    No, he'd have to drink the sugar-sweetened stuff, otherwise he'd be the Marlboro Ultra Lights Man. Maybe even the Virginia Slims Man. What self-respecting dude drinks diet soda? Come on!

    Well, we have known for a very long time that smoking is bad for our health so that's different - I learned that some forty years ago in school so nothing new about that! Aspartame on the other hand has been tested in countless scientific studies and meta-studies that show no indication that it may be unhealthy, so in worst case it is harmless. But, we still don't know whether it may positively promote longlivety or not, so maybe it turns out to extend the lives and promote health of those that has consumed it regularly over the years like me?

    So I have a question re: an earlier comment in the thread . . .

    Even know there is "no" calories (bs btw) those chemicals still tell your body that there is sugar to process and responds as if. Also ( I dont recall the article) but seltzer water ie soda hits the gut and disrupts proper digestions and expedites fat storage. I dont know if its just the digestion process or if its some other mechanism but its useless for any wellness benefit
    So seltzer water does bad things to you too? I moved my diet Pepsi habit over to seltzer water and thought that was pretty harmless. I drink regular water most of the time but like the fizzy with seltzer. How does it expedite fat storage?

    Seltzer water is high in sodium and will retain water in your body and make you look fatter than you are. CokeZero is diuretic and help to get rid of surplus water and makes you leaner...

    Yeah, but at least I drink it with a pink umbrella and a shot of cake-flavored vodka.

    I've never seen seltzer water with any sodium (some club sodas have a tiny amount, but seltzers usually none at all, at least in the U.S.), and that has nothing to do with Zanna's question

    Zanna - I've seen a lot of rumors about the bad effects of plain carbonated water, but none that are founded in anything remotely resembling logic or reason. It doesn't wither your bones or turn you to acid or make you store fat. It's just water with bubbles. Burping is the worst side effect.

    Yep, you are right, I confused Seltzer with one of the sparkling mineralwaters we have here that are loaded with sodium...

    Oh good - thanks for the clarification, RichMahogany. I can keep the several cases I bought on sale last week.
