    Thank you all for the insightful comments about diet soda. I will think twice about drinking it now I know why it is bad. I don't drink much, but less or none would be better.

    Loaded with chemicals, including artificial sweeteners that are potentially carcinogenic and they feed your sweet tooth, making you crave more... Should we go on?

    I think the issue is with the type of sweetener they use. I was reading a very complicated article about how high levels of artificial sweetener trick the body into thinking it needs more/less insulin, so the body will store more fat. So even tho it has no calories, it can end up making you gain weight. I try to limit myself to one a day.

    welllllll have you ever read what is in a diet soda???

    Carbonated Water, Caramel Color, Aspartame, Phosphoric Acid, Potassium Benzoate (to protect taste), Natural Flavors, Citric Acid, Caffeine
    PHENYLKETONURICS: CONTAINS PHENYLALANINE Caffeine Content: 31 mg/8 fl oz, 61 mg/16 fl oz

    (did you know that "natural flavors is another term for MSG?
    ensources.html )

    and now the sciencetist are saying that there is link between caramel coloring and cancer.

    I know it's not drain cleaner, but it's not natural either. You can't go out to your "coke" tree and pick it. It has to made.
    take each ingredient and look it up, see how it is made, where it comes from.
    for me personally ...... it's a chemically made liquid that is wonderful for getting the battery acid off of your cars battery post.
    do I drink soda? I have and probably will again. (I'm not a very smart person)
    People will tell you there is nothing wrong with it, but this is one of those questions that you have to answer for your self. For me? I makes my gallbladder hurt, so there for I try very hard to avoid all sodas!
