Studies Show That Diet Coke May Kill
The artificial sweeteners that are in most diet drinks, such as diet Coke will kill you, eventually. The National Cancer Institute identified a significant and impressive increase in brain cancer starting in about 1984.
Some scientists identified that in 1983 humans began consuming something never before consumed by humans — aspartame, a chemically created substance acting as a sugar alternative — and this is the cause of the big increase in brain cancer
Alot of aspartame had been consumed by Americans, how much? About 6.9 million pounds after aspartame was introduced to artificial sugar and diet drinks in 1984. The next year the amount was doubled, it continued increasing into '90s and the increase happened on the same time as brain cancer.
From 1984-1987, other cancers outside the brain basically remained the same or declined. However, brain cancer rates shot up
Because 10% of chemical subtances, after congestion, becomes free methyl alcohol (wood alcohol), a poison. Scientist say "the poisonous effect of methyl alcohol and its methyl esters are well-known."
Even small amounts of this poison can lead to blindness and death. The “miniscule” amounts in our common foods and drinks seem to lead to cancer
Just a thought, would be to cut artificial sweeteners out of your diet, except Stevia.
