Truth about Diet Soda - Why I won't drink it...
Locally a man had bought booth space at gunshows, etc - to spread the word about how his wife had passed due to Diet Coke, the only thing she'd drink due to wanting to watch weight. They said her brain was literally covered in plastic...

While you might not believe something as outlandish sounding as his sad story, when the FDA flat out lists Aspartame as having these side effects - I mean come on people:

Aspartame, being 180 times sweeter than sugar, has had some animal research linked consumption of high amounts of the sweetener to brain tumors and lymphoma in rodents. The FDA maintains that the sweetener is safe, but reported side effects include dizziness, headaches, diarrhea, memory loss, and mood changes.

There is also a link to the "20 unhealthiest drinks" - evidently Lemonaid - not so good for you lol. And pretty much anything liquid at Baskin-Robbins is going to get you in trouble lol.

I have fun in my downtime at work researching the chemicals on the backs of bottles. Diet soda probably leads the pack in terms of unhealthiness... some of the chemicals break down easily into carcinogens and your body doesn't know what to do with them so it sticks them in your liver or fat. GG food industry.
