People LOVE diet soda. I have never developed the taste for it. My body rejects certain artificial sweeteners. Maybe because studies show they are really bad for you. Everything is bad for you but some people just won't stop drinking it no matter how dire the consequences may be.

They did this study I read about on the internet at the heraldbulletin.com that says diet soda was liked to dementia in older white people who drank it. Stroke was also a risk for some of the diet soda drinkers.

They say they need more research on the artificial sweeteners to determine their effects. I saw all I needed to see to know, I'll just stick with my fully leaded Coke and Sprite. Now, can we please go back to glass bottles??? Plastic sucks.
