  • I believe it. I watched a show where they discovered that aspartame turns into formaldehyde in your liver!

  • Didn't see the report but I would believe it. Diet soda is filled with artifical sweetners that are horrible for a body.

  • Sugar subs NEVER leave your body. Reg sugar does. It might but wieght on you but at least you pass it. I watched a show on this and autopsies. Sacran and the other subs are like gel in your body and veins. Its discusting.

  • Seems like there's something new every day regarding diet soda. I'm 11 days diet soda sober. LOL that might not seem like much, but I've tried to kick it many times and this is the first time I've gone this long and been determined to never go back. My health is so much more important than a "fix". Amazingly, I felt a lot better even within the first few days! (Then days 5-7 were pure hell, and now I'm better than ever! haha)
