Of course it is. It is also corrosive for your teeth. The ingredient aspartame, artificial sweetener, is not good for you. There are all these conspiracytheories behind it for its use in drinks and foods.

So does diet soda really do terrible things to your brain?

The sugar level in the soda is redik; at little under 65% is nothing but sugar.

I never touch soda, but its like a contradiction because i drink a lot of beer.

QFT... part of it is real, the other part is that we are more conscious of our world.

I drink water to the point that I don't even see the pleasure in sodas.... no complaints.

What happened to your other one did it fail, or you tossed like nino brown on thanksgiving?

Yea but soda makes your kidney work extra hard, after a while it could cause kidney failure. More likely for you because you only have one, so you have to beextra careful.

a few things....

1) obviously "soda" in general isnt nutritional

2) some say if you only drink 1 per day, you are better off drinking a regular vs. a diet. The problem is for some people, they drink 3 or more a day sodrinking straight sugar drinks you are talking major calories.

3) aspartame may or may not have long term affects but do we really know what half of the garbage they put into processed products nowadays?

4) I think each individual is different in terms of whether diet drinks increase your appetite. For me, if im hungry a diet actually makes me not hungry.
