Scientists believe diet drinks could lead to depression. A new study by the "National Institute Of Environmental Health Sciences" looked at artificially-sweetened sodas, juices and teas.

Researchers found adults who consumed at least four such drinks a day increased their risk of developing depression.

The research does not prove that diet drinks cause depression, but one theory is people dealing with diabetes and obesity consume diet drinks and those conditions can often lead to depression.
