A previous post shared the good news that Americans are getting smarter and taking control of their health by reducing soda consumption. It was always assumed that diet sodas were off the hook, but some experts aren’t so sure those cans of artificial ingredients don’t harbor health risks of their own. (Here’s one report) At the very least, they aren’t doing anything positive for our health. So it was with interest that I read a recent Wall Street article, “Diet Soda’s Glass Looks Half Empty.” Here’s the story of Joanna Stepka, “the soda industry’s new nightmare.”
“The 33-year-old Rhode Island resident began drinking Diet Coke in kindergarten, graduating to three cans a day by adulthood. She quit in August after her gym trainer told her artificial sweeteners are unhealthy and make people fat even if they don’t have calories.”
Feel free to join the trend!
