I think the main problem is that it’s not natural.  Anything highly processed is bad for you.  HOwever, regular soda’s probably worse.

well, I’ve been drinking Diet Coke daily for almost 30 years.  I’m still alive, have all my teeth, all my hair, and I’m pretty sure most of my brain cells have stuck around.

I drink diet soda every day, and I’ve never noticed an adverse effect!

It’s bad for you because it’s full of chemicals.

I drink at least a can of Diet Coke a day.  I’ve heard, though, that if you’re trying to diet, the aspartame is bad for you because it increases appetite.

It’s not even real, you know? Can’t possibly be good for you…

I don’t know how bad it is for you, I just know that I do not like it.

I find that soda bloats me, so I try to stay away from it- but I do love diet coke.

Aspartame is really bad for you. I did a research paper a few years ago about sugar and sugar substitutes, and I don’t remember all the details but I believe in a couple countries aspartame is not allowed in food. It allegedly causes brain tumors among many other things. In Japan, they use Stevia in a lot of diet drinks.

That being said, I drink diet soda any time I have soda (not very often.) Sugar in high quantities is terrible for your body!

@Missus_LLC:  compared to what? 😉

Diet Soda is bad because artifical sweeteners are bad for you… if you think you are being ‘healthier’ by drinking diet, you are fooling yourself.

Some are better than others though. I drink diet right which has splenda instead of aspertame, and pepsi one which also has splenda instead of aspertame.
