IF IT IS IN A CAN IT IS NOT GOOD FOR YOU! think the only thing that is really the best for you is water, but lets be realistic we are in 2012 where most people drink everything out of a can now soda is not good for you and diet is no better, diet soda has more chemicals then regular soda because they do not use sugar so in order to make it edible and tasty companies add a lot of chemicals to make it marketable. But think if the word "chemicals" is in your food, it cant be good for anything in your body your liver your stomach your heart..i would put down the diet soda or maybe do one a day until you can cut back.

I can taste the difference in both diet dr. pepper and coke zero. The fake sugar leaves such a bad aftertaste it sometimes makes me throw up. i have often wondered this as well, but i guess until scientists come up with a better artificial sweetener, or find out how to take the calories out of regular sugar, we just have to either drink the calories or find a way around the taste. I would just like to add that the artificial sweeteners may be very dangerous to our health. We are just starting to see the long term effects of some of the first ones invented, but things like Splenda are new, and we won't truely know if they are safe for many many years.

to make a soda diet, you must take out evry ingredien tthat has any amount of calories in it. then they must take something that will imitate the original flavor and add it instead. so no matter how hard they try, diet soda will always taste a bit different.

Yes, research after research link diet soda to obesity and heart attack. Not sure why. I drink one can a day and now I have to stop.

Diet drinks have been around for decades, and few studies have shown adverse affects of non-sugar, or artificial sugar drinks. The problem of increased diseases/sicknesses from diet drinks could, if any, be explained by people who have diabetis, or other health problems, being obese, these may drink more diet drinks. The issue, is, if you are in good health, do you want to put on weight, or loose it? More sugar = more calories, Diet drinks = less calories. Some studies, however, show that when you drink non-sugar drinks, you body may CRAVE sugar, it's sort of addictive, like chocolate. So, by switching to diet drinks, be careful not to increase your intake of say donuts, ice-cream, sugar gum, or candies loaded with sugar too. Good luck, I prefer diet Pepsi, or diet Dr. Pepper, as these almost taste like sugared drinks.
