    Everything causes cancer, and you're gonna die anyway.

    could have seen this coming.
    also, something that they dont advertise:
    your body cant properly digest corn syrups. especially the modified high fructose types.
    sure, it may just be a sugar, but corn syrup drastically slows the metabolism because the body cant break it down like normal sugars and foods.

    I'm trying to not eat corn syrup period. I don't need it to cause cancer to know that it's bad for me.

    But if any kind of negligence can be established.... oh man

    This stuff now causes cancer, heart disease, obesity and diabetes. If it could suck the life out of a man any faster we would have to call it "woman"

    the diet sweetener is known to cause cancer too
    maybe we should just go back to all natural juice
    all these tree hugging organic only hippies might be on to something after all

    diet drinks have been found to be worse than regular in terms of being healthy.

    no we'd call it children.
    its kinda hard to avoid especially in the good ol US and it bypasses something in your body to create insulin where regular sugar does not.

    No it isn't, not if you care what you put into your body. I am not saying I never consume it, only that I avoid it like the plague. Nutrition is a matter of priorities and self discipline. The only reason it is hard to do in this country is because the average American has neither of the aforementioned...

    false. in the 70s or something of that era, many companies banded together to get rid of aspartine, an artificial sweetener. they succeed with many fake researches and such, but sometime in the 00s, it came out and the banned was left.

    however, drinking certain diet sodas in combination with a certain medicine can lead to extreme side effects like mental retardation. i forgot, but the ingredient in the soda started with a p and its pretty rare to have the disease to require the medicine. thus the combo is unlikely to happen, to but thats why i always just use water to take my meds.

    and i wouldnt worry to much about it causing cancer. for example, items listed to CA Prop 65 Carcinogens: BBQ residue and Coffee.

    WTF?? but if you look at the intake about required its an absurd amount. however, i dont recommend drinking more than 12 to 24 oz of HFC soda. itll make you fat, lazy and an addict ^_^

    That's because 200 years ago we drank water from lead pipes and thought mercury was cool to play with...
