Think diet soda helps you lose weight? Not so, Purdue study finds

Diet soda, it turns out, may not be the panacea for weight loss that we all thought — and many hoped — it was.

In fact, a Purdue University study has found that diet sodas may linked to a number of health problems from obesity to diabetes to heart disease, just like their more sugary counterparts.

Susie Swithers, a professor of psychological sciences and a behavioral neuroscientist, reviewed a number of recent studies looking at whether drinking diet pop over the long-term increases the likelihood that a person will overeat, gain weight and then develop other health problems.
