Correlation between artificial sweeteners and dementia?

A recent study shows a correlation between use if artificially sweetened beverages and dementia (including Alzheimer’s) and strokes, according to several news stories last week, such as this one in the Guardian.

However, when data was looked at closely and other factors were included (such as diabetes), the idea of a causal connection seemed less likely.

But some studies did not find a connection between drinking normal sodas and dementia.
