Diet drinks are just as bad for your heart as the full-sugar versions, a study has found.
French researchers tracked more than 104,000 people over ten years, looking at how many sugary or sugar-free soft drinks they consumed.
They found the consumers of both sugary and artificially sweetened drinks are up to 20 per cent more likely to suffer heart disease, stroke or heart attacks than those who avoid soft drinks.
