    I like how he said that the danger is regularly consuming it. I do not regularly consume it, but have one from time to time.

    Drink of choice? WATER. I never was one to drink sodas. Wrinkles don't seem to be happening either. I look at some of my friends and they are showing wrinkles because their drink of choice was a coke. emoticon

  I DO drink diet soda occasionally. However, I used to have a 6-pack a day habit. Ouch, that habit was SO hard to break.

The last soda I drank was a Thomas Kemper Oregon Marionberry. I split it with Mom, who does need the calories. No artificial sweeteners, and no corn syrup. It was delicious!

    p.s. they also cause wrinkles. my mom is 78 years old and has drank lots of water everyday, for years. she has the most beautiful, moist skin with very few wrinkles!

    Toofunny! I just read this on my email. Crazy how we know this and yet we still drink them? I'm trying to wean myself as well and did good this week until my husband bought me one.

    i got an email detailing these same findings years ago. aspartame poisoning mimics symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. i have MS and was addicted to diet pepsi, i drank at least a 6-pack a day for decades. these artificial sweeteners also trigger hunger which causes you to eat more.

my neurologist asked me to stop drinking them but i didn't at first. i finally gave them up 3 years ago and started drinking water, water, water. occasionally when i get a hankering for a soda, i drink regular soda- sugar, calories and all.

thankfully i now prefer water but it took a while to get there. Spark People has helped me stay away from harmful food and drink - especially sodas OF ANY KIND!
