Problems with Diet Coke










 Diet Coke contains Aspartame, which some scientists and medical professionals believe can cause several illnesses ; such as cancer, brain tumors, brain lesions, and lymphoma when consumed in large quantities. Coca-Cola has now released Diet Coke sweetened with sucralose, also known as Splenda, which has also recently had some controversy about being carcinogenic. Also anther chemical in diet coke, sodium benzoate, was found to break down mitochondrial DNA in living yeast cells. Research has recently linked sodium benzoate with hyperactivity’s and decreased intelligence in adolescents. Other possible health side affects linked to to many soft drinks are type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, dental decay, disruption of sleep patterns, and possible reduction of bone density.
