Dave on Depression: Fighting Depression In A Glass

I’m not talking about the concept of being a “happy drunk” or anything like that.  No, the results of the study suggest that drinking sweetened beverages increases risk of depression, and drinking coffee decreases risk of depression. Specifically, researchers found that drinking four cups or cans of soda daily was linked with a 30-percent increase in risk for depression, while drinking four cups or cans of diet soda or fruit punch increased depression risk by 38-percent.  Did you pick up on that…The DIET was worse than the regular!  And there is evidence that drinking diet sodas actually lead to weight gain…and that can be depressing in and of itself!

In the cup in the other hand…drinking four cups of coffee daily was linked with a ten-percent decrease in risk for depression. Strike another blow for the judicious application of caffeine!  Study researchers suggests that cutting out or down on sweetened diet drinks or replacing them with unsweetened coffee may naturally help lower your depression risk.
