Can anyone tell me the reason why diet coke is bad for my body?!

Question: Can anyone tell me the reason why diet coke is bad for my body!?
i have done plenty of Research but all i can find is either empty answers or things which are blown way out of proportion!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

there's a chemical in a lot of diet drinks called aspartame, which breaks down into some nasty chemicals, methanol, which can blind you if you have too much and, another one which people argue can lead to brain tumours i think!.

I think though there's so little in it that most people seem to believe its harmless, but i think some people are more susceptible than others!.

I don't know the exact science of it, but I personally try to avoid it, they use it 'cos its hundreds of times sweeter than sugar, so they can make more money!. pricks!. Whether it causes illnesses or not, diet drinks are just not good for you!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Aspartame is VERY bad for your body!.
My mother drank it for years and her body became allergic to Aspartame and now even just a sip of Diet coke or any asparteme products cause Vertigo - and she gets sick for over a week!.
Caffiene is also terrible and addicting!. It's a more addicting "drug" than nicotine - and just because millions of people are addicted, it doesn't mean that it's OK or you shouldn't be concerned!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I have heard that it's the Aspartame in diet coke (or diet anything) that's whats bad for you!. I am not sure if this is true or not but I have heard that parts of it affect your brain in a negative way!. Some people have also found that since quitting diet drinks they felt much better physically!.

Another bad thing: Supposedly drinking a lot of diet drinks can make you gain weight because your body is tricked into thinking it's getting the same amount of calories a normal coke would have!.!.but when it doesn't, it tries to make up for it by making you binge later on!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I heard that it is carcinogenic, which means it has the ability to cause cancer in your body!.

Coz it uses some other stuff which replaces the fat which is supposed to be in the coke!.

I'm sure you won't want cancer, so you better not touch that diet coke - an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!Www@FoodAQ@Com

some ppl say aspertaine will give you a brain tumor!. but you'd have to drink so much of it for it to effect you that it'd be like saying 'don't eat carrots, they'll turn your skin orange'!.!.well,they will,but you have to eat a gallon of them to do so!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

because diet coke is pretty much like coffee except it tastes way better its FULL OF CAFFINEWww@FoodAQ@Com

it is carcinogenic, which means it cause cancer in your body!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Some people believe that Aspartame is a carcinogen!. Others feel that the sweetness of it causes one to go off a healthy diet due to mental association with unhealthy, sugary foods!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
