. Next year they say you may infact be drinking to much water and its a health risk.

So what is it? Nothing but mumbo jumbo to me.
