Life is less sweet when you consume sweetened drinks.

This may come as no surprise to most of you, but a new study just released by the National Institute of Health (NIH), shows that the consumption of sweetened beverages (sodas, iced teas and fruit ‘juices’) leads to an increased risk for developing depression. For the real surprise, diet drinks had the largest depressive effect in the study.

There are still quite a few people in the dark when it comes to understanding diet and it’s effects on physical health. But an even greater majority of people fail to see the link between diet and mental health. So this study is of great importance.
