Personal health is a very important topic, especially for Baby Boomers who are trying to stave off aging and its related diseases. Stroke, a "cardiovascular accident", interrupts the supply of blood to the brain. Long-term damage can be significant: partial paralysis, blindness and slurred speech all come to mind.
Meanwhile, many people are overweight and need to reduce their intake of calories. Diet soda seems like a way to keep the taste but lose the sugary calories.
My article, "Does Diet Soda Increase the Risk of Stroke? Yes, No and Maybe", asks whether diet soda is bad? Should people stop drinking diet pop? What are healthful ways to reduce the risk of stroke?
