Is Diet Coke unhealthy?
I used to drink 3 diet cokes a day back when I had an office job. I heard somewhere that this can lead to cancer. Is that true?
Diet Coke and other diet products have an artificial sweetener aspartame that may affect the stomach's process of releasing chemicals that are not suited to break down artificial sugar. There are claims made by The American Cancer Society that states the negative impact of artificial sweeteners such as dizziness, moodiness, Alzheimer's, ADHD, birth defects and diabetes. Meanwhile, the FDA claims the opposite, that aspartame is thoroughly tested and proven to be safe. Probably best to have a natural Coke that has real sugar so as not to hurt the natural breakdown of chemicals in your stomach.
I used to drink Diet Coke because I thought it would help me lose weight. Apparently, this makes you eat more and feel hungrier, thereby increasing your weight. There is now more evidence that diets do not effectively help you lose weight, especially Diet Coke.
