That whole article is just bs crap.

#1. No proof but it might be the cause
#2. "Whether that link is attributed to an ingredient in diet soda or the drinkers' eating habits is unclear. But is that one can really worth it?" So it's not the drinks fault but the persons.
#3. "That means people who consume diet foods might be more likely to overeat, because your body is being tricked into thinking it's eating sugar, and you crave more." Again same thing not the drinks fault.
#4. Get drunk faster... I'm in!!!!
#5. As per the article they don't use that ingrediant anymore and the new one in pure form (not mixed) is an irritant.. Who cares I'm not mixing it myself
#6. Pepsi is 2.46 which is MORE acidic than diet pepsi
#7. "Sometimes, the vessel for your beverage is just as harmful. Diet or not, soft drink cans are coated with the endocrine disruptor bisphenol A (BPA), which has been linked to everything from heart disease to obesity to reproductive problems. That's a lot of risktaking for one can of pop." WTF is this crap

Wow that was someone that likes normal soft drinks and wanted to try and justify why Diet ones are bad. Don't get into the positives just look at rumored negatives.

Downing just two or more cans a day increased waistlines by 500%

You know, I'm sure diet soda isn't healthy, but this seems like either misinterpretation of numbers or complete bullshiat. Drinking two cans of diet soda a day is not going to make a 30" waste a 180" waist.

I'm always a little confused by the diet soda hate with regards to weight loss. Seems like some people just hate the idea of fat people having anything to enjoy as they try to lose weight.

Have you had a Sprite Zero, it's far better than regular Sprite.

This. Fake sugar tastes like shiat and I can detect sucralose/aspartame/any of that garbage almost instantly when I taste something that contains it.

This is completely disingenuous, this scale is logarithmic.

With a pH of 3.2, diet soda is very acidic. (As a point of reference, the pH of battery acid is 1. Water is 7.)

I drink 6-12 diet sodas a day, along with lots of water and a reasonably healthy diet. I also exercise regularly and lead an active lifestyle, so I'm totally shiatting my pants right now.

Yup. And you'd have to be an idiot to fun a study that finds fat people drink more diet sodas and assume that the latter causes the former. Fat people drink more diet sodas because they don't want to be fat.
