Researchers tracked folks between 1995 and 2006 who regularly consumed diet drinks finding they experienced depression at a rate much higher than those who did not consume diet drinks.

Participants who regularly drank four or more cups of any kind of diet soda daily were 30% more likely to take medication for depression.

People who consumed four or more cans of diet products were 51% more likely to be diagnosed with severe depression at some point.

Conversely, people who drank four or more cups of coffee a day were 10 percent less likely to have been diagnosed with depression, compared to non-coffee drinkers.
