An excellent post from Fooducate on the perils of consuming diet sodas.  The  Coca-Cola Web page says that  some of their products contain aspartame and some contain Splenda.  From my diet counseling days, a woman was referred to me by her gastroenterologist.  She complained of stomach pains and digestive discomfort.  She also reported that she consumed about 15 cans of diet soda a day.  I’m not saying that the soda was the cause, but it does give one “food for thought.”  She wanted to sue the diet soda company (Dr. Pepper).  The doctor’s and my advice?  Guess what?  Cut back on your diet soda consumption.  What a greatl idea!!!
