    Hansen's Diet Soda--dangerous?

    I've always been a fan of Hansen's Diet Soda and their many flavors (tangerine lime, root beer, black cherry etc.) I know in the book it says to avoid diet sodas, but is this really dangerous? Here's the ingredients list for the tangerine lime flavor:

    Pure triple filtered carbonated water, citric acid, natural potassium citrate, acesulfame potassium, sucralose (splenda), natural fruit flavors with extracts of California tangerines and Florida and/or Colima limes

    0 calories, sodium, carbs, sugar etc.

    What do you think?

    Yes, it's dangerous.

    Don't drink it.

    Only drink it if:
    A. You want to keep your own teeth;
    B. You think that chemicals made in a lab, with pretty colours added are good for your human organs.

    I mean, seriously....what portion of those chemicals are good for you?

    A little full of yourself, aren't you? You believe in a ridiculous fad that forces you to omit all grains, dairy, and... potatoes? How RIDICULOUS! Whole grains are brain food. Wait, that explains a LOT.

    And that explains a lot. Joins May 3, 2015 to resurrect a thread from 2012 and insult someone who hasn't posted since I can't remember when.

    Maybe try a little meat? Oh and we eat potatoes and some of us eat dairy if we don't have issues with it. If you're an example of whole grains being brain food, you may have just pissed on your whole agenda.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    That's how much you know. I joined to comment on idiotic threads regardless of when they originated... and LOOK, YOU replied. Ah, ha, ha, ha, ha! BTW, I eat chicken and turkey all the time. I'm not a psycho who believes everything I read like fad diets. I eat meat and bread, I love spinach and broccoli, and I eat cookies and ice cream too. I LOVE cookies. Oh, and PIZZA! Newman's own uncured pepperoni pizza. YUM. How long you live depends on genetics and that's it. I'll be 60 year after next and have NO ISSUES with food, digestion, cholesterol, or my energy level. My Uncle drank Pepsi every single day of his 93 years of life. Betty White (currently 93) eats hot dogs/buns and coke for lunch! STOP following idiots like Mark and everyone else with their fad diets who only want to make money off of you. Get a brain and eat a sandwich!!!

    I generally avoid anything with the designation "natural," as it means nothing - it's one of those fuzzy government terms used to slip crap into food.

    Also, Splenda isn't popular here at MDA.

    Dangerous? I guess it matters how much you drink. An occasional can? A six pack per day?

    If you want to make it part of your "20," you're probably fine. But there are better things to drink, and Hanes "Natural" sodas are not really much better than any other diet soda. Also, soda is pretty expensive for something that offers nothing in the way of nutrients, so why not wean yourself off it, and use the money to buy some grass-fed beef?
