So now we're supposed not to drink diet beverages

It can cause strokes, dementia and simple loss of memory as you probably already know.

Dr. Oz was on the Today Show this morning. He said that the theory is the artificial sweeteners trick the brain. The beverage tastes sweet but there is no sugar.

I have been adding a splash of regular Pepsi to my diet Pepsi at fountains for a long time. That practice should solve the problem of tricking the brain.

I think I'll just continue that practice and maybe add a little sugar to my beverages at home. I'm not giving up my Pepsi. My brain is a total wreck anyway.
