    Regular sugar in large quantities is bad. If you eat some trash food be sure to have good food and regular exercise. Regular exercise can go long ways in offsetting other bad habits.

    Michael J. Fox used to, they say. There has been a suspicion for a good long while.

    One problem is that the way they titled the article it lumps all diet sodas together. There are diet sodas that do not have aspartame, like the silver can of Diet Pepsi. It's aspartame free.

    The relevant company was SEARLE (Monsanto) at the the time--the 70's--the FDA wouldn't approve it. Donald Rumsfeld, SEARLE PRESIDENT, called in a 'political chit' after Reagan got elected, and after he was named to Reagan's cabinet and ASPARTAME was approved. It might be noted that the FDA head shortly thereafter left and went to work for a company that either lobbied for Searle or for Searle itself (can't remember the specifics).

    But the amount of aluminum leeched from cans into soda is insignificant to the amount of aluminum found in (for example) processed cheese, baking soda, cake mixes, etc. Packaging really doesn't confer that much.

    I believe the cans are lined with an coating material. They say the PBA coating is worse than the bare metal itself. You drink beer?

    Both of my pareants have/had dementia and none were diet pop drinkers.
    .
    The Doctor on CBS said there is not cause and effect for dementia like there was for obesity.

    When was it proven that diet pop causes obesity?
