    This is a bunch of garbage. It's simple pharmacology, it metabolizes into phenylalanine, aspartate, and methanol. The first two are just amino acids and while methanol could be worrisome, extravagant quantities would be necessary.

    The study everyone hails as proof that diet soda is bad is fundamentally flawed as it is correlation based and has no control. There were three groups: no soda, diet soda, and regular soda. The order I named them is the order from lowest weight to highest weight. In other words, people drinking diet soda are typically consuming fewer calories than those that drink sugary soda. Why is no soda "better"? Because people with the will to abstain from soda are much more likely to stay away from ALL sweets.

    Have your artificial sweeteners and diet beverages, just be smart and don't overeat other **** to compensate.

    The amount of misinformation available to the public is staggering:

    You're missing well over 15 years' worth of studies.

    There's no denying that Monsanto/Searle employs some troubling business tactics, but the truth is that the stuff is safe.

    I'll choose not to drink it. Everyone is always saying hey....a little aspartame won't kill you. Well what about a little BPA a little fluoride,a little mercury, a little pthalates, some parabens, some tastey gmo food,some foods soaked in herbicides pesticides and fungicides, a little meat with some antibiotics and hormones, a little birth control and pharmaceutical residue in your water, a little aspartame, some Teflon toxins in your food....all this compounded severely taxes the liver and makes a mess for our cells. No thanks.

    Until they deem that diet soda actually causes weight-gain or health issues by something other than "making you crave sweets," I don't care. Granted, I rarely drink anything other than water, but that logic is horrible. That's like saying that people who hunt are more likely to be serial killers because the hunting caused them to crave killing living things. Stupid.

    I don't think there is a direct correlation between aspartame and weight gain. People who consume the most aspartame most likely consume the most of eveything else as well. People probably also think they can eat more bad stuff to compensate for their soda being diet. To say it is the 'cause' is like saying that it tends to be hotter in places where people eat the most ice cream and also where crime retes are the highest so therefore ice cream causes crime. May be something to it but I drink diet soda everyday and I have 8% body fat and overall am in good health..

    Agreed to fightbackhxc ... Better to stay away from this crap altogether and you wont have to care about some study. These days the companies that make our foods are no longer local farms, they are multilibillion dollar corporations and factories... Tomatoes grow under artificial light injected with "enhancers" and as a result you get a tomato the size of a cantelope to gain a heftier pricetag at the checkout stand... Chickens crammed into dark rooms by the thousands injected with hormones, I have read this stresses the animals out causing them to release toxins into their cells which we will later ingest... Who's to say this crap is being manufactured in China like everything else then slap slap some homestyle warm & fuzzy looking label on the product and ship it off... My goal is to find local farms (which are plentiful in the midwest) and stay the hell away from a label that has all kinds of S@##%t that sounds like it is synthesized in a lab just to conserve shelf age.
