Is Diet soda good for you?
Diet soda is terrible for you. Here's the skivvy. Diet soda turns your stomach acid into formaldehyde. If you don't know already, that's the the stuff that they use for corpses to preserve them. Not such a nice thing to have running rampant through your system.
Second, diet soda and coffee are the leading causes for abnormal growths, especially in women. Usually not a dangerous thing I guess. But the bother of it, the worry, is it worth it? Most women who actually perform breast exams on themselves, which isn't that many sadly, freak out when there's a lump. You run to the doctor go through all the tests, and maybe even have it biopsied! Not a fun experience if you throw in the stress of it all, let alone the fun pain time. These lumps are caused by drinking things like that. Those fake sweeteners, the caffeine content... .All not so good for your body. And growths don't always stay growths. Remember they're unnatural cells in the body, which means they're more common to turn into things like cancer.
You were asking on if it is healthy or not, and I guess you were looking more for things like, hey it has these not so healthy ingredients. Well, Diet soda is as healthy as soda gets in that aspect, but to be honest, its not worth the risk. If you really are worried about it, and want to have the right things in your system, get those flavor packets for water.
Yea yea yea. They have calories. Big WOOP. Get the stuff with the right vitamins in it and it doesn't mean anything. You need calories, and god don't calorie count. It will drive you MAD.
