2017 Progress and Innovation Award
Second Prize

Stroke Progress and Innovation Award

Congratulations to Matthew P. Pase and his co-authors for receiving the second prize in Stroke's 2017 Progress and Innovation Award.

Question: What is the key take-away message from your article?

"We found that persons drinking artificially-sweetened (diet) soda daily, as compared to less than once per week, had almost three times the risk of developing both stroke and dementia. This included a higher risk of ischemic stroke, where blood vessels in the brain become obstructed, and Alzheimer’s disease dementia, the most common form of dementia. Consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages was not associated with the risk of stroke or dementia in our study. Although more research is needed before we can draw sound conclusions, our findings suggest that diet sodas may not necessarily be a healthy alternative to sugar-sweetened beverages.”
