Research presented at the American Society of Nephrology meeting in San Diego illustrates that drinking two or more diet sodas per day decreases kidney function by 30%. The study followed 3,256 women beginning in 1984. The study compared tests on kidney function taken in 1989 and 2000. Researchers said that while all the study participants were women, there is no biological reason to think the findings would not also hold for men.
