Diet soda is healthier to drink then regular soda.

There has NEVER been a documented case of someone dying from "diet soda poisoning."  There has never been any death being directly related to drinking diet soda.  BUT, drinking regular soda, which is FILLED with sugar can kill you, it can not only cause not only diabetes, but obesity, which leads to death.  And there are plenty of deaths due to obesity. Obesity is quickly becoming the leading cause of death in America,  I would much rather have a drink with sugar substitute if given the choice.

diet is actually worse for you, ask any dietician. your body reacts to the fake sugar like it was real , increasing your appetite in response. you will actually gain weight drinking diet soda.

Actually it's been proven that sugar subsitute builds up in your system and causes health problems. Pop has less sugar then 100% organic juice. So juice is killing people as well.

I rarely drink soda.  I prefer water which is so much better for me.

 I must be abnormal then because I used to be addicted to coke classic. I drank a two liter every day fro over ten years.. Last September I gave it up and started drinking coke zero instead and by December I was down 20 lbs. No exercise or diet changes other then the pop. I now have quit the coke zero and drink just water as I'm trying to fix my eating habits and I know diet isnt good for you.

All of my family members have an "adverse reaction" to artificial sweeteners (nausea, headaches, tongue swelling too name a few). On those occasions when I have a soda, I'll stick with sugar.

My happiness is me, not you. Not only because you may be temporary, But also because you want me to be What I am not. I cannot be happy when i change Merely to satisfy your selfishness. Nor can I feel content when you Criticize me for not thinking your thoughts. Or for seeing like you do. You call me a rebel. And yet each time I have rejected your beliefs, You have rebelled against mine. I do not try ot mold your mind. I know you are trying hard enough , To be just you. And I cannot allow you to tell me what to be For I am concentrating on being me. You said that I was transparent, And easily forgotten. Why then did you try to use my lifetime, to prove to yourself who YOU are? -by Michelle from a leo buscaglia book
