Recently, a health story about fizzy drinks was widely shared online in the UK.

Some of the newspapers went big with a study – which claimed two diet drinks a day could be linked to people dying young. These papers – including the Daily Mail – report on a major study linking diet drinks with an increased risk of dying early.

The research, which looked at more than 450,000 people across Europe, found that death rates from any cause were 26% higher among people who consumed two or more diet drinks a day, compared with those who had less than one a month.
