How much diet soda do you drink?

Have you ever had a premature birth?


Do you think the soda was related?


Personally, I am not a soda drinker so I am just curious.

I used to drink a ton of diet soda before I was pregnant I still drank it a little before I knew how bad it was now its very rare that I will take a sip. I still drink regular soda tho but try to drink more juices and water.

I do not drink Diet Soda.....ever. I steer clear of MOST artifical products and eat/drink as organic as possible. I've done this for years since my disability....it's actually made a difference in how I am affected and how I feel everyday.

I think diet soda tastes TERRIBLE, myself. All artificial sweeteners do. The flavor of them makes me gag. But I don't think they're especially healthy either.

There is absoluately no evidence that artificial sweeteners aid in weight management anyway, so it's a complete mystery to me as to why so many people consume them (diabetics aside). What's the point?

Like Dr. Oz said, we WAY overestimate how fattening a teaspoon of sugar is. Tere's nothign wrong with a little bit of sugar ere and here, but since we don't know for sure what the long term effects of the concumption of these chemicals are, why are we risking it? You couldn't pay me to drink diet soda, pregnant or not.

I never drank diet soda and still had a premature birth. To me if it is going to happen, it will happen.

I hate the way diet anything tastes! I'd much rather deal with the realish sugar then go with the fake ones!

I LOVE Diet Coke...it's pretty much that, water, or iced tea.  We don't keep any soda in our house though so the only time I treat myself is when I go out.  And when i do, I only drink one, and I ask them not to give me any refills.  It says more than 4 on a regular basis so I doubt I will have any problems associated.  I agree with the article that everything should be done in moderation.  You should never eat or drink too much of one thing.  They can probably prove that anything is unsafe in mass quantities....including things that are healthy for you.
