A STUDY has linked soft drinks to depression, with diet versions particularly problematic.
Researchers in the USA studied the drink consumption of 265,000 men and women aged from 50-71 and found that those who drank more than four cans of soft drinks a day were 30 per cent more likely to have had depression than those who drank none, with an increased risk among those who preferred diet drinks.
However, those who drank around four cups of coffee a day were 10 per cent less likely to become depressed than non-coffee drinkers.
The British Soft Drinks Association urged caution over the findings and pointed out that the scientists themselves said that more research is needed.
