 It has been much a touted story in the news recently; diet drinks which are artificially sweetened and caramel colored are ever more adversely affecting the health of those who consume them, particularly women.  There is a marked increase in heart attacks, strokes and even death, as cited in this March 29, 2014, Reuters article referencing a recent University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics study: http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/03/29/us-heart-dietdrinks-idUSBREA2S0AC20140329 as well as this February 10, 2014, Consumer Reports study regarding carcinogens in caramel coloring: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/news/2014/01/caramel-color-the-health-risk-that-may-be-in-your-soda/index.htm.
