Lately i've been doing a lot of research of the negative effects of Diet Coke, just for personal knowledge. Over the last year i've been making an effort to cut back on my Diet Coke consumption (from a steady 3-6 per day to 3-6 per week) but recently I've decided to try and quit it altogether.
I had no idea how much controversy surrounds the topic of aspartame. Here are a couple of articles, and one paragraph about the FDA and the approval of aspartame from the first article:
