If you drink diet soda, you need to hear this.

A new study shows that certain women who drink diet soda are more likely to have heart-related diseases.

The study, the largest of its kind, compares women who rarely drink diet soda to those who drink two or more 12-ounce sodas a day.

Researchers looked at nearly 60,000 healthy middle-aged women over a nine-year period. They found women who have two or more diet sodas a day are 30 percent more likely to have some sort of heart disease and 50 percent more likely to die from a related heart disease than women who rarely or never drink diet drinks.

However, researchers say this is just the beginning, that more tests and research needs to be done.

The American Beverage Association says it is impossible to attribute their cardiovascular health to their diet beverage intake.
