I haven't heard anything about water not being healthy. I heard that apparently water bottles will cause cancer and we're all gonna die, but that's about it.

First-Anyone who discredits water's benefits is a tard. no if's and's or but's.
Second-Diet soda ok to curb the sweet tooth, not a replacement in terms of hydrating the body.

I've stopped drinking soda a while ago. The only time I have it is if bottled water isn't available.. Other the that an occasional redbull.

Water or Soda?
Thank you for your response.
You see we have a big problem because we are so used
to the Media manipulation with our brain. Therefore we
absorb any info given by them.
I invite you to visit this site Benefits of water
for independent information about benefits of water for our
health and body. Please read it, it's very interesting.

RRRREEAAALLLLY? In your "expertise", please explain this....High Fructose Corn Syrup in large amounts(ie,40g in a single can of soda)has been PROVEN to be detrimental to one's health in both clinical studies AND in real world case studies whereas aspartame has not. Go on ahead and post your case....we anxiously await

This is stupid. Water is the king. I consume probably three gallons a day and I've never felt better.
Water, (real) green tea, and the occasional milk are the only things I drink anymore. Look at the average person who drinks only water compared to the person who drinks a lot of soda and I can bet you which one is in better shape.

OH...YOU dont condone drinking soda of any sort. What are your credentials again? oh, thats right, in the other thread you felt that having experience taking a wide array of drugs and knowing how they affected you qualifies you for dispensing advice...at the age of 17. Please post the studies backing up your claims on brain tumors,headaches and carb cravings.....i'm anxiously awaiting

Well this study from 07 indicates that aspartame is safe... Buuut...
"Aspartame: A Safety Evaluation Based on Current Use Levels, Regulations and Toxicological and Epidemiological Studies" was funded by unrestricted support from Ajinomoto Company, Inc."
And more research finds: "Ajinomoto Co Inc. to acquire full ownership of NutraSweet AG and Euro-Aspartame SA.
Zug, Switzerland - March 27, 2000"
I think there is a ton of information making a case for both sides of that argument, and nothing seems to be conclusive either way depending on what side of the fence the reader is on. But in my case, just the way the FDA refused to allow it for so long, and then all the shady personnel moves that happened right around the time it was actually approved, and the claimed negative sides being cited by people who have no affiliation or reasoning that I can see to be so against it for gain or profit, Ill stay away from it personally. Studies can be made to say anything, so if it seems that the company pimping it and the people in place to make billions of dollars because of it are putting in that much of an effort to dispel that big of a case against it by people with seemingly nothing to gain, im going to remain skeptical.

Top Experts Expose Bogus 'Aspartame Is Safe' Study
Info just looks too corrupt to believe that its actually safe. But what do I know? I wont use it though.

i'll take the studies done by the nci (national cancer institute, a .gov operated site)
* A study of about half a million people, published in 2006, compared people who drank aspartame-containing beverages with those who did not. Results of the study showed that increasing levels of consumption were not associated with any risk of lymphomas, leukemias, or brain cancers in men or women. (Question 2)
* Researchers examined the relationship between aspartame intake and 1,888 lymphomas or leukemias and 315 malignant brain cancers among the participants of the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study from 1995 until 2000. Development of these cancers was not associated with estimated aspartame consumption, refuting a recent animal study with positive findings for lymphomas and leukemias and also contradicting claims regarding brain cancer risk. (Questions 3 and 8)

It's like saying eating triple whoopers with cheese is healthier than boneless chicken breasts and brown rice. It just doesn't make sense, and one questions your logic behind that assumption (be it articles or studies that prove the statement).

Worst that can happen with sugary regular sodas is pretty predictable - increased fat and if overused chronically, type 2 diabetes. Oh, and calculus and tartar deposits if you're not a responsible brusher.
Lots of articles/studies/anecdotes/whatever basically portraying aspartame as satan's compound.
By the way, I'm a firm believer in broscience so I never cite or source "findings".
