The World Health Organization has released guidelines advising against the consumption of artificially-sweetened beverages, such as Diet Coke, for weight loss.

The chemicals in these drinks may increase the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes, according to the international agency.

WHO researchers examined data from 283 studies and found that while sweeteners like aspartame and stevia may lead to a small drop in weight in the short term, they do not provide the energy deficit needed for long-term weight control.

Furthermore, long-term use of these sweeteners may lead to undesirable effects such as an increased risk of type two diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and death.

The authors suggest reducing overall sugar intake by consuming food and beverages with naturally occurring sugars, like fruit, or unsweetened options.

Sweeteners may still have a place as a transitional or stepping stone to help people reduce their sugar intake.
