Watch this

I also saw a video of Rodney saying he likes Diet soda but are you aware of the dangers of aspartame?

I do and it's reportable bad for you. Well all pop, with or without fake sugars are bad for you. I only have one or two pops a week, so I'm not worried :)

Funny how people eat so much processed foods today. If it's not live food then it's been pumped full of chemicals. How they make something have a crunch being in a bag of gasses for weeks is beyond me. People have back yards, maybe it's time to use them.

The same people having these problems with diet soda are the same ones that probably never drink water or eat anything healthy. Just because you get a diet coke with your fried chicken sandwich or salad drowned in a 1000 calorie dressing doesn't make it right. Some people are just addicted to the sweet taste and the caffeine rush. After drinking 3+ diet sodas a day for years, sooner or later something has to give.

Soda in general is bad for you that's for sure. I know if I drink too many day-after-day I get some mild GERD that is normally cured by drinking lots of water with aloe juice. That's how I feel right now actually after drinking this 1L of Pepsi. Makes me cough.. :(

Look at that... 9 cans a day for 9 years.... OBVIOUSLY she is gonna get a twitch in her temple its full of sugar!!!

I dont mean to be rude or anything but are some people that dumb thinking its perfectly okay to drink so much pop/coffee??

I drink water all day, everyday, 1st break, lunch, after work and dinner with Orange juice in the morning. When im thirsty? more water!

My teacher did a test in high school (approx 12yrs ago) and he put his sons tooth that just fell out in a glass of coke. The NEXT day, the tooth looked fully intact at the bottom of the glass but when he poked it with a pencil it went into a million tiny particles and dissolved in the water! After that, i maybe have a pop once a month if that...

Aspartame in low dosages is harmless (that's why they can even sell it). Unless you drink Diet soda in extreme amounts you are safe.

Not sure about you guys but whenever I drink a Pepsi I want the sugar because it increases the effect of caffeine. Also I do drink that stuff because it has at least some nutritional value, otherwise I would drink tap water (which btw. is pretty good in Tyrol). The only chemical sweetener I use from time to time is Glycerin but it is harmless, just a bit expensive for everyday use. In general I stay away from as much artificial stuff as possible.
I am not if it is the Aspertame but whenever I drink beverages containing it, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

I prefer the regular coke. Drinking diet coke is like drinking plain water with gas added.

For some of you guys who haven't know yet, DO NOT DRINK COKE WHILE EATING MENTOS.

Try putting Mentos into your coke and see the result. Its fun to watch though. :)

You can't win for losing. Have Diabetes? You have to drink diet to keep the doctor happy. Now you blow up in a toxic waste-pile if you do?

Oh man...

I was trying to cut back on my Soda drinking for a few weeks and switched over to diet to cut the sugar. After a few weeks I started feeling like I was going to pass-out and was in a fog all the time. Went back to normal Coffee, Tea and Sugar Soda's and feel better now.
