Diet Coke Anyone?

I have never tasted diet coke before, up until I started my diet last three days. To substitute for my carbonated drink that I love so much, I thought why don’t I drink diet coke instead. From what I read through the carb counter in the Atkins site, diet coke has 0 carb and no sugar at all. Therefore, as I reached the mall, I went straight to the beverage shelf and pick up a can.

Before I tried it, I read the labels on the can which says that any intake of low energy drink should be supervised by a doctor. That alone already triggered a not so comfortable feeling in me. It also says that the drink is not suitable for phenylketonurics, what the hell is that?

As I got home, I decided to give it a sip and it taste nice I thought. I wonder why does it has to be drank only with doctor’s supervision. Even my husband also tried it and says that it taste nice. To investigate on diet coke, yesterday I googled on ‘Is diet coke bad’ and I got an endless list of it. There are tonnes and tonnes of site explaining on how bad the drink is for a human being.

dietcokedangerThe culprit in the drink is the aspartame added in substitute of sugar.

Aspartame is poison!

  • Aspartame/Nutrasweet is not very sweet in itself, that may be why Equal puts Dextrose (sugar) and maltodextrin as the first ingredients, so that it tastes sweet.
  • Aspartame/Nutrasweet is a brain drug that stimulates your brain so you think that the food you’re eating tastes sweet. If you pay attention you’ll notice that when using Aspartame/Nutrasweet, everything you eat at the same time also tastes sweet! This may be why Aspartame/Nutrasweet causes you to crave carbohydrates. Hence, you won’t lose weight using it.
    BTW, cyclamates got pulled off the market in the 70’s in the US (but not Canada or the rest of the world) because the sugar industry saw too much of their market disappear.
  • Aspartame/Nutrasweet (aspartylphenylalanine-methyl-ester) breaks down to its poison constituents at 86 degrees (Aspartic Acid 40%, Phenylalanine 50%, and Methanol 10%). Remember your stomach is at 98.6 degrees! Therefore you should never use Aspartame/Nutrasweet in hot beverages or cooked foods such as Jello. How the FDA allows this remains a mystery. There is mounting evidence that the “Burning Mouth Syndrome” experienced by the Desert Storm troops was actually Methanol poisoning from the Diet Coke they drank lots of, after being exposed to desert temperatures.
  • Aspartame/Nutrasweet’s 10% Methanol appears in the body quickly and is theย  same alcohol (wood alcohol also in lacquer thinner), that your mother correctly warned you could make you blind. Many skid-row alcoholics had major problems with this cheap but deadly form of alcohol.
  • Aspartame/Nutrasweet’s 40% Aspartic Acid is an “excitotoxin” in the brain and excites neurons to death, i.e. it kills brain cells and causes other nerve damage.
  • Aspartame/Nutrasweet triggers Migraine Headaches This even happened to me!. The Usenet is filled with posts by people who have pinned their migraines down to aspartame/Nutrasweet consumption.
  • Aspartame/Nutrasweet’s breakdown products attack the bodies tissues and create Formaldehyde which builds up in the tissues forever. Remember the smelly, eye watering fumes from the frogs you dissected in school? They were preserved with Formaldehyde! Formaldehyde is thought to cause cancer.
    The American Bottlers Association did not want the FDA to approve Aspartame/Nutrasweet because of what the test report showed. But the FDA approved it anyway!
  • Airline pilots stay away from Aspartame/Nutrasweet because they are well aware of the documented dangers.
  • Aspartame/Nutrasweet also breaks down to diketopiperazine [DKP] which is proven to cause Brain Tumors! Brain Tumors used to be rare. Several of the rats in the original study formed brain tumors during their Aspartame/Nutrasweet exposure. The researchers surgically removed the tumors and returned the rats to the study and discounted the tumors.

So there it goes. I was crushed. I decided not to continue drinking it anymore. Eventhough there are many more websites saying that it’s not that harmful because the aspartame content is low, I still think that I don’t want to harm myself. I would just have to bear my craving for carbonated drink these few days.

My husband very rarely drink them. He prefers good fresh filtered plain water, and he drinks a lot of it. What about you? Do you drink carbonated drinks?

    I remember that pepsi has the same drink, they claim it no sugar. But.. the sugar replacement ingredient is much more dangerous than that.

    The better way to diet is puasa + drink more water + more vegy and fruit

  6. zaki says:

    @ Blogjer,

    Yep, that’s true. It’s better to diet with what you’ve recommended… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @ Shaz,

    You’re just like my other half. Always like to drink carbonated drinks…
    i always prohibit her from drinking it but she still drink it!

  19. NoktahHitam says:

    You know drinking too much water isn’t good too. You can read here http://www.aquasanastore.com/water-you_b01.html

    Diet coke is a no go.

  20. Piper says:

    Wow, I knew Diet Coke was bad, but I didn’t know it was THAT bad. I’ve been trying to break the soda habit completely, but so far I’ve only gotten down to 1-2 a day. It’s tough to quit soda completely!

  21. zaki says:

    @ NoktahHitam,

    Hmmm… after reading your comment, I have to say that I don’t agree with you. That lead me to click the link you provided and read it all to search the basis of your statement.

    However, the article is basically comparing tap water and bottled water. There’re no statement saying that drinking a lot of water will be bad for your health.

    Anyway, thanks for the link. At least I learn something new there ๐Ÿ™‚

    @ Piper,

    Better reduce the consumption of those carbonated drink. Or, perhaps, if you really can’t, then be strict to yourself. For every 200mL of carbonated drink you consume, drink 1 liter of plain filtered water. It will clean up the mess in your body, at least.

  22. Syam says:

    @ zakiyamani – diet coke? hm..sama je rasa dia cuma tawar sket dari yg original..still bergas dan memang tak elok utk kesihatan..kalau layan air tin season tu ok ke?

  23. zaki says:

    @ Syam,

    Season can flavored water is OK. It’s not carbonated. You can consume it everyday but better opt for normal plain water.
