- Oh the irony
As already explained, aspartame is extremely bad and its long term affects are not fully understood.
And that’s a scientific fact. There isn’t actually any evidence for it, but it’s still a scientific fact.
Presumably you could fix the ill effects with some healing crystals anyway. There’s about the same amount of evidence that they work.Posted 4 years agojfletchMember
Also, a lot of research has shown that the sweetners in diet drinks physically make you crave sweet stuff a short time after you’ve had one. Research showed that people will regularly reach for a chocolate bar or cake within 30 mins of drinking a diet soda.
Wait – So bottle of full fat coke is better because although it definaneltly has 53g of sugar in diet coke might make me want a Mars Bar which has 35g of sugar and some fat.
Right. I’ll take my chances thanks.

It’s the same as the diet coke brigade. ” I’ll have a large bag of chips, 2 battered sausage, curry sauce, can I have lots of mayonnaise on my chips please….. Oh and a diet coke please”.
I prefer the taste of Diet Coke to every other soft drink, and that meal sounds great.Posted 4 years agokimbersSubscriber

The addition of Formaldehyde and formic acid in my stomach doesn’t sound like a smart move to me.
despite extensive research there has never been any proof that aspartamine yields significant amounts of formaldehyde in the body, it would have to break down into methanol first and then into formaldehyde then formic acid to do anything nasty
the amount of methanol yielded from 10 litres of diet coke would only be a few microlitres of methanol- you would get more liberated from 2 litres of fruit juice and that is still way below any toxic level
besides which diabetics consume lots of the stuff and have doen for years and they dont get cancer and die all over the placePosted 4 years agokonabunnyMember
Sweetener science is very tricky and conspiratorial – the giant corporations that own the big two have been in a science war for decades about this stuff now, and Big Sugar in the US is owned by a handful of incredibly right wing families that engage in dirty politics. They all fund psuedo-scientific research that knocks their competitors.Posted 4 years agojfletchMember
From my experience as well you only see fatties drinking diet coke.
Oh well if its from your experience then it must be true. It definiately won’t be influenced by your apparent food issues.
Stands up, looks arround
Oh, I’ve just seen a thin person drinking diet coke. Maybe I shouldn’t trust you “experience” afterall.Posted 4 years agocranberryMember
Carry on then. Your choice. From my experience as well you only see fatties drinking diet coke.
I think that you deserve your very own “defence” for that. Perhaps the “people failed to agree with me so I rather pathetically insulted them defence”.
