About Dr. Matthew Pase
Dr. Matthew Pase is an NHMRC Sidney Sax Senior Research Fellow at Swinburne’s Centre for Human Psychopharmacology, a visiting Research Scholar at the Department of Neurology, Boston University School of Medicine and an Investigator at the Framingham Heart Study. His primary focus is in understanding vascular contributions to Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and cognitive impairment, and he is also interested in biomarkers to predict dementia, trends in neurological disease and understanding dietary and lifestyle-based approaches to reduce the burden of dementia. Dr. Pase, wrote: “Our study shows a need to put more research into this area, given how often people drink artificially sweetened beverages. Although we did not find an association between stroke and dementia and the consumption of sugary drinks, this certainly does not mean they are a healthy option.” Dr. Pase added: “We recommend that people drink water on a regular basis instead of sugary or artificially sweetened beverages.”
