The data on diet soda being worse for you is all bullshit. The animal studies they did with aspartame were laughably bad. When you force feed a mouse a significant percentage of its body weight in aspartame every day, it gets sick. No shit! You would die of water toxicity before you could drink enough diet coke to get an equivalent amount of aspartame.
