    No need to drink it, but I wonder if it is SAFER than sugar based or HFCS based drinks on a same intake basis?

    doesn't the fact that you have to point out that it's not dangerous, and that there are recommended limits on how much a person should consume, indicate that maybe it's not be best thing to have in the first place?

    I eat it and feel like absolute shit.
    That's the only real "study" I need in the end.

    Every time I have drank black coffee with just even a packet of a sweetener with aspartame I've gotten a slight headache. For me, this is the only clarification I need.

    Animal experiments extrapolated to humans without consideration of other possible toxic loads in the latter's current environment or other predispositions......yeah, these things always turn out so well for us

    Obviously more safe, 12 cans of sugar soda per day will give you a substantial fructose and energy overload. The 12 cans limit is a very conservative estimate though, you could probably double it without any health issues whatsoever. Personally I like to drink some diet coke when doing intermittent fasting, it gives a good diuretic effect and help me to "flush" liquids through my body before eating...

    Yikes! 12 diet sodas a day! Glad to know that aspartame is not life threatening in moderation. Diet sodas still have other artificial ingredients! Once you drink them they pass through various organs and leave a sodaprint of sorts before they exit your body. I'll stick with the real deal=Water!! I think before I were to drink a diet soda I would have a fabulous all natural microbrew! (sigh)

    Why gamble with junk like this?

    Positives of drinking diet soda:
    - You like it?

    Negatives of drinking diet soda:
    - Chemicals in a can
    - Harmful effects cannot be ruled out completely

    Easy choice for me.
