But the study already has its critics, as researchers admit they could not find an actual cause-and-effect relationship between the two.
Diet soda and other sugary beverages aren't the only cause of dementia. The results align with earlier research done with smaller samples, including one with 737 middle-aged participants in the Boston Puerto Rican Health Study, which found that higher sugar intake was cross-sectionally associated with Alzheimer's-like behavioral patterns.
Three times over seven years, the researchers reviewed what people were drinking.
Study participants reported their eating and drinking habits via questionnaires.
Still, only a few people in the study developed dementia or had a stroke, so the absolute risk remains small, the researchers added.
That concern is based on the way diabetes status partially mediated the association between artificially sweetened beverage consumption and dementia. When brain does not get enough supply of blood it causes Ischaemic strokes.

The plumes include 1 percent hydrogen and the remainder is a combination of molecules such as ammonia, carbon di oxide, and methane.
Although the prospective nature of the study design increases the reliability of its findings, there are limitations.
Several recent studies suggest that artificial sweeteners may also be harmful to your health. A new study indicated that cutting off some calories while using diet sodas, might increase the risk of stroke or even dementia.
"While we respect the mission of these organizations to help prevent conditions like stroke and dementia, the authors of this study acknowledge that their conclusions do not - and can not - prove cause and effect".
"Even if someone is three times as likely to develop stroke or dementia, it is by no means a certain fate", Pase said.
The study, published in the American Heart Association's journal Stroke, focused on 4,372 adults aged 45 years and above. They cautioned against over-consuming any type of sugar-sweetened or artificially beverage but said more research is needed to determine how - or if - the drinks actually damage the brain.
Gulping down an artificially sweetened beverage not only may be associated with health risks for your body, but also possibly your brain, a new study suggests. The form of stroke associated with diet drinks is known as ischemic stroke. When it comes to diet drinks, people should try to be more cautious about how many such beverages they consume.
