People think diet soda is healthier than fizzy drinks. A new study says it can be as bad for our heart. Researchers said people should not drink diet sodas and other artificially sweetened drinks. A heart doctor said it is "fake news" that artificial sweeteners are better than sugar. Sweeteners are linked to weight gain and diabetes.

The researchers studied 100,000 people. They recorded their diet, activity level, and health status. The data showed that artificially sweetened drinks led to a risk of heart disease. A doctor said, "water and more water should be the drink of choice" for children. He said children should not have soda as it causes obesity.
