I've been hearing that diet soda can give you cancer. Is this true, or is there enough evidence proving that it might be true? When we have it, I drink about two to three Diet Pepsi's a day. I want to know if I run a serious risk for cancer, because I really love Diet Pepsi and I'm actually kind've addicted to it.

being an idiot is a more serious risk, so don't worry about the diet soda.

If you love diet soda, you probably deserve cancer.

There are a grat very many things that can supposedly give you cancer: using a mobile phone, living near a phone mast, telephone wires, McDonald's. It's up to you whether you want to take precautions or not, but it's no like you imageined diet pepsi to be good for you in the first place (or did you??) Regular soda is supposedly meant to be better for you in the longn run provided you don't have weight problems, so my advice would be switch to that.

Living in a state of fear causes cancer.

I always did think that diet soda was good for me. What is so bad about it? I mean, no sugars, no calories, no carbs...

You're forgetting the chemicals in it to make it have no calories but still taste sweet. The way the chemicals break down in the body aren't the raddest ever.

Yes. The FDA would certainly allow drinks that knowingly cause cancer to be sold to people regardless of age. Yes.

Or, as I should say:

But remember in the late 80's early 90's they had to change it. So what if it's the same here? And what if they wouldn't know about it?

For me the problem with aspartame has never been that it causes cancer. It's that it tastes absolutely foul.
